EURUSD Remains Solid, Whilst GBPUSD Stays Vulnerable

Technical Analysis

The US Dollar is mixed against European currencies, with an EURUSD resilient consolidation tone during the past week, maintaining bullish pressures from the late March/ early April.

However, lacklustre rebound efforts recently from GBPUSD, leave a bearish theme into mid-April.


An erratic tone Friday, but again, as expected another upside break to reinforce the prior push above notable 1.1376 and 1.1395 resistances, to defend 1.1308 support and to leave an upside bias for Monday.

For Monday/ Tuesday:

  • We see an upside bias for 1.1438 and 1.1455; break here aims for key 1.1495, maybe towards 1.1545
  • But below 1.1334 aims for 1.1308 and maybe opens risk down to 1.1282.

Short/ Intermediate-term Outlook – Upside Risks: A strong rally through the 10/03 ECB Meeting through 1.1157 shifted the intermediate term outlook to bullish.

  • We see a positive tone with the bullish threat to 1.1495.
  • Above here targets 1.1714 and 1.1871.

What Changes This? Below 1.1055 signals a neutral tone, only shifting negative below 1.0821.
