A breakout below 30450 would call for 30070 and 29660 as downside targets.
USDJPY picks up bids to extend the week-start rebound amid cautious optimism. USDJPY holds onto the week-start recovery around 136.00 as Tokyo opens on Tuesday.
The RSI is bullish and calls for further upside.

Alternatively, if the price breaks out below 135.50, the further downside path will be open, with 135.20 and 134.90 as targets.
Gold Price (XAU/USD) remains pressured around $1,807, after beginning the week’s trading on a negative side, as traders stay worried ahead of crucial catalysts up for publication during the week.
The RSI lacks downward momentum.
Buyers may find the opportunity to go in should the price break out above 1802.00, with targets at 1814.00 and 1819.00 in extension.
A slide below 1802.00 would open the path to 1797.00 and 1792.00 as downside targets.

The RSI is above its neutrality area at 50%.
If the price manages to rise above the 109.00 mark, the further upward path will be open, with targets at 111.30 and 112.40 in extension.
A downslide below 109.00 would call for 107.20 and 106.00 next.
EURUSD is attempting to move higher in a risk-on start in Tokyo as the US dollar struggles to pick up demand on Tuesday. The pair is consolidating in a 4-hour 100 pip bow between 1.0400 and 1.0500 which has been established in the first week of the new month while the price carves out a daily triple bottom.
The RSI is primed for a bounce.
A price jump above 1.0410 would call for 1.0460 and 1.0485 in extension.
A drop below 1.0410 would open the downside, with 1.0390 and 1.0370 as targets.
GBPUSD remains sidelined as it portrays a bullish chart formation. GBPUSD holds onto the previous day’s breakout of a weekly resistance despite taking rounds to 1.2100 during Tuesday’s initial Asian session.
Although a continuation of the consolidation cannot be ruled out, its extent should be limited.
Long positions will be favoured if the price surpasses the 1.2080 mark and continues climbing towards1.2145 and then 1.2165 in extension.
A breakout below 1.2080 would open the downside, with 1.2060 and 1.2040 as targets.
