GBP/USD: Minor pullback


Finding new demand.

  • EUR/USD has further improved as seen by the break of the resistances area given by 1.0679. Hourly support can be found at 1.0703 (intraday base) then 1.0570 (11.04.2017 low). Stronger support can be found at 1.0494 (22/02/2017 low). A key resistance stands at 1.0874.

  • In the longer term, the death cross late October indicated a further bearish bias. The pair has broken key support given at 1.0458 (16/03/2015 low). Key resistance holds at 1.1714 (24/08/2015 high). Expected to head towards parity.




Minor pullback.

  • GBP/USD has pause after sharp bullish rally. Resistance stands at 1.2953. Monitor the hourly support at 1.2773 (intraday base) as a break would confirm a weakening short-term bullish momentum. Hourly resistance is located at 1.2905 (18/04/2017 reaction high).

  • The long-term technical pattern is even more negative since the Brexit vote has paved the way for further decline. Long-term support given at 1.0520 (01/03/85) represents a decent target. Long-term resistance is given at 1.5018 (24/06/2015) and would indicate a long-term reversal in the negative trend. Yet, it is very unlikely at the moment.





  • USD/JPY has recently moved sideways. Next support can be located at 108.22 (17/04/2017 low). Other key supports lie at a distant 106.04 (11/11/2016 low). Hourly resistance stands at 109.10 (18/04/2017 high). Other resistance can be found at 110.11, while a key resistance stands at 112.20 (31/03/2017 high).

  • We favor a long-term bearish bias. Support is now given at 96.57 (10/08/2013 low). A gradual rise towards the major resistance at 135.15 (01/02/2002 high) seems absolutely unlikely. Expected to decline further support at 93.79 (13/06/2013 low).
