A possible breakout is in play in EUR/USD, while USD/JPY bounces off support.
EUR/USD looks to push further after breakout
EUR/USD has managed to close above the top end of the descending channel, and if it can hold these gains then $1.14 comes into play.
A close back below $1.133 would put it back inside the descending channel.
GBP/USD holds above $1.32
The price of GBP/USD remains above $1.32, heading towards the bottom end of the recent trading range.
Further losses would target $1.305, while a rebound would suggest a turn back to $1.33 and the area of resistance over the past three days.

Further gains target ¥111.80 and resistance at the top end.
