​​​EUR/USD trades in new 3-month low

EUR/USD's descent continues as the greenback is on track for its longest weekly winning streak since 2014 amid rising US rate expectations.

​A drop through Thursday’s $1.0687 low would eye the May low at $1.0636.

​Minor resistance remains to be seen around the $1.0766 August low and along the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $1.0825 as well as at the July low at $1.0834.

​GBP/USD drops towards 200-day SMA

GBP/USD's descent has so far taken it to this week’s $1.2446 3-month low amid dovish comments by the governor of the Bank of England (BoE) Andrew Bailey who said that further rate hikes may no longer be needed.

​Below Thursday’s low at $1.2446 meanders the 200-day SMA at $1.2428 which is expected to be reached in the near future but may offer support. If not, the June trough at $1.2369 would be in focus.

​Resistance can be spotted at the $1.2549 late August low and also at the $1.2591 June low. While next higher resistance at $1.2819 isn’t bettered, the medium-term trend remains bearish.

​USD/CNH rallies to 11-month high

USD/CNH has been rallying off its two-week August low at CN¥7.2392 over five consecutive days and now trades in 11-month highs as the US dollar heads towards its eights weekly advance.

​The October 2022 peak at CN¥7.3773 is thus in sight. Minor support below the CN¥7.3497 August high can be made out at the late August high at CN¥7.3106.

​The currency pair remains in a medium-term uptrend while it trades above its CN¥7.2392 early September low.
