EUR/USD: Monthly Pivot Resisting

The EUR/USD pair has moved out of its range. It is consolidating at its current level where the monthly pivot is providing resistance. A decisive break above the 1.3067 highs would be required for a continuation of the rally higher, with the 50-day at 1.3150 providing the next target up and 1.3220 another eventual possible target. Downside is limited by support at 1.2950-60, which if broken could lead to a move down to the 200-day MA at 1.2880.

GBP/USD: Expanding Triangle

The GBP/USD pair continues to climb. It has broken out of an expanding triangle, signaling a probable move higher, to an eventual target at 1.5470, however, the monthly pivot as well as the 50-day MA at the current highs are capping gains, and this could make further upside more difficult. We would have to see a break above 1.5365 ideally for bullish confirmation, and it is possibly the pair may simply continue sideways for a while. Support at 1.5235 is preventing more downside, but a break below that could see a resumption of the down-trend to the 1.5115 level.
