EURUSD, GBPUSD looking for new supports on the chart
Today, the picture is totally different after yesterday’s rise above moving averages and consolidation above 23.6% Fibonacci levels. The EURUSD pair has slipped below due to a stronger dollar at the current 1.17650. We are now under pressure from moving averages from the top and expect a further descent to the previous low at 1.16640. For the bullish scenario, we need positive consolidation and a new jump above 23.6% Fibonacci levels to 1.18000. Our next target is the previous high at 38.2% Fibonacci level at 1.18940. If the EURUSD price rises above that resistance by any chance, our next target is 50.0% Fibonacci level at 1.19650, where we can expect higher resistance because we are approaching the 200-day starting average.
GBPUSD chart analysis
Looking at the chart on the daily time frame, we see that we have been moving sideways around the 200-day moving average for a week now, but with the support of the 20-day and 50-day moving average. We can also say that the GBPUSD price for the same time tests 38.2% Fibonacci level at 1.38300. To continue on the bullish side, we need a stronger break above and testing the next 50.0% Fibonacci level at 1.39000. The opposite scenario is on the bearish side, and for that, we need a negative consolidation that will direct the pair towards a 23.6% Fibonacci level at 1.37320. A break below that level leads us to new testing of pre-hog lows in the 1.36000 zone.
