EUR/USD - Descending Triangle Pattern, Wait for Breakout

The single currency Euro hasn't changed much against the U.S. dollar as investors await ECB policy decision this week. The European Central bank is scheduled to meet on Thursday, and traders will actively look to understand what policymakers might do.

The odds of aggressive easing have been raising considering the series of weak economic data from the Eurozone. The question is whether they will support through on what the market is looking for.

The EUR/USD pair has also gained enough support from the labor market reports. The labor market report from the United States dispensed a less than expected rise in the number of employed people in August. The unemployment rate persisted stable while average hourly earnings ticked up last month to come in ahead of forecast.

The Fiber has formed a descending triangle pattern which supporting the EUR/USD around 1.1015 along with resistance around 1.1070.

GBP/USD - Fibonacci Retracement In-Play

The GBP/USD pair jumped dramatically to place a high around 1.2385 as investors awaited for the UK GDP figures. After declining in the second quarter, the Sterling is facing pressure on the system.

GDP in the United Kingdom was even for the three months to July and expanded 0.3% every month. The British economic figures remained broadly above forecasts as manufacturing, and industrial production also hit the analyst forecast. The data appears to imply that the British economy is still stronger than expected.

Besides, the Brexit uncertainties will tend to continue dominating Sterling fluctuations. During the previous week, political developments caused volatile deviations in the GBP/USD. Prime Minister Johnson had a significant failure in Parliament as a bill enacted that effectively allows lawmakers to block a no-deal exit. Johnson seems persistent nevertheless to provide a door by October 31. Based on his fresh news, I think he will retaliate. That is the reason why the volatile swings in the currency are far from over.

The Cable is trading neutral after placing a high of around 1.2390, as investors seem to wait for a big event to drive movement. Looking at the 4-hour timeframe, the GBP/USD has formed a Doji pattern which may induce a slight bearish change in the GBP/USD.


GBP/USD - Technical Levels

Support Resistance
1.2264 1.233 1.2238
1.237 1.2171 1.2436
Pivot Point 1.2304


GBP/USD - Daily Trade Sentiment

The GBP/USD is likely to exhibit bullish trend above 1.2310, and continuation of this can extend the bullish trend until 1.2280. I will be looking to take a sell position below 1.2320 to target at least 1.22750 today.

Best wishes for the U.S. session!
