Currencies trading and euro. The price of EUR/USD could not continue to grow and gain a foothold above the resistance level at 1.1280 and started to correct downwards. According to our estimates, growth in the near future is limited by the levels of 1.1450 and 1.1500, but more likely is a continuation of a downward price movement with the objectives at 1.0900, 1.0700 and 1.0550. We expect the price decline today and save a medium-term negative outlook.

Currencies trading and Japanese yen. The price of USD/JPY keeps consolidating near the level of 124.00, but cannot continue to grow and has overcome the psychologically important level of 125.00. In case of price fixing above this mark, we expect further growth to 128.00. On the other hand, breaking through the lower boundary of the rising channel and consolidation below 123.00 will be the basis for opening short positions. We recommend to keep long positions and maintain the medium-term positive outlook on the pair.
