EUR/USD Current price: 1.3513View Live Chart for the EUR/USD
The EUR/USD is maintaining some short-term bearish momentum that can be seen in the 1H chart, but remains bullish in the in the daily chart. It is squaring up ahead of tomorrow's ECB meeting. A short-term bearish market even after the risk event is still in the context of a correction, but a break below 1.3170, which would clear some key rising trendlines, would usher in a bearish outlook. Otherwise, beware of the market buying on a dip, with a push above 1.3710 signaling bullish continuation toward the 1.3830 area.

GBP/USD Current price: 1.5650View Live Chart for the GBP/USD (Select the currency)
GBP/USD is holding tight during the 2/6 session, possibly with the market anticipating tomorrow's BoE meeting, and clues regarding its QE prospect. A return back above 1.5820 should neutralize recent bearish outlook, with a break above 1.59 giving way to some bullish outlook with focus back toward the 1.63 handle, although the 1.60 psychological level is also a key level to monitor. Otherwise, downside risk remains toward the 1.55 area.
