DAILY TECHNICAL ANALYSIS FOR APRIL 27, 2022
Current level – 1.0646
The single European currency continues to lose ground against the U.S. dollar as the breach of the 1.0704 support zone from the previous session gave additional impetus to the bears. They, in turn, without hesitation led the market towards the area of the next significant support at 1.0635 – a level last reached in March 2020. The return of the bulls will be relatively difficult with such a predominantly bearish sentiment. The first important resistance for the buyers is the 1.0757 zone, with the most likely scenario at the moment being for a consolidation around the current level. The initial jobless claims data for the United States (Thursday; 12:30 GMT), as well as the data on the consumer price index for the euro area (Friday; 09:00 GMT) could play a key role in determining the future movement of the currency pair.
Current level – 127.69
The range from the previous week was disrupted earlier this week. The bears managed to lead the market towards the support zone at 126.96, where the bulls intervened and managed to limit the sell-off. At the time of writing, the currency pair is facing a test of the resistance zone at 127.60 – an area playing the role of the lower boundary of the range between 127.60 – 128.75. A resumption of the range is not excluded if the bulls manage to overcome the mentioned zone of resistance. Investors will look forward to the bank of Japan’s interest rate decision on Thursday morning.
Current level – 1.2584
The bears continue to keep control in their hands, easily overcoming the support zone at 1.2709 during yesterday’s trading session. The deepening of the sell-off continues at the beginning of today’s trading session, and for now the bulls manage to thwart the attack in the significant support area at 1.2551. The most likely scenario is for maintaining the negative sentiment for a depreciation of the British pound against the U.S. dollar. The first significant resistance zone for the bulls is the not-so-close level of 1.2700.
Gold price is affected by the positive momentum
Gold price shows sideways trades since yesterday after reaching our waited target at 1890.00, and we believe that the recent trades are confined within bearish flag pattern that supports chances of continuing the bearish trend in the upcoming sessions, which its targets begin by breaking the mentioned level to rally towards 1850.00 as a next negative station.
Therefore, we will continue to suggest the bearish trend on the intraday and short term basis unless the price rallied to breach 1925.35 and hold above it.
The expected trading range for today is between 1875.00 support and 1920.00 resistance.
The expected trend for today: Bearish
