USD is still weak against the majors, but USD index is now at important support near 110.60 from where a bounce can be seen in the next few sessions. As such, we still assume that this is just a correction within USD strength which may resume in the next few days. With that been said, we are still tracking our ending diagonals very closely; both shown on EURUSD and USDJPY, but they may not be done yet, as we do not have enough confirming price action at this stage. EURUSD needs a broken support line, while USDJPY must pass 114.30 level.
