Regarding FX movers,

GBP/USD rose 18 pips to 1.2624.

USD/JPY fell 26 pips to 106.94.

USD/CHF gained 12 pips to 0.9413.

AUD/USD declined 18 pips to 0.6946.

USD/CAD jumped 11 pips to 1.3597.

Looking at today’s largest mover, the USD/JPY might have started a new downtrend capped by a declining trendline after prices broke below a consolidation zone. If 107.10 can hold as key resistance we may see further pressure down to retest 106.65 support. A break above 107.10 would call for a rebound towards 107.36 resistance.
