GBP/USD: Continued increase


Short-term consolidation.

  • EUR/USD continues to improve and is now close to the key resistance at 1.1890 (25/09/2017 high). Strong support is given at a distance at 1.1662 (17/08/2017 low). Expected to show some short-term consolidation.

  • In the longer term, the momentum is now turning largely positive. We favour a continued bullish bias. Key resistance is holding at 1.2252 (25/12/2014 high) while strong support lies at 1.0341 (03/01/2017 low).

Continued increase.

  • GBP/USD continues to rise after the break of falling channel. A support can be found at 1.3237 (intraday low). Hourly resistances stand at 1.3265 (intraday high).

  • The long-term technical pattern is reversing. The Brexit vote had paved the way for further decline. Long-term support can be found at 1.1841 (07/10/2017 low). Long-term resistance given around 1.35 is at stake and indicates a long-term reversal in the negative trend. Yet, it is very unlikely at the moment.




Edging lower.

  • USD/JPY has failed to hold above former resistance given at 113.26 (27/09/2017 low). Support is located at 111.99 (16/10/2017 low). Downside risks are rising as markets may soon take some short-term profit.

  • We favor a long-term bearish bias. Support is now given at 99.02 (10/08/2013 low). A gradual rise towards the major resistance at 125.86 (05/06/2015 high) seems unlikely. Expected to decline further support at 93.79 (13/06/2013 low).
