FX levels to watch: EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY
A dire German PMI reading has sent EUR/USD flying, but to the downside, while USD/JPY remains under pressure following the Fed meeting.
EUR/USD sunk by PMI figures
The poor German manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMI) has been felt here, with EUR/USD dropping like a stone for a second day.
If it closes back inside the descending channel then the bearish view has undergone a remarkable revival, with a push towards the lower bound of the channel below $1.12 expected.
GBP/USD hit by selling
GBP/USD continues to press towards rising trendline support, but the downward trend of the past few days is intact.
Sellers have come in at $1.314 to push the price back down, and further declines towards $1.30 seem likely.
USD/JPY still under pressure
Having fallen below rising trendline support, USD/JPY has come under fresh pressure.
The price is funding some support above the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) at ¥110.40, but below this ¥109.55 is possible support. A rebound targets ¥111.40.
