EURUSD extends to new week highs. Overall, a positive/bullish ending.

Dip early in the week was bought.

The EURUSD is making another run above the broken trend line at 1.1837. The high extended to 1.1847. The swing high from July 31 stalled at that level. There was a high bar from August 4 as well.

Stay above the trend line is more bullish. Move below, takes some of bullishness out. However, it is the week's end and overall, the price action today/this week is ending more bullish, with a key target above.....

That key target above is at the 1.1876 level.

Last week, the price traded above and below that level. The significance is it was the swing low going back to June 2010 .
With the week coming to a close, the EURUSD is looking like it will end the week:
Higher overall. The price closed at 1.1771 last week
Above the 200 week MA at 1.1776
Above the 50% of the move down from the August high at 1.17992
It may end above a broken trend line on the 4-hour chart at 1.1837, but
Short of the 1.1876(swing low target from June 2010
That combination gives the buyers more control as we look to close the week.

I would put close risk for longs now at the 1.1800 level and keep the 200 week MA as another bullish above/bearish below line in the sand.

Although the price trading above and below that line in trading this week, the market pivoted around that level

USDJPY pauses for breath near session highs

A good session in Asia for the pair as N Korean concerns recede 15 Aug

A few offers/resistance expected around 110.30 and 110.50 with larger into 110.80 are the next obstacles to clear if we are to progress further, but that will depend on how NK concerns play out from here as well as US retail sales data later.

Expect demand now into 110.00 and 109.80

Yesterday it was USDCHF leading the way as I highlighted but that pair has been slower to react to this latest risk-on move. Currently 0.9735 near session highs with EURCHF underpinned still at 1.1463 but CHFJPY climbing to session highs of 113.29.

Offers/res on USDCHF between 0.9750-60 and EURCHF at 1.1480 where it's capped so far.

Demand/support into 0.9720 then 0.9700. EURCHF demand at 1.1450 and 1.1420.
