Trade Optimism Keeps USD Supported

The US dollar recovered from Monday’s decline, but price action was largely confined to the previous session’s range. Reports that China was willing to buy US agricultural products sent equity markets briefly higher, reflecting the risk sentiment.

However, overall, USD remains rather muted ahead of the ECB meeting. Economic data also picks up with the producer prices and CPI reports coming up later in the week.

EUR/USD Forms a Minor Double Top

The EURUSD establishes resistance near 1.1059, forming a minor double top pattern on the four-hour time frame. A breakout above this level will see the euro rising to 1.1085 as the minimum target.

A close below this support could trigger further declines.



Sterling Steady as Boris Affirms EU Pullout on October 31st

The pound held near recent highs, even as PM Boris Johnson once again reiterated his commitment to pull out of the EU on October 31st.

GBP/USD Likely to Consolidate Near Support

The currency pair retreated from recent highs on a modest pullback. However, price is yet to test the support level at 1.2320. As a result, the GBPUSD downside is limited. But a break down below this support could trigger a sharper correction in the GBPUSD currency pair. To the upside, the resistance area of 1.2533 – 1.2511 remains within reach.
