EUR/USD and GBP/USD muted as USD/JPY moves higher
Today’s ECB meeting could provoke some volatility in euro pairs, while USD/JPY has benefited from revived risk appetite.
EUR/USD cautious ahead of ECB
A move higher targets $1.188 and then on to $1.194. A renewed bearish view requires a move back below $1.175.
GBP/USD struggles to bounce
GBP/USD witnessed a small recovery yesterday, bouncing back above $1.36, and recovering the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) $1.37.
Further, gains head towards $1.38 and then $1.39, the latter being the peak from mid-month. For now, the bearish view is weakened, and would need a move back below $1.365 to suggest a new move lower is beginning.
USD/JPY makes further gains
The recovery of USD/JPY continues, with the price rallying over the past two sessions and bolstering the bullish view.
Yesterday saw the price move back above trendline resistance from the July peak, suggesting further bullish momentum is at hand, targeting ¥111.00 and then ¥111.65.
