EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY & Gold Price Levels in Play

EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY & Gold Price Levels in Play

Paul Robinson, Strategist

The U.S. Dollar is looking stronger against pretty much everything except perhaps the Japanese Yen. The Euro is slowly rolling over towards last month’s low, while GBPUSD is on the verge of testing an important inflection point that may induce a bounce. Gold price is testing the August trend-line, a failure to hold could quickly lead to lower levels.

Technical Highlights:

  • EURUSD looking towards April lows
  • GBPUSD nearing big inflection point
  • USDJPY posting potential bear-flag
  • Gold price hanging on August t-line

Fresh Q2 Forecasts are out for major markets and currencies. Check them out on the DailyFX Trading Guides page.

EURUSD looking towards April lows

The Euro continues to weaken as most currencies are against the Dollar, with the April low around the 11110 mark as the next level of meaningful support. Just below there lies a series of underside trend-lines to be mindful of if weakness should carry the Euro down there. For months the pattern has been for a drop to a new swing-low, then an immediate bounce. I’ll continue to expect this to be the case until we see definitive signs of a change in behavior.

GBPUSD nearing big inflection point

Cable has a big spot to watch in the 12660s, where the August 15 low and January 15 spike-low arrive within only a few pips of one another. The fact the August low held meaning and that we had a 200-point reversal-day at the same level, make it a worthy spot to watch for a reaction. Furthering this notion is the fact that GBPUSD has been beaten down quite a bit lately and large swings for some time now have seen strong countertrend moves at the least.

EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY & Gold Price Levels in Play

USDJPY posting potential bear-flag

USDJPY is countering its recent downdraft, but in doing so it is working on a possible bear-flag on the 4-hr chart. Price needs to drop below the lower parallel to validate it, first. For even more confirmation, a closing candle below the most recent swing-low at 10980 is preferred before looking for another swing lower.

Gold price hanging on August t-line

Gold price is in a precarious spot with it back at the August trend-line. It’s to be trusted as support until broken, but trust is wearing thin. A break below will have the double-bottoms at 1266 in focus, followed by the 200-day at 1257. The thinking is this, whether we first see a bounce or not gold will likely trade lower at some point soon.
