DAILY TECHNICAL ANALYSIS FOR APRIL 11, 2022petar skakalov
Current level – 1.0887
In the early hours of today’s trading session, the euro recovered part of its recent losses, but the bears re-entered the market and the pair quickly returned below the resistance at 1.0900. The support at 1.0850 has so far managed to hold off the bearish pressure, but the overall market sentiment remains negative. A confirmed breach of the aforementioned support level would probably extend the sell-off towards the psychological level at 1.0800, which could be considered as a signal that the downtrend is intact. In case of positive news regarding the war between Russia and Ukraine, the trend could change its direction and the bulls might return to the market. If that’s the case, then their first resistance is expected to be the level of 1.0970. The important news for this week, which is also expected to have an impact on the market, is the interest rate of the European Central Bank (Thursday; 11:45 GMT) as well as the announcement of the CPI data for the U.S. (Tuesday; 12:30 GMT).
The expected trend for today: Overall bearish
Current level – 124.52
The support at 123.70 appeared to be an obstacle for the sellers, and at the time of writing, the currency pair is headed towards a test of the critical resistance at 125.00, where a breach could easily lead the pair towards the next resistance lying at 126.00. If the bullish momentum fades and the bears enter the market and violate the zone at 123.70, then the decline could deepen towards the support level at 122.40.
The expected trend for today: Bullish
Current level – 1.3019
The sterling lost some ground against the dollar, and during the early hours of today`s trading, the pair is headed for a test of the support zone at 1.3000. A successful violation of this psychological level of support would strengthen the negative expectations for the future path of the GBP/USD for a move towards the levels at around 1.2900. If the bearish momentum fades and the bulls re-enter the market, then their first target would be the zone at 1.3100, followed by the resistance at 1.3170. However, only a successful breach of the higher level at 1.3170 would paint a more bullish picture for the Cable.
The expected trend for today: Bearish
Gold price attempts to recover
Gold price keeps rising to test the sideways range’s resistance that appears on the chart, which makes us prefer to stay aside until we get clearer signal for the next trend, which we will get through breaching 1960.00 resistance or breaking 1925.35 support, noting that the contradiction between the technical indicators provides another reason for neutrality.
Note that the continuation of the rise and breaching the mentioned resistance will push the price to achieve additional gains that reach 2000.00, while breaking the support twill reactivate the negative scenario that its next target located at 1890.00.
The expected trading range for today is between 1925.00 support and 1965.00 resistance.
The expected trend for today: Neutral
