Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. You could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. The risks of loss from investing in CFDs can be substantial and the value of your investments may fluctuate. CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. You should consider whether you understand how this product works, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

FX levels to watch: EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY

A small rebound in USD/JPY might suggest a near-term low is at hand, but the sellers continue to push GBP/USD lower.

EUR/USD stalls after breakout

EUR/USD has pushed through trendline resistance, although gains above $1.125 and the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) have proven hard to sustain.

Dips towards $1.122 have found buyers, while a push back towards $1.12 may encounter support at the previously broken trendline. Further gains above $1.126 are needed to revive the bullish view.

GBP/USD still declining

Losses have continued apace for GBP/USD, with rallies towards $1.304 over the past three sessions providing strong selling opportunities.

Further declines target $1.286, and then on to $1.2773. A more bullish view requires a push back above $1.304.

USD/JPY stabilizes for now

The retreat in risk assets has been felt in USD/JPY too, but the price is stabilizing for the time being above ¥109.

However, as yet the price is still to break though yesterday’s lower highs at ¥110. A failure to push on above ¥110 would create another possible selling opportunity.
