Daily Currency Outlook: GBP/USD And EUR/USD : May 01,2018

GBP/USD Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.3720; (P) 1.3755; (R1) 1.3799;

With 1.3791 minor resistance intact, intraday bias in GBP/USD stays on the downside with focus on 1.3711 key support. Decisive break of 1.3711 key support should confirm medium term reversal. That is, whole rally from 1.1946 has completed. And deeper fall should be seen to 1.3448 fibonacci level next. On the upside, above 1.3791 minor resistance will turn intraday bias neutral and bring consolidations first, before staging another fall.

In the bigger picture, bearish pergence condition in daily MACD is raising the chance of medium term reversal. Also, note that GBP/USD has just failed to sustain above 55 month EMA (now at 1.4248) again. Focus is back on 1.3711 support. Firm break there will confirm medium term reversal and target 38.2% retracement of 1.1936 (2016 low) to 1.4376 at 1.3448 first. Break will target 61.8% retracement at 1.2874 and below. For now, sustained break of 55 month EMA is needed to confirm medium term upside momentum. Otherwise, we won’t turn bullish even in case of strong rebound.

EUR/USD Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.2049; (P) 1.2093 (R1) 1.2124;

Intraday bias in EUR/USD remains neutral and consolidation from 1.2054 temporary low could extend. In case of another rise, upside should be limited by 1.2214 support turned resistance to bring another decline. Below 1.2054 will target 161.8% projection of 1.2475 to 1.2214 from 1.2413 at 1.1991 first. Break will target 200% projection at 1.1891.

In the bigger picture, current decline and firm break of 1.2154 support confirms rejection by 38.2% retracement of 1.6039 (2008 high) to 1.0339 (2017 low) at 1.2516. A medium term top should be in place at 1.2555 and deeper decline would be seen back to 38.2% retracement of 1.0339 to 1.2555 at 1.1708 first. We’ll look at the structure and momentum of such decline before decision if it’s an impulsive or corrective move.
