Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
The market is bearish, and the bearishness has been in place since February 16. Last week, price moved briefly below the support line at 1.2200, and then rallied in the context of a downtrend. Unless the rally enables price to overcome the resistance lines at 1.2400 and 1.2450, it would merely turn out to be another short-selling opportunity. The support lines at 1.2250, 1.2200 and 1.2150 could be reac
Dominant bias: Bullish
This pair is bearish in the long-term, neutral in the short-term, and it is quite choppy at the present. The bearishness in the market has been in place since early November 2017; plus last week was rough. Price rose from the support level at 0.9350, went above the resistance level at 0.9450, only to drop towards the support level at 0.9350 again. A breach of the support levels at 0.9350, 0.9300 and finally, 0.9250, would bring about a bearish outlook on the market. A movement to the upside would save the extant bullish bias.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
This trading instrument dropped steeply last week, losing 300 pips from the high of Monday. The movement on Friday was somehow flat, but price is expected to resume its southwards journey this week. The outlook on GBP pairs is bearish for the week, and thus, this instrument could go towards the accumulation territories at 1.3750, 1.3700 (which has been previously tested), and 1.3650.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair consolidated from Monday to Thursday, and then began to come downwards (to place more emphasis on the bearishness of the market). Price has gone below the supply levels at 106.50, and 106.00; and it may test the demand levels at 105.50, breaching it to evels at 105.50, breaching it to the downside as another demand level at 105.00 targeted. On the other hand, a strong reversal could occur, which would result in a threat to the current bearish bias.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
It is interesting to see EURJPY being engaged in a long, protracted bearish movement. Since the beginning of February, at least, 700 pups have been shed. In the past few weeks, short-term rallies have been invariably followed by further southwards movements. Price would continue moving downwards towards the demand zones at 130.00, 129.50 and 129.00. Nonetheless, a strong rally is in the offing, as the outlook on EUR pairs is bullish for this week.

GBPJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
The recent price movement on GBPJPY is similar to that of EURJPY, except the fact that GBPJPY moves faster than EURJPY. For instance, since testing the supply zone at 156.50 on February 2, price has gone downwards by more than 1,100 pips, reaching the demand zone at 145.00. More than 450 pips got dropped last week alone! All this has brought about a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which points to the possibility of price reaching other demand zones at 140.00 and 139.50. However, there could also be a strong bullish reversal in the market.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:
