Currency Summaries

EUR/USD: The euro dipped against dollar on Friday as growing doubts over Eurozone economic recovery from the coronavirus crisis overshadowed weaker dollar. The euro zone’s economy recorded its deepest contraction on record in the second quarter, preliminary estimates showed on Friday. In the months from April to June, gross domestic product in the 19-country currency bloc shrank by 12.1% from the previous quarter.Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1807 (38.2% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1922 (23.6%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1708 (50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1653 (11 DMA).

GBP/USD: The pound strengthened against dollar on Friday as a broad-based dollar decline fuelled demand for the British currency. But concerns of a second wave of infections, a weak economy and growing pressure to strike a Brexit trade deal before a transition period ends in December are prompting investors to become wary of the currency’s prospects in coming months. The pound rose hit high at $1.3159, its highest level since early March. It was last trading at 1.3083. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3185 (23.6% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3249 (31st Dec 2019 high).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3068 (Daily low), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2968 (38.2%fib).

USD/CAD :The Canadian dollar strengthened against its U.S. counterpart on Friday to notch its fourth straight monthly gain, its longest winning run in six years, as domestic data showed the economy expanded more than expected in May.The gain for the loonie on Friday follows a decline in recent days. As the end of the month approaches, some market players tend to rebalance their currency hedges. The loonie has benefited in July from a weakening of the U.S. dollar, as coronavirus cases climbed in the United States, and from higher prices for oil, one of Canada's major exports. On Friday, the loonie was trading 0.3% higher at 1.3377 to the greenback. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3424 (23.6%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3493 (21 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3274 (5DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3200 (Psychological level).

USD/JPY: The dollar strengthened against the Japanese yen on Friday as investors covered shorts and took profits after sharp decline in the currency pair. The dollar mostly held gains against Japanese yen after data showed U.S. inflation-adjusted consumer spending has pulled out of April’s deep hole but remains below its pre-pandemic level, and the currency strengthened as the session wore on. At (GMT 22:15), greenback was up 0.41% versus the Japanese yen to 105.85.  Strong resistance can be seen at 106.31 (50% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 107.00(Psychological level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 106.40 (38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 104.16 (23.6% fib).
