The pair recovered above the 1.0950 level and traded towards the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last major decline from the 1.1412 high to 1.0925 low. On the upside, there are many important resistances near the 1.1000 levels.

Moreover, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.1120 on the daily chart of EUR/USD. The trend line coincides with the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last major decline from the 1.1412 high to 1.0925 low.

Above the trend line, the next major resistance is near 1.1160 and the 50-day simple moving average. Therefore, a successful close above 1.1150 and 1.1160 is needed for a decent recovery.

Conversely, if EUR/USD fails to correct higher above the 1.1150 and 1.1160 resistance levels, it could resume its decline. An immediate support is near the 1.0925 swing low, below which the pair could decline towards 1.0800 or even 1.0750.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis

Moreover, there was a close below the key 108.00 support and the 50-day simple moving average. The pair declined to a new multi-month low at 104.45 and recently started an upside correction.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis US Dollar Japanese Yen

It corrected above the 105.50 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last key decline from the 109.31 high to 104.45 low. However, there are many resistances on the upside near the 107.50 and 108.00 levels.

Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 107.50 on the daily chart. The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the last key decline from the 109.31 high to 104.45 low.

Additionally, the 50-day simple moving average is positioned near the 107.25 level to act as a resistance. Therefore, the pair is likely to face a lot of hurdles near the 107.50 and 108.00 levels.

A successful close above 108.00 is likely to start a strong upward move towards 110.00 in the coming weeks. Conversely, if USD/JPY fails to break 108.00, it could retreat lower and revisit the 105.00 support area.
