Intraday Market Analysis – GBP struggles for support

0 427

EURGBP breaks key resistance

The pound tumbles as the UK’s August retail data disappoint. The buying pressure has been building up under June’s peak at 0.8720. The breakout prompted the last sellers to cover. As the euro’s rally gains momentum, this could open the door for a sustained climb towards 0.8900, which is a supply area from January 2021’s sell-off. 0.8800 is the intermediate resistance ahead. The RSI’s overbought situation could temporarily trim the buying and 0.8700 would be the first support in case the euro takes a breather.

AUDJPY seeks support

The Australian dollar softens as investors shun risk assets. The pair is looking to hold onto its recent gains after rallying above June’s high at 96.60. However, short-term price action may struggle as there is no sign of committed buying yet. A break below 96.70 has forced leveraged buyers to bail out. The daily support and psychological level of 95.00 is a major area to gauge buying interest. A bounce will need to lift 96.40 before it could take hold. Failing that, a bearish breakout would deepen the correction below 94.00.

GER 40 tests critical floor

The Dax 40 slips as high interest rates prompt investors to take refuge in cash. After hitting the supply zone around 13500, the index has given up all gains from this month’s rally. This is a strong indication of the prevailing bearish bias. 12610 is the next support and its breach would bring the index back to the critical level of 12420. Then a bearish breakout may cause the remaining bulls to abandon the ship, resuming the downtrend towards 11900 in the medium-term. 12900 is a fresh resistance in case of a bounce.
