EUR/USD: Trend-Line Still Supporting

The EUR/USD exchange rate is trading slightly above the July '12 trend-line. The thick band of resistance at 1.2980 including the 50-day MA is preventing further upside. A decisive break above 1.3000 would be necessary to trigger a stronger move higher to the 1.3170 highs. It's looking less likely the trend-line will break and we will get a bearish drive lower, but a move below 1.2795 would open up a downside target of 1.2580. Today is a holiday in the U.S and U.K so market volumes and volatility are likely to remain low.

GBP/USD: Bouncing Within a Down-Trend

The GBP/USD pair has fallen bearishly to a target from its channel breakdown and support at the recent lows. Now it has bounced and broken above a down-sloping trend-line, generating an upside target at 1.5290, which is also in the region of the support line of the box-congestion zone on the weekly chart. The monthly pivot at 1.5190 could also resist further upside. After the bounce has finished the strong down-trend is expected to resume eventually until it reaches the 1.4825 level at the recent lows and then possibly eventually the target down for the box breakout at 1.4225.
