EUR/USD struggles as GBP/USD bounces and USD/JPY pushes higher

While the pound and the yen are making headway against the dollar, the euro is having a tougher time of it.

EUR/USD tiptoes higher from intraday lower low

The price of EUR/USD eked out a lower low yesterday, edging below $1.21, with a small overnight bounce following on from this.

A continued rebound targets $1.22 and then on to $1.225. A resumption of losses below $1.21 brings $1.20 into view.

GBP/USD bounces from $1.41 yet again

The GBP/USD price continues to ferociously defend $1.41, bouncing from this support zone yet again.

The firm defence of this floor points towards the idea that the uptrend in GBP/USD is still active, but just consolidating for now. A close below $1.406 would negate this view and point towards a deeper correction.

USD/JPY continues its steady trend higher

Higher highs and higher lows since the end of April point towards a renewed move higher for USD/JPY.

Further gains head to ¥110.37, and from there back towards the March peak at ¥111.00. Should this bullish momentum stall and reverse then a drop below ¥109.20 is needed to clear the latest higher low.
