Will dollar strength continue for EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY?

EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY have been driven by the recent dollar resurgence. But will that continue?

​EUR/USD downturn looks likely to continue

EUR/USD has been on the slide following a bearish reversal breakdown seen earlier this morning.

The drop below $1.1737 seemingly paves the way for a more bearish phase, with further losses expected from here. That bearish outlook remains in play unless we see a break through the $1.1687 resistance level.

GBP/USD consolidating after recent losses

GBP/USD has seen plenty of downside over the course of September thus far, with the pair set on a new path with the break below $1.3053.

​That bearish trend looks likely to continue despite the current consolidation, with a rise through $1.3007 required to negate that outlook.

USD/JPY rise could result in another leg lower before long

USD/JPY has been on the rise over the course of the past week, with the dollar coming back into prominence after a period of weakness.

For this pair, we have a clear wider downtrend in play, and that remains the case despite short-term gains. With that in mind, another leg lower remains the most likely event unless we see a break above the ¥106.55 swing high. Watch for a break below the ¥105.24 level to bring a bearish picture into play once again. Until then, the short-term uptrend remains in play.​
