EUR/USD: Technical Analysis

Little changed in the structure, the price is consolidating in a sideways range, although it did manage to test a new local maximum at level 1.3755, which gives more reasons to expect the "bulls" to continue their trend and even reach target 1.3780/1.3800.  Indicators show, that the "bullish" potential is weakening, suggesting a large-scale pullback downwards, as soon as the above mentioned level is tested. A decline below support level 1.3440/00 will be the first sign for the "bearish" trend. A serious signal to the change of moods would be support 1.3540/00 breakout. If resistance 1.3780/1.3800 is breached and the price holds above, we'll be expecting a stop at level 1.3860/50.



GBP/USD: Technical Analysis

Recent forecast that the "bulls" may not be able to rise above the range 1.5960-1.5930 turned out to be correct. The price failed to hold above this barrier, so it pulled back lower. The price met support at the uptrend channel line (blue lines) and it's currently consolidating at 1.5880/90. Indicators are turned up, so the "bullish" trend is likely to continue. Besides, the "bearish" attempts to breach the uptrend channel line fail, which makes further up trend even more of a possibility. To be sure, that growth to 1.6270/60 will take place, resistance 1.6060/70 should be breached first. But to make it happen, the price has to rise above 1.5960-1.5930. If the price breaches and holds below support 1.5750/40, we'll be expecting a down trend to commence.
