EUR/USD and GBP/USD stabilise but USD/JPY stuck below resistance
EUR/USD and GBP/USD suffered sharp drops yesterday, but some signs of stabilisation have been seen, while USD/JPY is yet to break higher.
EUR/USD attempts to stabilise
The EUR/USD pair plunged yesterday from $1.20, but the decline has slowed as the price reaches $1.19.
A possible higher low here might provide a further buying opportunity for a renewed push towards $1.20 and higher. Alternatively, further declines bring rising trendline support from the 12 August low into view around $1.183.
GBP/USD continues to climb
Dollar strength continued to weigh here as well for GBP/USD, pushing the price back from its latest high.
While the price has dropped below the 50-hour simple moving average (SMA) of $1.3384, it has moved momentum indicators back towards oversold readings, providing the potential for a new higher low and an eventual push higher. Further declines bring $1.325 into view, particularly as no-deal Brexit headlines make a return.
USD/JPY edges higher
The price continues to recover some of the ground lost last week for USD/JPY. However, gains have stalled at ¥106.10, with no sign yet of a break higher.
However, a higher low yesterday at ¥105.60 provides hope of a rise in bullish momentum, potentially opening the way towards ¥106.80 and higher. A drop below ¥105.70 might bring a more bearish view into play raising the prospect of a move back towards ¥105.25.
