Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for May 21, 2018


The EUR/JPY pair has failed to go seriously upwards like its USD/JPY counterpart. The bias on this cross is bearish, but it is a precarious bias. What the market did last week was a zigzag movement without a clear directional propensity (although the general outlook still remains bearish).


The price moved upwards, downwards, and upwards again, within the supply zone at 131.50 and the demand zone at 129.50. A 200 –pip movement to the upside or to the downside would easily change the bias to bullish or bearish, and that is exactly what is expected this week.

GBP/USD analysis for May 21, 2018


Recently, the GBP/USD pair has been trading downwards. As I expected, the price tested the level of 1.3394. According to the H1 time – frame, I found a successful breakout of the strong support trendline in the background, which is a sign that sellers are under control. I also found a hidden bearish divergence on the MACD oscillator, which is another sign of weakness. My advice is to watch for potential selling opportunities on the rallies. The downward target is set at the price of 1.3355 (Fibonacci expansion 161.8%)

R2: 1.3495
