Euro – Euro is testing its long term support and is expected to bounce at 1.225 levels, this support is expected to broken to the down side after testing the 1.233 levels. Next resistance level is at 1.241 and although it might be tested is not expected to be broken for the up side, with a very strong sell signal for both short (less than an hour) and long term (day or weekly expirations). 



Oil is trading in a volatile channel for the last two weeks with long term support at 77$ and short term support at 80$, only a break of its short term resistance of 90$ and then again at 93$ will change our view for a weaker oil till the end of the month. For long term traders (expiries of a month or longer) the 80$ level looks interesting as an initial buy. For short term traders (up to an hour) consider selling above 85.2$ and buying below 84.3
