Snapshot EUR/USD - Tracking the bearish Head & Shoulders pattern!
Chart updated on 06.04.2020

The Single currency plunged to a low of $1.0771 last week, before trimming back some losses to $1.0825 this morning, as safe-haven demand boosted the U.S dollar higher across the board.

On a technical perspective, the EUR/USD appears to be tracking the bearish Head & Shoulders (H&S)pattern highlighted last week.

The H & S neckline, as illustrated on the 10 mins chart, could possibly act as magnet in the coming sessions that would propel the EUR/USD higher near $1.0850/75.

However, the pair still remain vulnerable to further downside possible near $1.0700 (H &S target level).

USD/JPY at 109.15 now, morphing its way to the downside and claiming back its safe-haven title
Chart posted on 06.04.2020

• After rallying to the downside from a high of 112.22 to 101.17 amid global pandemic threat, USD/JPY has been in a correcting mode since 9th March 2020 and seemed to have recently completed an W-X-Y Double Zig-Zag structure of Wave (2) reaching a high of 111.64 on 27th March 2020.
• Two strong indicators were flashing a trend reversal: ending diagonal at Wave 5 of Wave c and bearish RSI divergence.
• On the hourly chart, as per Elliott Wave analysis, the pair might resume its downwards trend targeting 100.64 - 93.78 to unfold Wave (3), a projection of 100%-161.8% of Fibonacci level.
• USD/JPY is percolating towards its target from 110.41 to 107.84, as per chart below.
• On a side note, resumption of a bullish USD/JPY would mark an invalidation of the Elliott Wave structure above 112.22.
