EUR/USD Holding below 1.1200.

EUR/USD is trading lower. The pair is still trading below strong resistance given at 1.1300 (09/11/2017 high). Hourly support can be found at 1.1076 (18/05/2017 low). Stronger support lies at 1.0842 (11/05/2017 low). Expected to show renewed bullish pressures.

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 Short-term strength.

GBP/USD is trading higher above former hourly support given at 1.2757 (21/04/2017 low). Hourly resistance lies at 1.3046 (18/05/2017 high). Expected to show continued short-term increase.

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 Consolidating.

USD/JPY is trading sideways after short-term surge. Hourly support can be found at 108.89 (14/06/2017 high). Strong support is located at 108.13 (17/04/2017 low). Hourly resistance given at 110.81 (09/06/2017 high) has been broken. Other key supports lie at a distance 106.04 (11/11/2016 low). Expected to show continued increase towards resistance given at 112.13 (24/05/2017 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).
