Daily Technical Insights 12 July 2022



USDJPY advances aggressively as the US Fed-BOJ monetary policy divergence continues to weigh on the pair, and the greenback remains supportive.

Technical speaking, the outlook of USDJPY catches aggressive bids on Monday at the time of writing. On the four-hour chart, bullish momentum remains strong and supportive as the pair keeps up its trade within the bullish channel. More importantly, USDJPY has breached the psychological resistance of the 137.00 mark, hovering around the upper band of the bullish channel. To the upside, a successful breakout of the resistance of 137.75 and the upper band of the channel would lead USDJPY to another rally. However, further upside momentum might be capped as the RSI indicator has reached the overbought territory, suggesting a pullback.

Resistance: 137.75

Support: 136.27, 135.36, 134.62


GBPUSD extends further slide toward 1.1867 on Monday at the time of writing amid the risk-averse market atmosphere, boosting the demand for the greenback.

From the technical perspective, GBPUSD stays under bearish pressure after failing to break the bearish channel last Friday. The intraday slide has formed a double-top pattern for the pair, suggesting a bearish momentum. On the downside, the breakout of the interim support of 1.1867 would magnify the selling pressure, highlighting the lack of buyers’ interest. According to the technical indicators, GBPUSD is expected to slide further as the RSI indicator has not yet reached the oversold region; in the meantime, the MACD has turned downside, indicating a reverse from bullish to bearish.

Resistance: 1.2063, 1.2178, 1.2272

Support: 1.1876


Gold struggles near YTD low as strong greenback buying remains unabated. Gold stays in negative territory slightly below $1,740. Gold remains bearish but somehow gathers strength to yield a fresh downside leg.

The support level of $1,732 behaves as a robust pivot to defend the last ground. If $1,732 can hold, then it is expected to see a powerful rebound as the MACD has turned positive, lending some support to bulls; in the meantime, reaching the lower band of the Bollinger Band might also initiate some meaningful recovery.

Resistance: 1766.80, 1788.13, 1805.36

Support: 1732.32
