Weekly Fib Confluence on YM, ES, NQ & TF...Weekly close on EUR/USD...

My post on June 4 mentioned a 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level on the Weekly charts of YM, ES, NQ & TF which falls within a Fibonacci confluence zone: http://strawberryblondesmarketsummary.blogspot.com/2011/06/really-big-pictureym-es-nq-tf.html

Here is how these 4 e-minis closed on the week:

As can be seen, they may indeed be on their way to this confluence zone...and/or their weekly 50sma (red).

Further to my posts on June 9 and May 29 on EUR/USD, price closed down on the week at the POC of the June Monthly TPO Profile and is backtesting the downtrend line (which has been in place since July 2008) for a second time since breaking out above it in May of this year as shown on the Weekly chart below. Price also closed just above the +1 deviation of a major downtrending regression channel. This appears to be an important support level and the action next week should be interesting.
