Starting with commodity pairs, they see that AUD/USD is neutral, noting that only a closing break above strong resistance at 1.0414 would confirm the recent strength, opening 1.0458 and then 1.0599. They see support at 1.0300. Moving to USD/CAD, they are bullish, commenting that latest strength reinforces the broader bullish theme.

Moving to technical crosses, they see that for EUR/CHF the pair holds a neutral bias with resistance at 1.2305 ahead of 1.2398. Ahead they see support at 1.2167, ahead of 1.2120.

Finally, moving to EUR/JPY, they are again neutral and note that near-term support is at 121.15, with a break below would expose 118.73.
