GBP/USD: Monitoring resistance at 1.3000

EUR/USD

Strong demand.

  • EUR/USD is trading higher. Resistance now lies at 1.1172 (18/05/2017 high). Hourly support can be found at 1.0842 (11/05/2017 low). Strong support is now given at 1.0682 (21/04/2017 base) and key support can be found at 1.0494 (22/02/2017 low). Expected to continue growing higher.

  • 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.

GBP/USD

Monitoring resistance at 1.3000.

  • GBP/USD is trading higher. Hourly resistance is given at 1.2989 (07/05/2017 high). Hourly support are given at 1.2831 (04/05/2017 low) and1.2757 (21/04/2017 low). An unlikely break of this last support would indicate further weakness. Expected to push higher.

  • 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

Continued decline.

  • USD/JPY has exited the symmetrical triangle and keeps pushing lower. Stronger support is located at 108.13 (17/04/2017 low). Other key supports lie at a distant 106.04 (11/11/2016 low).The road is now wide-open for further decline.

  • 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).
