Consolidation time again as another week gets underway
After last week's fun and games we've seen US$ demand generally prevailing but failing to break into new ranges so far.
GBPUSD has held 1.3200 but couldn't break back above 1.3280-00 and currently in retreat this morning.Immediate support/buying again now into 1.3220 and 1.3200,then 1.3185 and 1.3150-60. Sellers into 1.3280 and 1.3300 then 1.3350 and 1.3380-00. Keep selling those rallies for the moment.
EURGBP has been down to test 0.872-30 support again (GBPEUR up to 1.1465) only to fail on a rally back into 0.8760 so far. More buyers poised at 0.8700 then 0.8680-05. Sellers still between 0.8750-60 again then 0.8780-00. Overall the Pound remains delicately poised with Brexit and UK government turmoil never far from the headlines.
EURUSD has consolidated after Thursday's tumble post-ECB but rallies still being sold helped by the general US$ buying. Some dip demand currently around 1.1550 then 1.1530 and 1.1480-00 with barrier option support expected again. Sellers around 1.1600-10 then 1.1630 and 1.1650.
USDJPY remains underpinned above 110.00 but once again failing to breach 111.00. Buyers now around 110.30 then 110.00 and 109.80 and 109.50. Sellers still between 110.80-00 with large interest also into a barrier option at 111.50. USDCHF also remains underpinned but rallies still failing to break 1.0000 with buying tempered by some EURCHF sell interest once again.
The Aussie, NZ and Canadian $ have all fallen amid the US$ demand.AUDUSD now has buyers at 0.7420 and 0.7400.Sellers at 0.7460 then 0.7480 and 0.7500. USDCAD buyers now around 1.3160 then 1.3130 and 1.3100. Sellers around 1.3200 then 1.3220 and 1.3250
