EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY all move higher
EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY all made headway to the upside yesterday, with some stalling of momentum today.
EUR/USD looking for a new move higher
Buyers will be hoping that yesterday’s bounce of EUR/USD markets the beginning of a move towards $1.18 and higher, replicating the August rally.
Sellers meanwhile will look for a renewed drop that can push the price back below $1.17 and reinforce the bearish view.
GBP/USD pauses after bounce
Yesterday’s GBP/USD action seems to have put the pair back on an upward footing, and as a result more gains in the direction of $1.38 seem likely.
Sellers have a big job reversing this view, with a decline back below $1.365 needed to suggest another test of the $1.36 support area.
USD/JPY heads higher
USD/JPY has moved back to the ¥110.50 zone, and now we wait to see if it can stage a breakout after stalling around this level several times since July.
Further gains target ¥111.50, the late June peak.
