EUR/USD: Technical Analysis

The price reached 1.2900 target, mentioned in the previous analysis. The "bears" are now making attempts to breach this support. Trading is being carried out around 1.2910/15 levels.

On the other hand, the price has recently approached its yearly minimums, which…

Markets Lower after Tepid Bond Auction in Italy; EUR/JPY Falls to 10-Year Lows

Equity markets in Asia are showing losses for the third day in a row and this is putting upward pressure on both the US Dollar and Japanese Yen, with EUR/JPY reaching 10-year lows overnight and European bond yields reaching new highs.  Despite this diversification away from risk assets, Gold is continuing its weekly declines but this is seen mostly as a result of US Dollar strength (as gold is priced in US Dollars).

The MSCI Asia Pacific Index was also lower and this latest move…

Forex4you Technical Analysis 27 Dec 2011

EUR/USD: Technical Analysis

The corrective pull-back this morning has signalled a short-term reaction.
