Here’s the market outlook for the week:

Dominant bias: Bullish
This pair went upwards by 290 pips last week, putting greater emphasis on the recent bullish bias that has formed this month. Price closed slightly above the support line at 1.1200 on Friday. The bullish momentum is currently strong, and the resistance lines at 1.1250, 1.1300 and 1.1350 may be tested this week. This however, does not rule out possibilities of pullbacks in the market, because EUR would rise against some currencies while falling against others.

Dominant bias: Bearish
USDCHF plummeted last week, losing 280 pips and closing below the resistance level at 0.9750. Price has fallen by 340 pips since May 12, and further fall is expected this week. The support levels at 0.9700, 0.9650 and 0.9600, may be tested this week, owing to the Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. USDCHF would continue to trend southwards as long as EURUSD journeys northwards.     

Dominant bias: Bullish   
GBPUSD was able to maintain its bullishness last week. The market closed above the accumulation territory at 1.3000 on Friday, going towards the distribution territory at 1.3050 (which may be tested or even breached to the upside). On the other hand, there is also a possibility of a deep bearish correction this week, because bearish movements may occur on certain GBP pairs, and the ripple effect may affect GBPUSD.   

Dominant bias: Bearish
The market went bearish last week, thus invalidating the bullish signal that was formed earlier this month, and creating a new short-term bearish signal. Price has dropped roughly 290 pips last week, slashed the demand level at 110.50, and closed above the demand level at 111.00. The demand levels at 110.00 and 109.50 may try to reject any meaningful bearish movement, for the outlook on JPY pairs is bullish for this week. Some form of reversal may be witnessed in the market.

Dominant bias: Bullish   
This cross pair is still bullish, while being volatile in the long-term. Price has formed a zigzag pattern in the market: It went up on Monday and Tuesday, came down on Wednesday and Thursday, and then went upwards again on Friday. The present “buy” signal can push price towards the supply zones at 125.50, 126.00 and 127.50. These targets might even be exceeded, especially given the expected bullish movements on JPY pairs.
