The following are the latest technical setups for EUR/USD, USD/JPY, AUD/USD, and USD/CHF, as provided by the technical strategy team at Barclays Capital.
EUR/USD: We were wrong to expect selling interest near 1.1320 to cap upticks. The break above 1.1320 signals further upside towards the 1.1460 range highs. Overall our greater view is bearish against resistance in the 1.1810/75 area.
USD/JPY: No change. We are overall bullish and would buy dips within range against the 118.65 lows. A move above resistance in the 121.30 area is needed to signal upside traction towards our initial targets near 121.75. Beyond there, we are looking for a move higher towards the 123.35 area.
AUD/USD: Selling interest near 0.7280 failed to materialise. The break above signals a squeeze higher in range towards targets near 0.7440 from where we would look for signs of a top. Overall the greater trend is lower towards the 0.6895 year-to-date lows.
USD/CHF: We are overall bullish and would use downticks as an opportunity to buy at better levels against the 0.9525 area. Our initial targets are near 0.9845 and then the 0.9905 highs. A break above the latter would encourage our bullish view towards our greater targets near 1.0130.
