Currency Summaries

EUR/USD: The euro declined against the U.S. dollar on Wednsday, as global recession fears grew, with the U.S. Treasury yield curve inverting for the first time since 2007 and Germany reporting that its economy had shrunk in the second quarter. The yield curve is closely watched for recession signals. The last time it inverted was during the U.S. sub-prime-mortgage crunch that set off the global financial crisis. Germany’s gross domestic product fell 0.1% quarter-on- quarter after growing 0.4% in the first quarter, the latest sign that world trade disputes are damaging Europe’s biggest economy. The euro was down 0.34 percent at $1.1133.An index that tracks the dollar versus a basket of six major currencies was up 0.21 at 98.04.Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1178(38.2% retracement level), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1236 (Dec 10th high).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1131 (Daily low), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1100 (Psychological level).

GBP/USD:The pound edged higher against dollar on Wednesday after inflation picked up in July, but the currency held within sight of a two-and-a-half year low as brewing concerns about a no-deal Brexit weighed on investor sentiment.The consumer price index rose 2.1% year-on-year in July from 2% in June, above a Reuters poll forecast of a 1.9% increase. The Bank of England’s inflation target is 2%. The pound was up 0.1% at $1.2074, above a low of $1.2015 hit on Monday, its weakest since January 2017. Versus the euro, the British currency was ahead slightly at 92.615 pence. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2105 (9DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2247(21 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2016 (Daily low), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2100 (Psychological level).

USD/CAD: The Canadian dollar weakened to a one-week low against its U.S. counterpart on Wednesday as oil prices dropped and investors worried about the global growth outlook. Oil prices fell on weak economic data from China and Europe and a rise in U.S. crude inventories. U.S. crude  prices were down 3.56% at $55.03 a barrel.China reported weaker-than-expected economic data for July, including a surprise drop in industrial output growth to a more than 17-year low, while a slump in exports sent Germany’s economy into reverse in the second quarter. The Canadian dollar   was trading 0.6% lower at 1.3304 to the greenback, or 75.17 U.S. cents.Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3328 (Daily high), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3400 (Psychological level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3244 (9 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3179 (21 DMA).

USD/JPY: The dollar weakened against the Japanese yen on Wednesday, after the U.S. Treasury bond yield curve inverted for the first time since 2007 and investors, gripped by fear of a looming global recession, fled to the safety of perceived safe-haven assets. On Tuesday, the dollar jumped versus the yen after U.S. President Donald Trump backed off his Sept. 1 deadline for imposing 10% tariffs on remaining Chinese imports, delaying duties on cellphones, laptops and other consumer goods.Those gains were reversed overnight, however, as skepticism about the progress began to weigh.The dollar was 0.70 percent  lower versus the Japanese yen at 105.98. Strong resistance can be seen at 105.60 (11 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 106.98 (50 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 105.09 (50 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 105.00 (Psychological level).
