On the hourly time frame, the GBP/USD trend has changed to bullish. The British currency is strengthening due to the direct correlation with oil prices. The MACD indicator has become inactive. Buy trades should be considered only within the day and only from the initiative zone of the buyers. It is better to look for sell deals from the resistance levels, but after an additional confirmation in the form of a sellers’ initiative, as the buyers’ pressure is higher right now.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks down through the 1.3532 support level and consolidates below, the bullish scenario is more likely to be broken.

- Resistance levels: 114.40
The main trend of the USD/JPY currency pair is bullish. The Japanese yen is rapidly declining against the US dollar. The MACD indicator is in the positive zone, but on higher time frames there is a divergence, which means that growth is limited and the correction should be expected to take place in the nearest future. Under such market conditions, it’s better to look for buy positions from the support levels near the moving average, since the price has deviated greatly from the average line. Sell positions should be considered only throughout the day from the resistance levels, given that there is sellers’ initiative.
Alternative scenario: if the price falls below 112.19, the uptrend is more likely to be broken.

- Prev Close: 1.2368
- % chg. over the last day: -0.58%

- Support levels: 1.2312
- Resistance levels: 1.2425 1.2518, 1.2565, 1.2628, 1.2729, 1.2774
From the technical point of view, the trend of the USD/CAD currency pair is bearish. The narrowing triangle pattern turned out to be bearish. The MACD indicator has become negative, but there are still signs of divergence on higher time frames. Under such market conditions, it is better to look for sell deals from the resistance levels near the triangle pattern. Buy trades should be considered only on lower time frames from the support levels if there is the buyer’s initiative.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.2565 resistance level and fixes above, the uptrend will more likely to resume.
