Bank of America Merrill Lynch remains bearish EUR/USD arguing that the bear trend remains on firm footing below 1.1902, the 6 week channel resistance.

Initial targets are 1.1749/1.1706 ahead of 1.1667/1.1641,” BofA projects. Longer term BofA targets 1.1500 ahead of 1.1212 and eventually 1.0588/1.0283.

“Risk of n/term basing into 1.1667/1.1641, but gains are corrective and limited to 1.1902, worst case 1.1977/1.2000,” BofA argues.

Trouble start on a break of 1.2000/1977. Bulls need a break above 1.2235 to gain control,” BofA add.

In USD/JPY, BofA is bullish and long looking for a resumption of the long term uptrend for 124.16/59.

“A break of 120.00 and then 120.83 confirms a return to trend. Below 118.05 indicates a greater base than anticipated,” BofA projects.

In line with this view, BofA maintains a long USD/JPY position from 119.41 with a target at 124.59, and a stop at 118.03.
