MARKET OVERVIEW – JANUARY 19 2012
Will the euro strengthen versus the yen?

GBP/USD broke through the levels of resistance from R1-R3 on Wednesday to reach a fresh 5-day high 1.5440, ending the American session 0.68% higher at 1.5435, this represented cables's third successive day of gains. As is its habit on occasion USD/JPY traded in a very limited 76.65/86 range before ending the American session virtually unchanged, at 76.81. The Swiss Franc strengthened versus many major counter party currencies as the US Dollar weakened, the USD/CHF fell to its lowest level in two weeks, below the psychological level of 0.9400. The pair flattened at 0.9382, remaining below 0.9400. The Swissy also rose versus its European rivals. The EUR/CHF broke below 1.2080 to 1.2067, tempting last week's lows at 1.2062, GBP/CHF fell sharply from 1.4515 to 1.4482. EUR/USD ended trading in the New York session circa 1% higher at 1.2862, just below the 20-day EMA resistance level seen at 1.2870 with support seen at 1.2840.

AUD/USD spent Wednesday trading below 1.0450 a 2-month high. The pair ended trading in New York higher for the third consecutive day, closing at 1.0435, up from a session low of 1.0355. A Kiwi sell-off occurred across the markets after a 0.3% fall in inflation was published. NZD/USD lost 45-50 pips rapidly after a sell off took the pair as low as 0.8025 from its earlier highs of 0.8080. After peaking at 1.0176, USD/CAD lost momentum dropping over half a cent late Wednesday currently printing circa 1.0120, a couple of points above Wednesday's daily low of 1.0118.

Intraday Analysis: EURUSD rose yesterday towards resistance at 1.2878 (R1) and now it is testing the downtrend trend line again. A break above that level we can expect price to move towards 1.2989 (R2) and this is a proper conformation for a trend reversal. On the downside, if the pair do not manage to break above first resistance then we expect to move towards 1.2807 (S1) and then 1.2714 (S2).
