EUR/USD: The euro declined against dollar on Monday as soft economic data in China bolstered the dollar and prompted investors to sell euro. China's economic growth hit its slowest pace in a year in the third quarter, data showed on Monday, hurt by power shortages, supply chain bottlenecks and major wobbles in the property market. Dollar rose about 0.14% against the euro at 1.1580. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1616 (20DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1629(38.2%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1571(23.6%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1500 (Psychological level).
GBP/USD: The British pound steadied against the dollar on Monday after Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey sent a fresh signal that the central bank is gearing up to raise interest rates as inflation risks mount. During an online panel discussion on Sunday organised by the Group of 30 consultative group, Bailey said the BoE will “have to act” in its monetary policy meetings on the risk of medium term inflation.He continued to believe that the recent jump in inflation would be temporary, but that a surge in energy prices would push it higher and make its climb last longer. Investors were awaiting CPI September inflation data for Britain due on Wednesday. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3761(50%fib),an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3848(61.8%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3678(38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3615(20DMA).
USD/CHF: The dollar strengthened against Swiss franc on Monday as soft economic data in China and climbing oil prices jangled investors' nerves that inflation will drive interest rates higher. China's economic growth hit its slowest pace in a year in the third quarter, data showed on Monday, with power shortages crimping factory output - while in commodities, crude prices rose more than 1% to test 2018 highs. Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9273(23.6%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 0.9309 (Oct 13th high).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9225(38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9188(50%fib).
USD/JPY: The dollar rose against yen on Monday after data showed slower-than-expected growth in China’s economy last quarter and surging oil prices fed inflation concerns. China’s gross domestic product grew 4.9% in the July-September quarter from a year earlier, its weakest pace since the third quarter of 2020. The world’s second-largest economy is grappling with power shortages, supply bottlenecks, sporadic COVID-19 outbreaks and debt problems in its property sector. The dollar index rose 0.1% to 94.102, edging it back toward last week's one-year high of 94.563.The dollar was last trading against yen at 114.35. Strong resistance can be seen at 114.55(23.6%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 115.00(Psychological level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 113.95(38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 113.50(50%fib).
