Possible targets:

1) 55-day EMA support near 81.20.

2) Support of the upper edge of daily Ichimoku cloud near 81.30.

EurUsd: no idea on smaller time frames, switch to higher ones

Tomorrow/today is the last trading day of March and Friday also, so some extra carefulness should be in place.

What to do when you can't see what is happening? Two things ...

1) You can stand aside and watch the charts until you get some idea/trade plan ... or

$USDJPY– critical point?

Currently we are @ 82.25.  We are barely out of the uptrend so it is not yet time to call it for the bears. A break or bounce of the .618 Fibo @ 81.95 will tell the tale.  Above that we are still bullish but a significant break and we will concede to the bears.    Targets up are 83.00 and  the resistance  @ 83.28.  A breakdown targets the S5 @ 80.40 area.  …
