USD/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 104.99; (P) 105.53; (R1) 105.82;

USD/JPY pes to as low as 104.63 so far as decline accelerates. Firm break of 105.24 support confirms resumption of decline from 114.73. Such fall is part of the whole pattern from 118.65. Intraday bias now stays on the downside for 100% projection of 118.65 to 108.12 from 114.73 at 104.20 next. Sustained break there will pave the way to 98.97 (2016 low). On the upside, break of 106.63 resistance is needed to indicate short term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish in case of recovery.

In the bigger picture, medium term down trend from 118.65 2016 high is still in progress and extending. Build up in downside momentum argues that it might be extending the whole corrective pattern from 125.85 (2015 high). 100% projection of 118.65 to 108.12 from 114.73 at 104.20 will be a key level to watch as firm break there could bring downside acceleration. And in that case, 98.97 key support level (2016 low) would at least be breached. This bearish case will now be favored as long as 108.12 support turned resistance holds.

USD/CHF Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 0.9461; (P) 0.9488; (R1) 0.9516;

USD/CHF’s fall from 0.9568 extends lower today. But still it’s staying above 0.9423 minor support. Intraday bias remains neutral first. At this point, rebound from 0.9186 could still extend higher. But considering bearish pergence condition in 4 hour MACD, upside should be limited by 0.9626 key fibonacci level, to complete the rebound from 0.9186. Break of 0.9432 support will indicate near term reversal and turn bias to the downside for retesting 0.9186 low. Nonetheless, sustained break of 0.9626 will carry larger bullish implications.

In the bigger picture, fall from 1.0342 is seen as a medium term down trend. Current development is raising the chance that it is completed. But there is no confirmation yet. Focus will now be back on 38.2% retracement of 1.0342 (2016 high) to 0.9186 (2018 low) at 0.9626. Sustained break there will add much credence to the case of trend reversal and target 61.8% retracement at 0.9900 and above. However, rejection from 0.9626 will maintain medium term bearishness for another low below 0.9186.
