Forex Technical Update July 7, 2010  CAD/JPY Trying to Break Below 82.00   

  • Daily: The CAD/JPY pair has been sliding sharply, but has paused at 82.00, the 2010 support so far.
  • The weekly shows the possibility of dropping further to the 61.8% retracement level, which is at about 78.50.
  • The daily shows a negative reversal target of 80. If the market breaks below 82.00, these may be the next two targets.

  • 1H: The 1H chart shows a consolidation range roughly between 82 and 83.50. The support is rising. The market bounced off of 82 today, when the lows previously were 81.90 and 81.60. I will continue to stalk this pair as it consolidates. I will be waiting for a breakout preferably to the downside and a pullback.
  • The first target after a break below is 80. Then 78.50.
  • However if the market is able to break above 83.50, Look for a rally towards 85.25, the previous support, which may now be tested as resistance.
