GBPUSD Bear Theme, EURUSD Erratic


  • When we last reported on GBPUSD and EURUSD here on 21st June, we underscored the ongoing GBPUSD intermediate-term bear trend and the erratic range theme for EURUSD.
  • The GBPUSD Forex rate has seen a renewal of negative pressures, re-energizing the intermediate-term bear trend with a move to a new cycle low, leaving risks for lower price action in July.
  • The EURUSD currency rate, remains within an erratic, intermediate-term, broader range, defined by 1.1851 to 1.1509/07. We still see a skewed bias for a break lower.

GBPUSD Bear theme intact

A better rebound effort than expected on Friday above 1.3167 resistance, but contained below a better barrier area at 1.3225/30, sustaining downside pressures from the Wednesday-Thursday selloff through the recently set cycle ow at 1.3101/00 and to hit a 1.3069 target, keeping risk back lower Monday.

The early May plunge through 1.3710 set an intermediate-term bear trend.

For Today:

  • We see a downside bias for 13100 and 1.3049; break here aims for key supports in the 1.3040/27 area, even towards 1.3000 and 1.2967.
  • But above 1.3225/30 opens risk up to 1.3292, maybe 1.3315.

Intermediate-term Outlook – Downside Risks: We see a downside risk for 1.3040/27 and 1.3000.

  • Lower targets would be 1.2773 and 1.2587.
  • What Changes This? Above 1.3473 shifts the intermediate-term outlook from bearish straight to bullish.

Resistance and Support:

1.3225/30* 1.3292 1.3315* 1.3350 1.3391
1.3100 1.3049* 1.3040/27*** 1.3000** 1.2967
