EURUSD, GBPUSD attempt for smaller winnings
Following the chart, on the four-hour time frame, we see that the EURUSD pair encountered resistance at 1.13500. We are now consolidating in the zone 1.13000-1.13500, and we need further support in MA20 and MA50 to continue towards the next bullish resistances on the chart. The main bullish target on this time frame is 1.150000.
- We need positive consolidation and a break above 1.13500. Only then can we expect the pair to continue up.
- The first up resistance is at 1.14000 level, and the next at 1.14500 zone of previous bearish consolidation.
- In zone 1.14750, we encounter the MA200 moving average before visiting the 1.15000 level.
- We need a negative consolidation below 1.13000 and the MA20 moving average.
- A breakout below leads us to the first support at 1.12500 and MA50 moving average.
- If the pair continues to weaken, our next support zone is this year’s minimum, around 1.12000.
GBPUSD chart analysis
For now, the pound is detaching from this year’s low at 1.31941, moving to the current 1.33210. We are currently looking to see if the GBUPSD pair will break above the 1.33500 and MA50 moving averages to strengthen the support zone further and establish a new path to bullish targets.
- We need support at 1.33000, and with positive consolidation to climb above 1.35000 and MA50 moving average.
- After that, we can expect the pair to climb to the resistance zone around 1.34000.
- If we see a further break above the next resistance zone, they are at 1.34500 and 1.35000.
- We need negative consolidation and withdrawal of the pair below 1.33000.
- Then we look at the support in the zone around 1.32500, and if it doesn’t last, we will test this year’s minimum again at 1.31941.
