The Greenback Mixed in Europe: EURUSD Stays Bearish, GBPUSD Firm

Technical Analysis

The US Dollar has stayed strong across the major G7 currencies over the past 2-3 weeks, with EURUSD losses from mid-May seeing a weaker tone for the Euro versus the Greenback since the break below 1.1142 (as we have highlighted here previously)!

Conversely and despite uncertainty around the “Brexit” vote,, Cable (GBPUSD), continues to defend support levels on setback and probe up through resistances, to maintain an underlying basing structure and bullish tone through late May and now like into early June.


A fading rebound effort Thursday stalling ahead of 1.1227/43 resistances encouraged the plunge lower Friday to a new setback low through 1.1127 to leave a negative bias for Monday.

Furthermore, the previous break down through 1.1142 support produced an intermediate-term bearish shift.

For Monday/Tuesday:

  • We see a downside bias for 1.1105/00; break here aims for 1.1055.
  • But above 1.1148 aims for 1.1200/17, which we would look to try to cap.

Short/ Intermediate-term Outlook – Downside Risks:

  • We see a negative tone with the bearish threat to 1.1055.
  • Below here targets 1.0823/21 and 1.0777/08.

What Changes This? Above 1.1349 signals a neutral tone, only shifting positive above 1.1447.

For Monday/Tuesday:

  • We see an upside bias for 1.4689; break here aims for 1.4740 and 1.4770.
