EURUSD, GBPUSD, NZDUSD start of the week for new winnings
Looking at the EURUSD chart on the daily time frame, we see that the pair consolidates around 1.16000 on the third day. We are currently testing a 20-day moving average, and we need a break above to proceed to the next resistance zone 1.16500-1.17000. We are still moving in a falling channel, and the positive consolidation brings us to the upper resistance line, where a 50-day moving average awaits us. For the bearish trend, we need further negative consolidation that will direct EURUSD towards the previous low at 1.15250. A break below this support opens up new lows this year.
GBPUSD chart analysis
Looking at the GBPUSD chart on the daily time frame, we see that the pair managed to climb to 38.2% Fibonacci levels at 1.37300. Today we are currently consolidating at 1.37400. We received additional support in the 50-day moving average by moving to this zone, and it was approaching the upper downward trend line. Here we can expect some resistance that may prevent us from continuing the bullish trend. If we pass to climb above and visit the 50.0% Fibonacci level at 1,38300, up there, a 200-day moving average awaits us. For the bearish scenario, we need a negative consolidation, which would direct GBPUSD towards a 23.6% Fibonacci level at 1.36000. The break below us leads to the previous low at 1.34100.
NZDUSD chart analysis
Looking at the NZDUSD chart on the daily time frame, we see that the pair has reached the 68.1% -78.6% Fibonacci level zone, the site of previous resistances in this larger declining consolidation. We can now expect to see a new pullback to 50.0% Fibonacci levels at 0.70100, where a 50-day moving average awaits us, further below at 38.2% Fibonacci level with support with a 20-day moving average at 0.69777. For the bullish option, we need a break above this resistance zone to visit the previous high at 0.71700.
