EUR And GBP: Bearish Bias Persists

Dear Traders,

The euro traded within a 50-pip range between 1.1750 and 1.17 but despite that limited price range we were able to book a good profit with our daily long signal. Looking ahead, there are no major economic reports out of the eurozone in the next days, which is why we keep tabs on the technical picture in the EUR/USD. As long as the euro remains below 1.1790 and 1.1830, we favor a bearish stance in this pair.

The pound sterling rose to a high of 1.3422 after U.K. retail sales came in better-than-expected. However, that report was not enough to trigger a sustained recovery in the pound given that rate hike expectations are unchanged. Thus, the risk remains tilted to the downside.

With the GBP/USD trading below 1.34 and more importantly below 1.3430, the cable maintains its bearish bias, suggesting that sterling prices may continue to fall. We will wait for price breaks below 1.3360 and 1.3340 to anticipate further losses. Lower targets are seen at 1.33 and 1.3270.

Today, traders will watch the U.K. GDP report at 8:30 UTC and U.S. Durable Goods Orders at 12:30 UTC.

We wish you a beautiful weekend or long-weekend for those who have a holiday on Monday.
