EUR/USD and GBP/USD stabilise as USD/JPY slips below ¥103
EUR/USD and GBP/USD have edged up after yesterday’s losses as USD/JPY drops once again.
EUR/USD steadies after drop
The EUR/USD spent three sessions near the $1.23 zone but then fell back yesterday.
However, this small drop failed to dent the ongoing bullish view that has seen trendline support bolster the move higher since early December. A move below $1.22 would break this short-term support and bring $1.208 into view. For now however the buyers remain in change with another attempt to push above $1.23 expected.
GBP/USD drops back near-3-year high
After beginning the new trading year with solid gains the price fell of GBP/USD back, but here too the upward trend of recent weeks has not yet been disturbed.
Below $1.354 a more bearish short-term view will emerge, while a bounce from near-term trendline support would result in another move towards $1.37.
USD/JPY still in retreat
The downtrend of USD/JPY continues to deliver, as the price slips below ¥103 once more after yesterday’s new lower low.
There has been little in the way of any bullish price action, with lower highs over the past few sessions confirming the strength of the downward move, a point reinforced by continuing low readings for stochastics and moving average convergence/divergence (MACD).
