DAILY TECHNICAL ANALYSIS FOR SEPTEMBER 08, 2022petar skakalov
Current level – 0.9991
The single European currency recovered some of its recent losses against the dollar and the price breached the resistance at 0.9985. If the bullish attack continues, then a successful violation on the next target at 1.0046, followed by a breach of the important zone at 1.0088, could easily continue the recovery and strengthen the positive expectations for the future path of the pair. If the bears prevail and manage to violate the zone at 0.9985, which is now acting as support, then they could easily lead the EUR/USD towards a test of the lower level at 0.9916. Important news for investors today will be the expected European Central Bank interest rate decision at 12:15 GMT, as well as the data оn the U.S. initial jobless claims later at 12:30 GMT.
Current level – 144.24
The historic appreciation of the dollar against the yen continued yesterday, and after the test of the important zone at 144.94, the price consolidated around the current level of 144.24. If the positive sentiment remains unchanged, then a new attack on the high at 145.00 could be the most probable scenario. A successful breach here could easily lead to new gains and could head the USD/JPY towards levels at around 146.60. The first support for the bears could be found at 143.05. A potential deeper correction is expected to remain limited to 140.64.
Current level – 1.1509
The bearish momentum faded, and after the unsuccessful test of the low at 1.1441, the Cable appreciated. During the early hours of today`s trading, the price is hovering above the zone at 1.1497, and if the bulls prevail, then a successful attempt for a violation of the higher resistance at 1.1600 could easily head the pair towards the local high at 1.1711 and could lead to a change in the current sentiment of the market participants. If the bears instead re-enter the market, their first target would be the mentioned level at 1.1497. A breach of the lower zone at 1.1441 could mark the current move as corrective and could lead to a continuation of the pound sell-off against the dollar.
