EUR/USD suffers setback while USD/JPY fights to move higher
The euro has fallen against the dollar for the first time in days, while USD/JPY continues to consolidate after recent losses.
EUR/USD suffers setback but uptrend intact
The impressive EUR/USD bounce continues and, while yesterday witnessed some late weakness, we have yet to see the full-blown reversal that might suggest the creation of a lower high.
The move back below $1.115 might begin to signal a turn lower, but as the hourly chart shows for now the uptrend remains in place, with higher lows and higher highs still being created.
GBP/USD still edging lower
GBP/USD has defended the $1.274 level over the past two sessions, but for now remains unable to break higher.
Short-term bounces have run out of steam recently, so any lower high below $1.284 would be another possible selling opportunity. A close above $1.284 would begin to suggest a broader move higher is underway, at least towards $1.30.
USD/JPY builds a base at ¥107.50
The USD/JPY continues to hold above ¥107.50, having stabilised above here at the end of last week.
Further gains above ¥108.50 would mark a more meaningful break higher, and target ¥110.00, with higher lows and higher highs along the way providing further evidence of an uptrend. A move below ¥107.50 brings ¥106.70 into view, the low from early October.
