EUR/USD: This pair consolidated last week, although bulls were able to pull their weight, thus saving the bullish bias that is extant in the market. A rise in volatility is expected this week, which could propel the market towards the resistance lines at 1.2500 and 1.2550. Pullbacks in the market may be contained around the support lines at 1.2350 and 1.2300.


USD/CHF: This currency trading instrument consolidated throughout last week, in the context of a downtrend.

Since the demand level at 108.50 was tested last week, the price has rallied by 180 pips, closing above the demand level at 110.00 on Friday. The outlook on JPY pairs is bullish for this week, and thus, the USD/JPY is expected to rally further. The next targets are the supply levels at 110.50, 111.00 and 111.50.


EUR/JPY: The EUR/JPY cross made some faint bearish effort on January 29 and 30, as it briefly went below the demand zone at 134.50.
