EUR/USD – Daily Demand Zone Broken

The daily demand zone which the market fell into yesterday has been broken today but we could still see a move up occur as the price action forming suggests the bank traders are taking profits off sell trades.

USD/JPY – Sell Zone Broken By Move Higher

The sell zone which the market was making its way through yesterday has now been broken and we have a new demand zone we can use to look for entries long

This engulf also created a new demand zone which we can use to look for potential entries long if the price starts to decline again. I think this is likely because we can already see there are some signs of profit taking enter the market in the form of bearish candles so a fall back down to this zone may be possible by the end of the week.

AUD/USD – Profit Taking Entering The Market

AUD/USD retraced slightly last night and is now having trouble breaking lower with multiple bullish and bearish candles currently forming near today’s lows.

The sell zone identified in yesterday’s post is still the main place we want to be watching for entries short, if the market keeps falling to break to new lows it could be that we see a move back up into this sell zone which may give us an opportunity to get a short trade placed.
