EURUSD, GBPUSD negative pressure at the beginning of the working week
Looking at the four-hour time frame chart, we see that the EURUSD pair encountered resistance at 50.0% Fibonacci level at 1.17850 and MA200 moving average. After that, we have a drag towards the lower levels on the chart. The pair broke 61.8% Fibonacci level and 78.6% Fibonacci level at 1.17160. We currently have little support at the current level, and we can expect a shorter recovery towards the top of the break at a 61.8% level. If EURUSD manages to continue above this level, our next resistance is moving averages in the area of 1.17500-1.18000. Only a break above this resistance zone can direct us to the further continuation to the bullish side. We expect further negative consolidation for the bearish sequel, which may bring us down to support at the previous low at 1.16200.
GBPUSD chart analysis
Looking at the chart on the four-hour time frame, we see that the pair is under a lot of pressure, dropping from last week’s 1.39000 to today’s 1.36720. If the pair continues on the bearish side, we look for the first support in the zone of the previous low at 1.36000. The dollar continued to rise, continuing a positive series of gains from last Friday. We first need a positive consolidation for the bullish trend that will reverse the current situation and direct the pair towards higher levels on the chart.
