Major Currencies’ Midday Report 04/6/2010

EURUSD

The pair touched the awaited level from this morning at 1.2215, where it started attacking the pivotal support at 1.2175; therefore, the suggested morning scenario will be activated since we have not witnessed a clear breach of 1.2290. Note the importance of the US Labor Report which might affect the movement.

The trading range for today is among the key support at 1.2000 and the key resistance at 1.2365.

The short term trend is to the downside as far as 1.3770 remains intact with targets at 1.1700.EUR

USDJPY
The pair built a base on the previously breached 76.4% Fibonacci correction preventing it from touching the suggested retest level mentioned this morning at 91.80.
