EURUSD and GBPUSD Daily Chart Analysis for Aug 5, 2021
Looking at the EURUSD on the daily time frame, we see that today, the situation is different after yesterday’s dominance of the dollar. The Euro manages to make some gains since the start of the Asian session. Support at 1.18000 has endured, and we are at the current 1.18500. If this support of the 20-day moving average continues to provide support, then we can expect a further recovery of EURUSD towards 1.19000, and our more specific target is 38.2% Fibonacci level at 1.19500. Growth above the 50-day moving average will only further support the Euro’s recovery against the dollar. For the bearish scenario, we need a break below the lower support line in the zone 1.17000-1.17500.
Like EURUSD, GBPUSD is making gains today. Today after yesterday’s price withdrawal, the Pound continues where it left off a few days earlier. Again, there is a chance to test the zone at 1.40000 and make a potential jump above closer to this year’s high of 1.42500. Conversely, if we fail to make a break above 1.40000, we go back down to the 200-day moving average to make new momentum for a new bullish momentum. Below we are looking for potential support in the zone 1.37000-1.38000.
