Forex4you Technical Analysis 15 Feb 2011

EUR/USD: Technical Analysis

The "bears" breached support range 1.3540 – 1.3500, but they were held back by another key support at level  1.3450/60 -1.3400. Having reached level 1.3420/30, the price returned to growth and it's currently making attempts to rise up to 1.3540/30. Indicators are changing their readings, which gives reasons to reconsider our expectations of further decline. Fixation above 1.3540 may indicate a possible reversal to growth. The final sign for the reversal upwards will be observed if the price returns to the uptrend channel sector (blue lines ). The present growth, however, can be considered as a correction within a down trend, so there is a chance that decline will recommence. Sideways consolidation within the range 1.3540/50 – 1.3460/50 is also a possibility. It's also worth noting, that the price has already been below level 1.3450, which somehow gives more reasons to expect the "bearish" trend to be dominating.



GBP/USD: Technical analysis

The "bulls" failed to raise the price above level 1.6060, so the trading is carried on within the range 1.6060 – 1.5980/90. Indicators don't show any particular direction, which makes the picture rather unclear. In this case, we should postpone our final decision until the price either retraces up and holds above level 1.6060/70 indicating further growth to 1.6330 – 1.6300, or holds below level 1.5990/80, giving reasons to expect the key support at level 1.5750/40 to be tested in the near future.
