GBP/USD extends its losses for the second consecutive day, depreciating to near 1.2620 during the Asian session on Wednesday. The pair could test the 1.2600 level. If this level is breached, it could prompt the pair to revisit March’s low at 1.2575.


USD/JPY is correcting sharply from three-decade highs just shy of 152.00 in Asian trading on Wednesday. Dovish BoJ commentary drove USD/JPY to fresh multi-decade highs but Japan’s Finance Minister’s verbal intervention triggered the latest leg down in the pair.

USD/CAD halts its two-day losing streak, edging higher to near 1.3590 during the Asian session on Wednesday. The US Dollar (USD) is exhibiting strength, while lower Crude oil prices are contributing to downward pressure on the Canadian Dollar (CAD). This dynamic is bolstering the USD/CAD pair.
