DAILY TECHNICAL ANALYSIS FOR JUNE 26, 2023petar skakalov
Current level – 1.0911
The rebound from the psychological level at 1.1000 led to a strong sell-off towards the key support at 1.0850 where the bulls managed to take control and recover part of the losses. A corrective move is currently taking place and the pair is headed towards a test of the resistance at 1.0900. In case this level resists the bulls’ pressure, it is highly possible to witness a resumption of the downtrend and EUR/USD to head towards the support at 1.0850. Only а confirmed breach of this level would strengthen the negative expectations and pave the way for EUR/USD towards the next key support at 1.0800. In the upward direction, if the bulls manage to violate the resistance at 1.0950, their next target would be the resistance at 1.0950. It seems that this week will be calm in terms of macroeconomic news, with the only news that could potentially influence the currency pair being the U.S. initial jobless claims data that will be announced on Thursday at 12:30 GMT.
Current level – 143.52
The buyers could not gain enough momentum to overcome the resistance at 143.85 and the pair is currently headed towards a test of the local support at 143.15. The forecast is for a deeper correction to take place, which scenario may be realised only after a confirmed breach of the mentioned support, with a next target for the sellers being the support at 142.23. The alternative scenario is for the bulls to regain control and violate the resistance at 143.85. In this case it is highly likely for the uptrend to resume and the pair to head towards the resistance at 145.00, considering the overall positive market sentiment.
Current level – 1.2728
Today’s trading session began in favour of the sterling with the pair rebounding from the support at 1.2700. At the time of writing this analysis, GBP/USD is headed towards a test of the resistance at 1.2765. A consolidation in the range 1.2670 – 1.2765 is a highly possible scenario for today’s trading session. Only a confirmed breach of the resistance at 1.2765 would pave the way for the pair towards the next key level at 1.2830. In the downward direction, if the bears prevail and manage to violate the support at 1.2670, we may witness a downward movement towards a test of the support at 1.2600.
