Daily Currency Outlook: USD/JPY And EUR/CHF : November 22,2018
USD/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 112.73; (P) 112.96; (R1) 113.27;
Intraday bias in USD/JPY remains neutral with focus on 113.09 resistance. Sustained break of 113.09 will indicate that fall from 114.20 has completed. And, intraday bias will be turned back to the upside for 114.54/73 key resistance zone. On the downside, below 112.30 will resume the fall from 114.20 to 111.37 support. Such decline is seen as the third leg of the consolidation pattern from 114.54. Downside should be contained by 38.2% retracement of 104.62 to 114.54 at 110.75 to bring rebound.
In the bigger picture, corrective fall from 118.65 (2016 high) should have completed with three waves down to 104.62. Decisive break of 114.73 resistance will likely resume whole rally from 98.97 (2016 low) to 100% projection of 98.97 to 118.65 from 104.62 at 124.30, which is reasonably close to 125.85 (2015 high). This will stay as the preferred case as long as 109.76 support holds. However, decisive break of 109.76 will dampen this bullish view and turns outlook mixed again.
EUR/CHF Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.1304; (P) 1.1326; (R1) 1.1343;
Intraday bias in EUR/CHF is turned neutral with a temporary low formed at 1.1303. For now, price actions from 1.1501 are seen as a corrective pattern. Downside should be contained by 61.8% retracement of 1.1173 to 1.1501 at 1.1298 to bring rebound. On the upside, break of 1.1433 resistance will argue that the pull back has completed. Further rise should be seen back to 1.1501 resistance first. Break of 1.1501 will revive the case of bullish trend reversal. However, sustained break of 1.1298 will turn focus back to 1.1173 low.
In the bigger picture, price actions from 1.2004 medium term top is seen as a correction only. Downside should be contained by support zone of 1.1198 (2016 high) and 61.8% retracement of 1.0629 to 1.2004 at 1.1154 to complete it and bring rebound. This cluster level is in proximity to long term channel support (now at 1.1261) too. A break of 1.2 key resistance is still expected in the medium term long term. However, sustained break of the mentioned support zone will mark reversal of the long term trend. In that case, 1.0629 key support will be back into focus.
