EUR/USD – 1.1217 ( -83 or -0.73% ) The Euro is testing a key double bottom area here with plenty of support. Will the buyers step in now?

Should this occur we could see a retest into 1.1335 and any breaks above this level may mean a quick move into 1.1453 before a pause. A strong close above this level however could see the EURO rally strong into 1.1496 by the week’s end. If the EURO cannot close above 1.1249, we could see a fast move down into 1.1201 before a pause.

USD/JPY – 110.83 ( +89 or +0.81% ) Like the S&P the YEN has has found a base at the key 109.94 level which we have been speaking about for sometime. For a move to the upside we must now see this market hold strongly above 109.94. Should this occur we could see a strong move into 111.09. A strong break and close above this level could then see the $/YEN rally into 111.73, and if momentum is extremely strong to the upside 112.68 cannot be ruled out.

If Gold cannot hold above 1294, we will look for a move back down into 1285. A strong break and close below this level however takes us down into the key 1276 – 1278 area.
