On the hourly charts, the prices briefly jumped in recent trading but were rejected by the 100-hour moving average and derived support from the 50-SMA.

USDJPY remains under pressure today but refrains from challenging yesterday’s lows around 106.66. The pair failed to hold above the 107.00 important level and now looks ready for a bearish extension in the near term. On the weekly timeframes, the technical picture is getting worse further as the dollar continues to grind lower after a break below the 20-weekly moving average last week. Meanwhile, the daily RSI is pointing slightly downwards, suggesting the prices may refrain from more aggressive losses at this stage. Still, the greenback will hardly be able to make a decisive coma back above 107.00 any time soon.
The cross turned slightly higher after three days of bearishness but still struggles to regain even yesterday’s losses On Friday. The euro derived support from the 200-DMA that makes up the bottom of the symmetrical triangle on the daily timeframes. A breakdown from this pattern could bring the additional bearish pressure and send the pair to the 100- and 50-DMAs at 118.70 and 118.20, respectively. The immediate support comes around 119.50, where the mentioned 200-DNA lies. On the upside, the current recovery attempts are being capped by the 120.20 region. A break above this level will open the way towards 120.50.
Following three days of measured losses, the Aussie turned higher on Friday. The pair is challenging the 0.69 barrier at the time of writing, a decisive break above which is needed for further recovery in the short term.

On the positive side, the pair continues to trade well above the three moving averages and looks set for a bullish weekly close after a jump to nearly one-year highs last week and the subsequent bearish correction.
