The EUR/USD currency pair
- Prev Open: 1.1682
- Prev Close: 1.1596
- % chg. over the last day: -0.74%
The EUR/USD exchange rate decreased to its lowest level in 14 months as the energy crisis in Europe, caused by a sharp increase in natural gas prices, raises concerns about the strength of the economic recovery in the Eurozone and increases negative pressure on the currency.
- Support levels: 1.1564, 1.1453
- Resistance levels: 1.1671, 1.1717, 1.1772, 1.1802, 1.1835
From the technical point of view, the EUR/USD trend has changed to bearish. On the background of the weakness of the European currency, the quotes went down sharply. The price has broken through and consolidated below the priority change level. Under such market conditions, traders should consider sell deals from the resistance levels near the moving average, as the price has deviated strongly from the middle line. Buy trades should be considered only from the support levels with additional confirmation in the form of a buyers' initiative.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.1717 resistance level and fixes above, the mid-term uptrend will likely resume.

The Japanese Yen futures continue to decline as a result of the strengthening dollar index and a slowdown in the economic recovery in Japan.

- Support levels: 111.49, 110.95, 110.65, 110.40, 109.95, 109.63, 109.27
- Resistance levels: 112.19
The main trend of the USD/JPY currency pair is bullish. Against the background of the Japanese Yen weakness and strengthening of the dollar index, the USD/JPY quotes continue to grow. The angle of the ascending channel has decreased, while the MACD indicator continues to signal overbuying and divergence. All these are signs of the buyer's weakness. Under such market conditions, it’s better to look for buy positions from the support levels after a small pullback. The price has deviated strongly from the moving average, and now there is a high probability of decline. Sell positions should be considered only throughout the day from the resistance levels in conjunction with the sellers' initiative.
Alternative scenario: if the price falls below 110.45, the uptrend is likely to be broken.

- % chg. over the last day: +0.53%

- Support levels: 1.2701, 1.2611, 1.2565, 1.2518, 1.2425
- Resistance levels: 1.2774, 1.2891

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.2774 resistance level and fixes above, the uptrend will likely resume.
