DAILY TECHNICAL ANALYSIS FOR JANUARY 17, 2022

EUR/USD

Current level – 1.1403

After the rally was limited by the resistance zone at 1.1480, the bears prevailed. The European common currency lost quite a bit of ground against the dollar and, during the early hours of today`s trading, the pair is holding positions around the psychological level at 1.1400. If the bearish prevalence continues, then the expectations will be for a test of the support at 1.1359. A breach of the mentioned zone could easily deepen the corrective move towards 1.1272. If the bulls re-enter the market, then their first resistance can be found at 1.1450. Only a successful violation of the next target at 1.1480, however, could lead to future gains and could easily head the price towards the November 2021 levels of around 1.1520. The expected data for the initial jobless claims (Thursday; 13:30 GMT) should lead to increased volatility.

USD/JPY

Current level –  114.43

The support zone at 113.75 withheld the bearish attack and the Ninja recovered some of its recent losses. The price tested the close resistance at 114.28 and, at the time of writing, is trading above the mentioned zone. A confirmation of the breach could easily lead to a recovery and could pave the way for a violation attempt of the next resistance at 114.99. If the bullish momentum fades, then a new successful test of the zone at 113.75 on behalf of the bears could mark the current move as a corrective and could easily deepen the decline towards the support zone at 113.30.

GBP/USD

Current level – 1.3670

The breach of the resistance zone at 1.3708 was not confirmed and the GBP lost some ground against the USD. The pair consolidated under the mentioned level and, if the bears prevail, then a test of the support at 1.3596 would be the most probable scenario. A violation of the next target at 1.3555, followed by a breach of the lower support at 1.3507, could lead to a change in the current sentiment of the market participants. If the bulls re-enter the market, then a new attack and a breach of the resistance zone at 1.3708 could most likely prolong the pair’s rally.

Midday update for Gold

Gold price shows bullish bias to approach the key resistance 1825.15, waiting to breach this level to confirm extending the bullish wave to reach 1860.00, supported by the EMA50, motivated by stochastic positivity, reminding you that it is important to hold above 1813.00 to continue the expected rise.

The expected trading range for today is between 1810.00 support and 1840.00 resistance.

The expected trend for today: Bullish
