Both Euro and GBP end the week on a positive note.

Euro/USD: The Euro continued its short term recovery today and after consolidating throughout the morning session between 1.2900 and 1.2940 values broke decisively to the upside. This saw values accelerate to a peak of 1.3029 before finishing in and around the 1.2997 region.

GBP/USD: The GBP burst into life in the afternoon following a relatively quiet morning’s trading between resistance at 1.5243 and support in the 1.5200 area. As values burst through this upper boundary the market accelerated to a peak in the 1.5327 region prior to finally closing in and around 1.5304.

Euro/JPY: The Euro remained steady against the JPY today and despite early strength being restricted by resistance in the 12560 area pullbacks proved limited with willing buyers being uncovered in the 12387 region. The market bounced once more with the European day coming to a conclusion in and around 12523.

GBP/Euro: A really quiet sideways and consolidatory session was experienced as the GBP and Euro basically tracked each other closely effectively keeping prices trapped between support at 1.1737 and resistance in the 1.1799 area. The European trading week finally closed in and around the 1.1767 region.

Euro and GBP both benefit from extreme JPY weakness.

Euro/USD: The Euro experienced a choppy two way market action today and after initially drifting lower towards 1.2783 prices then became rather agitated. Bounces found sellers again at 1.2837 forcing values to a low point of 1.2745 from where a strong recovery then began, seeing the market storm to a peak of 1.2882 before finally closing in and around 1.2861.

GBP/USD: The GBP experienced a day of clearly two halves with the morning session seeing values weaken from an opening of 1.5137 to a low point of 1.5033. However at this point the buyers returned and the second part of the European day witnessed a strong recovery with a peak of 1.5201 being established right on the close.

Euro/JPY: Extreme JPY weakness today saw the Euro benefit enormously and from an opening in the 11939 area values stormed higher throughout the balance of the European session. While a little resistance was encountered at 12222 this was eventually breached and peaks for the day established at 12395. Prices finally closed only marginally beneath here at 12368.

GBP/Euro: After opening in the 1.1782 area the GBP initially slipped a little but only as far as 1.1735 where fresh buying interest was then stimulated. This forced values steadily higher throughout the balance of the session with peaks for the day being secured at 1.1856. Book squaring/profit taking then trimmed gains with the market finally closing in and around the 1.1818 region.

Euro recovers some lost ground in the afternoon.

Euro/USD: After opening in the 1.2818 area the Euro initially fell away but only as far as the 1.2790 zone where good buying re-emerged and during the balance of the session prices rebounded impressively to make a peak of 1.2864 prior to finally closing in and around the 1.2845 region.

GBP/USD: The GBP recovered some lost ground today and after early weakness found good support in the 1.5075 area values improved throughout the balance of the European session. Highs for the day were established in the 1.5158 region prior to profit taking trimming gains on the close to finish around 1.5142.

Euro/JPY: The Euro lost a little ground against the JPY today but in a rather volatile session which saw prices swing in both directions during the course of the day. Initial downward pressure uncovered willing buyers around the 11945 area from where the market sprang higher impressively towards 12019 although these gains proved short lived. The balance of the day saw values slip away with a test of 11919 being staged on the close.

GBP/Euro: A rather boring sideways performance from this pairing today which saw values restricted between the confines of resistance at 1.1809 and support in the 1.1770 zone. The European session finally closed in and around the 1.1790 area.

GBP loses ground while Euro consolidates once more.

Recent Euro losses continued to be digested today and while early rally attempts ran into strong overhead resistance in the 1.2878 area from where values slipped a little during the balance of the day. However this proved rather muted with support being uncovered in the 1.2812 zone with the market finally closing just above here in the 1.2834 zone.

GBP/USD: The GBP lost ground against the USD today and after early rally attempts were thwarted by resistance in the 1.5258 area values slipped away steadily during the balance of the European session. Support finally emerged in the 1.5112 region although prices closed only marginally above here in and around the 1.5118 zone.

Euro/JPY: The Euro basically spent the day consolidating against the JPY today and after early weakness was well supported in the 11914 area values bounced but only as far as 12016 where resistance capped the rally. This choppy session finally came to a close in the 12000 region.

GBP/Euro: The GBP lost ground against the Euro today and after early rally attempts were capped by resistance in the 1.1870 area the market headed south during the balance of the session. Lows for the day were established right on the close in and around the 1.1772 zone.

Euro/JPY: The market consolidated during the morning with initial strength being restricted by resistance at 12078 which forced prices to retreat towards 11976. However, the buyers returned at this point and the market improved to make a peak for the session at 12096 ahead of finally closing in and around the 12064 region.

GBP/Euro: A day of two halves that witnessed GBP strength in the morning that ran into strong selling in the 1.1884 area. This reversed fortunes and values slipped away with little support being uncovered until the 1.1798 zone. The European day finally closed in and around the 1.1835 region.

Euro remains under pressure as further layers of key support are breached.

Euro/USD: The Euro came under serious downward pressure today and while the early morning saw prices consolidate just above key support around 1.2818 once this was decisively broken values accelerated to a low point of 1.2751 prior to fresh buying being stimulated. This weak European session finally came to a close in and around the 1.2782 region.

GBP/USD: The GBP weakness of the past few days continued and after early strength met strong resistance in the 1.5182 area values slipped southwards for the balance of the session. Support finally re-emerged in the 1.5093 zone where some light short covering lifted the market a little to close the European day in and around the 1.5117 region.

Euro/JPY: After consolidating for a short period around the opening levels of 12162 the Euro came under fresh downward pressure and as supports gave way the market headed quickly towards 11995 ahead of renewed buying being uncovered. Some light book squaring then saw prices lift a little to close in the 12068 region.

GBP/Euro: The GBP resumed its recovery phase against the Euro today and from an opening in the 1.1788 area values worked steadily higher for the balance of the session to record a peak of 1.1847 ahead of finally closing in and around the 1.1830 region.
