EUR/USD and GBP/USD recoveries falter
The euro and sterling are moving lower again against the dollar after an overnight bounce, but USD/JPY is edging higher.
EUR/USD heads lower
Yesterday’s sharp drop has carried EUR/USD back towards the recent support zone just above $1.17.
A small overnight bounce has hit resistance at $1.177, and further losses now target a move below $1.17 to break through this zone of support. A more bullish view requires a move back above $1.18 that then targets $1.187.
GBP/USD rebound falters
In common with other risk markets, the GBP/USD has attempted to rally overnight but has then fallen back towards yesterday’s lows.
For cable this area around $1.277 would mark a key level, as a move below here opens the way to move downside, towards $1.263 and down to $1.259.
USD/JPY stages recovery
USD/JPY moved higher from yesterday afternoon, and unlike other assets has not reversed lower so far this morning.
If the price moves back above ¥104.90 then a more guardedly bullish view begins to emerge. A fresh move lower targets ¥104.00 and the lows from Monday’s session.
