FX levels to watch: EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD

The euro has leapt higher after finding support at $1.12, while AUD/USD is preparing to challenge the top end of its recent range.

EUR/USD rallies off $1.12

EUR/USD saw strong momentum yesterday, lifting it off the $1.12 level. Fresh gains target $1.13, and then on towards $1.145.

If the $1.12 lows mark a bottom and we have a more bullish view developing, a close back below $1.12 is needed to negate this outlook.

GBP/USD tiptoes higher

There has been some limited upside for GBP/USD, but with an extension to Article 50 still to be granted, hesitation prevails.

However, if the price manages to hold $1.30 then a more bullish view might prevail, targeting $1.32 in the first instance. A close below $1.297 is needed to spark a more bearish view.

AUD/USD tests range top

AUD/USD has returned to the $0.714 area that acted as resistance in the latter half of March.

A close above $0.716 is needed to hand the initiative to the bulls and open the way to $0.72. A failure to hold above $0.716 would suggest the current range remains in place and that a move back to $0.705 is in the offing.
