GBP/USD: Approaching the resistance at 1.6340

• GBP/USD is getting closer to its resistance at 1.6340 (05/09/2014 high), despite yesterday’s break of the hourly support at 1.6186 (11/09/2014 low). Another resistance stands at 1.6497. An hourly support now lies at 1.6162 (16/09/2014 low).

• In the longer term, prices have collapsed after having reached 4-year highs. The break of the key support at 1.6220 confirms persistent selling pressures and opens the way for further decline towards the strong support at 1.5855 (12/11/2013 low). A key resistance now stands at 1.6644.


GBP/JPY: Yesterday’s bullish reversal suggests persistent buying interest

• GBP/JPY made a bullish intraday reversal yesterday, indicating persistent buying interest despite the recent overextended rise. Monitor the key resistance at 175.37. A support area lies between 172.99 (16/09/2014 low) and 172.78.

• In the long-term, the break of the major resistance at 163.09 (07/08/2009 high) calls for further strength towards the resistance at 179.17 (15/08/2002 low). A decisive break of the strong support at 169.51 (11/04/2014 low) is needed to invalidate this scenario.
