GBP/USD broke the sturdy March trend-line last week, and then retested the broken threshold. The sequence has price heading lower within the confines of a channel off the recent high. Looking lower, a break below 12335 will put Cable at risk of sinking towards the next area of support under 12200. It will take a powerful push back above 12542 and the recapturing of the broken trend-line to turn the picture positive.

AUD/JPY is sitting on a couple of lines of support following a rejection from over 7600. The lack of upside response is in-line with general risk trends. This may change though and so support needs to be respected until broken. There is a wedge pattern developing that could add some punch to an eventual break. A break higher will have 7508 then the high at 76.74 in focus, while a breakdown could have strong support at 7000 in play.
