Valeria Bednarik from FXstreet.com Independent Analyst Team at 11/27/09


EUR/USD Current price: 1.4970

Losing ground quickly in firs Asian hours, risk aversion and thin volume exacerbates movements, with pair testing key support at 1.4930 before rebounding to current zone. Technically, hourly indicators seem a bit exhausted to the upside, yet bigger time frames support further falls, better after some upside short lived correction. Daily ascendant trend line at 1.4840 area, remains key midterm inflection point.

Support levels:  .4930 1.4880 1.4840

Resistance levels: 1.5020 1.5060 1.5100

GBP/USD Current price: 1.6418

Pound is falling big after GDP downward previsions, accelerating after breaking past week low of 1.6460, now turned into first resistance level to consider. Rally seems overextended from a technical point of view, yet if risk aversion extends after Nikkei opening, pair likely to extend the fall to the 1.6250 area.

Support levels: 1.6380 1.6330 1.6250

Resistance levels: 1.6460 1.6500 1.6550

USD/JPY Current price: 85.15

Breaking lower, pair has resume downtrend after breaking strong 87.10 long term support, printing already an intraday low of 84.80; as most majors, technical indicators in 1 and 4 hours charts show pair  over sold, yet with no signs of upside corrective movements but small and short lived. Daily charts and bigger time frames, had confirm the bearish continuation that should target the 83.20 area.

Support levels: 84.80 84.30 83.90

Resistance levels: 85.50 86.00 86.40

USD/CHF Current price: 1.0047

Pair has turned slightly bullish, favored both by risk aversion and SNB non official intervention early Europe. Holding under 1.0070 resistance level, an acceleration above that zone, should take the pair above 1.0100 to the 1.0140 area. Indicators along with 20 SMA regaining the bullish slope under current price, support the bias.

Support levels: 1.0030 1.0000 0.9960
