EUR/USD Starting A Consolidation Phase, GBP/USD Stalling Below Support Given At 1.3046, USD/JPY Strengthening Again.

EUR/USD Starting a consolidation phase.

EUR/USD is now consolidating after its recent rally above 1.1400. Hourly support can be found at 1.1076 (18/05/2017 low). Stronger support lies at 1.0842 (11/05/2017 low).

In the longer term, the momentum is clearly negative. We favour a continued bearish bias towards parity. Key resistance holds at 1.1714 (24/08/2015 high) while strong support lies at 1.0341 (03/01/2017 low).

GBP/USD Stalling below support given at 1.3046.

GBP/USD’s momentum is higher than expected and the pair is now targeting key resistance give at 1.3046 (18/05/2017 high). Hourly support is given at 1.2589 (21/06/2017 low). Hourly resistance at 1.2818 (14/06/2017 high) has been broken. Expected to show further continued buying pressures.

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 Strengthening again.

USD/JPY is back to bullish after strong bullish rally while remaining within an uptrend channel. Hourly support can be found at 111.73 (30/06/2017 low). Strong support is located at 108.13 (17/04/2017 low). Expected to show continued pressures.

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).
