The USD/JPY pair has begun to follow the previous pattern of price action, tracing the descending trendline lower to once again test the 104.29 support level. A series of doji candles in the last three trading sessions has halted the break. Momentum indicators have flattened in bearish territory.
The GBP/USD pair has found an obstacle in the 1.338 resistance level which has slowed the rally. The pattern of price action indicates that sentiment is bullish and further highs may be on the cards. There also appears to be room for further upside despite RSI approaching overbought conditions.

The JP225 index has stalled at the 26,500 price level as buyers struggle to get over this price hurdle.
