Forex Flash: Bund rally continues after bullish opening – RBS

“Bunds opened higher with a bullish gap, pointing to a likely continuation of the move upwards after reaching the first target of 143.30 and taking a breather in the nearby region. The next targets include 143.78 and 144.17, which are Fibonacci retracements from the January 2013 sell-off.” Suggests Technical Strategist Dmytro Bondar at RBS.

In addition, “Support now moves to 143.30 and 142.90/95, where the 200-day MA and retracement from July 2012 impulse waves lie. However, momentum is now showing a clear positive divergence with the price action confirmed by a bullish crossover in the oversold region, as indicated by the 10/3/3/3 slow stochastic on the chart to the right.” he adds.

Forex Flash: EUR/USD with scope for rally towards 1.3485/1.3560 - Commerzbank

Commerzbank analysts admit that the recent break through the 1.33085 high suggests unfinished business on the topside, but the EUR/USD is still under corrective action after being capped by 1.3400 resistance. There is scope for a rally towards tough long term resistance at 1.3485/1.3560 this is the location of the 2012 high (double Fibonacci retracement, the 200 week moving average and the 55 MONTH moving average), according to analyst Karen Jones, while looking for this to hold the topside and provoke failure. “Nearby support is 1.3250/00 – below here would leave the market simply ranging and heading back to the base of the channel at 1.3074. Key support is 1.30009/00 – the 6 month uptrend”, Jones wrote.
