e

Not a good day in Europe, as both Central Banks, the BOE and the ECB, came with a dovish stance that sent local currencies strongly down against their American rival. The EUR/USD fell down to 1.2883 so far, finding as expected some buying interest around the strong static support level, yet unable so far to regain ground beyond 1.2920, former low and immediate resistance. With the US market closed on holiday, there’s a chance we lack volume enough to trigger another strong rally, but the downside remains favored with a break to fresh lows opening doors for attest of the 1.2800 area.


Support levels: 1.2880 1.2840 1.2800 


Resistance levels: 1.2920 1.2950 1.2985

Extremely oversold in the hourly chart, the GBP/USD was hit hard for an unexpected, also dovish statement from the BOE. The pair reached a daily low of 1.5059 before managing to bounce some, still unable to recover the 1.5100 mark. The 4 hours chart shows a strong bearish momentum that supports further slides once buying interest around 1.5050 gets overcome. The key 1.50 figure should contain the downside, at least today ahead of US employment figures tomorrow.


Support levels: 1.5050 1.5010 1.4970


Resistance levels: 1.5130 1.5160 1.5200

The AUD/USD is barely changed after the news, holding near 0.9150 resistance after recovering some ground during past Asian session.

In the 4 hours chart price struggles right below 20 SMA, while indicators head higher still below their midlines: a price acceleration above 0.9150 is now required to confirm an advance up to 0.9200/20 area.

Resistance levels:  0.9150 0.9190 0.9220
