Near-term Setups in GBP/USD, EUR/USD, USD/JPY & USD/MXN

Near-term Setups in GBP/USD, EUR/USD, USD/JPY & USD/MXN

Michael Boutros, Strategist

GBPUSD: Sterling has pulled back from slope resistance and is responding to initial support at 1.2828/54. Looking for a reaction here heading into the close of the week with our levels / outlook unchanged- If we break, we’ll be looking for exhaustion / long entries on a move into structural support with a breach above the weekly open at 1.2984 needed to put the bulls back in control.

EURUSD: The pair is struggling after breaking below support at 1.0872. Heading into the close of the week we could get one more thrust lower but I’m generally looking for a low in in the pair around 1.0820/30 if our interpretation is correct.

See our 2Q Euro projections and more in the DailyFX Trading Forecasts.

Near-term Setups in GBP/USD, EUR/USD, USD/JPY & USD/MXN
  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-short EURUSD- the ratio stands at -1.65 (37.7% of traders are long)- bullish reading
  • Retail traders have been net-short since April 18- the pair is up 2.5% since then
  • Long positions are 10.6% lower than yesterday but 28.7% above levels seen last week
  • Short positions are 0.2% lower than yesterday and 6.5% lower from last week
  • While broader sentiment continues to point higher, the recent narrowing in the ration does leave the immediate topside bias vulnerable heading into tomorrow’s U.S. event risk. From a trading standpoint, I’ll favor fading weakness into structural support near confluence support into 1.0820.

USDJPY: I highlighted this setup in today’s scalp report and we’re on the lookout for the risk of a near-term breakdown in the pair heading into the 61.8% retracement of the 2017 range at 114.60.

USDMXN 240min

USD/MXN 240min Chart
