EURUSD and GBPUSD still trying to reduce losses
Looking at the chart on the four-hour time frame, we see that the EURUSD pair found support at 1.17000 and climbed to the MA20 moving average at the current 1.17330. For further continuation, we need a break above this resistance and 61.8% Fibonacci level at 1.17570; after that, higher resistance awaits us in the zone at 50.0% Fibonacci level at 1.17860. The above additional resistance is created by the upper trend line, MA50 and MA200 moving averages, redirecting the pair to the bearish scenario. Then again, we will test the previous low at 1.17000.
GBPUSD chart analysis
Looking at the chart on the four-hour time frame, we see that the GBPUSD pair dropped to 1.36400 yesterday, and after that, we have the current pullback to the current 1.36816. We are now testing the 23.6% Fibonacci level at 1.37000, and to continue on the bullish side, we need a break above, and only after that is there a chance that we will climb to the next 38.2% Fibonacci level at 1.37500. What we can still notice is that the concentration of moving averages in the zone is around 50.0% Fibonacci level at 1.37920.
