EUR/USD Current price: 1.3286View Live Chart for the EUR/USD
The EUR/USD cheerful ride extended today to 1.3307, as positive news continue to flood feeds: Greece has been upgraded for a change, Spanish PM Rajoy says the country does not need bailout, peripheral yields are down, and US housing starts continue improving. Stocks are strongly up, while gold gets smashed, sold in behalf of high yielders, and dollar and yen fall across the board. The EUR/USD however, may see some limited bearish correction, more on profit taking and extreme readings rather than anything else. The hourly chart shows indicators exhausted to the upside, while 20 SMA offers dynamic short term support around 1.3240, immediate support. In the 4 hours chart the upward momentum remains quite strong suggesting counter trend movements are meant to be limited.
Support levels: 1.3240 1.3210 1.3185
Resistance levels: 1.3315 1.3350 1.3385
GBP/USD Current price: 1.6278View Live Chart for the GBP/USD (select the currency)
The GBP/USD reached 1.6305, couple pips shy of the year high before starting a retracement that approaches 1.6270 immediate support as per former weekly high. The hourly chart shows indicators accelerating lower from overbought levels and price challenging 20 SMA, yet unless a clear break and follow trough below mentioned support, the downside is still limited. For the ones thinking on a probable double roof at today’s high, remember the figure won’t be complete unless a break of the neckline, which stands at 1.5826, November 15th daily low. Too early to even start to think about it.
