EUR/USD and GBP/USD fall, as USD/JPY eyes fresh gains
The dollar strength theme of Monday has carried over into a new session, pushing down EUR/USD and GBP/USD while lifting USD/JPY.
EUR/USD downward move continues
After the poor start to the week, the losses have continued, EUR/USD pushing on below the 100-day simple moving average (SMA) at $1.2024 and below yesterday’s low.
A fresh test of $1.194 seems very likely, as bearish pressure continues to drive the price downwards. This negative view remains in place unless we see a move back above $1.21, which could then bring $1.22 into view once again.
GBP/USD heads lower
After starting on an upward path yesterday morning GBP/USD has steadily lost ground, moving back towards the rising 50-day SMA at $1.3724.
This is still very much a pullback rather than a turnaround in the trend, although for the time being the sellers are firmly in charge.
USD/JPY keeps climbing
This change in trend from the summer’s downward move remains strong and shows no sign of slowing. Further gains above ¥107.00 will bring ¥107.95 and ¥109.59 into view in due course.
