EURUSD chart analysis
Yesterday, the Euro failed to recover above the 1.00000 level, and we saw another pullback below. Today’s low is at the 0.99500 level, where we find immediate support. The Euro is once again coming back to the 1.00000 level and trying to break through that barrier and move away from the critical zone. The dollar index is stable, and there are no indications of a potential fall. For a bullish option, we need to move above and stay there. After that, a new bullish consolidation could happen, which would move us towards the 1.00500 level. A potential higher target is the 1.01000 level. We need negative consolidation, retest, and break below the 0.99500 level for the bearish option. After that, the pair could continue to pull back to the next lower support zone. Potential lower targets are 0.99000 and 0.98500 levels.
GBPUSD chart analysis
The pound recovery stopped at the 1.15800 level yesterday, after which we see a pullback to support at the 1.15000 level. A new push to this level could create a break below and push the pound even lower. For a bearish option, we need a continuation of the negative consolidation. Potential lower support targets are 1.14500 and 1.14000 levels. If we find support here, pair b could start a new bullish recovery. With a positive consolidation, we must first climb to the 1.15500 level. Additional resistances at that point are in the MA50 and MA200 moving averages. A break above could push the foot to the 1.16000 resistance level. And potential higher targets are 1.16500 and 1.17000 levels.
