FOREX Trading and Technical Analysis Observations

EUR/USD-As focused in FX Technical Weekly, the EUR/USD decline from Thursday’s high (12801) is impulsive which suggests that the larger downtrend has resumed. I am short as of this morning (from 12770, released via Twitter @JamieSaettele) with a 12805 stop. Exceeding 12801 would shift focus to former supports at 12824 and 12882.

AUD/USD-is nearing resistance from the 61.8% retracement of the decline from 10480 at 10406. I’m on the lookout for a top and reversal but understand that RBA minutes are due tonight. Exceeding 10480 would shift focus to 10550 (again).

USD/JPY-is showing signs (JS Spike bars on multiple time frames) of topping. The rally from 9/13 may be complete in 5 waves. Wave 5, from the 11/9 low, is also in 5 waves. Considering the 61.8% retracement of the decline from March at 8148, risk is to the downside.

AUD/JPY-is approaching a potentially HUGE pivot near 8500.
