EUR/USD and GBP/USD await US CPI data, EUR/GBP side-lined

Recommended Posts

EUR/USD, EUR/GBP and GBP/USD continue to be short-term side-lined ahead of key US CPI data.



EUR/USD recovers from breached resistance line, now support line

EUR/USD’s retracement from its January and early February highs at around $1.1483 did a ‘return to point of breakout’ by slipping back to the breached 2021-to-2022 downtrend line, now because of inverse polarity a support line at $1.1392, before stabilising above it.

Slightly further down the late November and December highs at $1.1386 to $1.1382 may act as additional support as well as the mid-point of Thursday’s long ‘body’ of its candle at $1.1368 ahead of today’s US consumer price index (CPI) data. The ‘body’ shows the distance between the open and the close of a candle.

The January and current February highs at $1.1382 to $1.1383 will need to be exceeded for EUR/USD to continue its ascent towards the next higher October and 5 November lows at $1.1513 to $1.1529.

EUR/GBP is side-lined

EUR/GBP continues to oscillate around the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at £0.8425, having found minor support at £0.8413 over the past couple of days.

While this level underpins, resistance above Monday’s high at £0.8478 may be revisited and perhaps also the 2020-to-2022 downtrend line at £0.8486 and even the 200-day SMA at £0.8512.

A slip through the £0.8413 low would probably lead to a tumble back towards the November trough at £0.8381 being seen.

GBP/USD still hovers above minor support ahead of US CPI data

GBP/USD saw a minor retracement from its early February high at $1.3628 to the mid-November high, 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and 6 January low at $1.3513 to $1.349 from where it recovered. Further sideways trading is expected to be seen whilst awaiting US CPI readings later today.

For now, yesterday’s high, two-month downtrend line and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at $1.3589 to $1.3599 are expected to put a lid on the cross. Slightly above this resistance sits the recent $1.3628 high.

Only a slip through Monday’s $1.349 low would have bearish implications and would push the $1.3442 to $1.3431 support zone to the fore. It consists of the early and late January lows and the 55-day SMA. Further down lies the January trough at $1.3359.

    • Bitcoin's rally is fueling gains across the market. Here are 3 altcoins with breakout potential:   Fetch.ai (FET): Bullish triangle pattern hints at a surge to $3.48 or even $5 by month's end. Floki (FLOKI): Recent breakout suggests a climb to $0.00045, capitalizing on meme coin momentum. **** (****): Inverted head & shoulders pattern forming, potentially driving price to $0.000071.   Could these be the next big crypto moonshots, or are they headed for a fall? Read the full article here for a more detailed analysis of each altcoin, including charts and technical indicators: https://coinpedia.org/price-analysis/memecoins-for-3x-profits-by-the-end-of-may/
    • Bitcoin (BTC) is breaking out, surging nearly 10% in a week and reclaiming the $67,000 level. This bullish trend has ignited questions about whether a new all-time high, or even the psychological barrier of $100,000, is within reach. Key Points:   Post-Halving Rally Echo: The current surge resembles past post-halving rallies, where Bitcoin's price historically jumps after its block reward gets reduced. This scarcity could be driving the current upswing.   Technical Indicators Support Bullish Outlook: Daily charts hint at a potential breakout from a resistance trendline, signifying the end of a corrective phase. Additionally, bullish signals emerge from technical indicators like VI lines and ADX. Fibonacci Levels Suggest Six-Figure Target: Based on Fibonacci levels, a significant price increase is on the table. If the momentum holds, a moonshot to $100,000 this year seems achievable. However, some analysts predict a more conservative target of $77,842 by Q2 2024.   AI Predicts Bullish Q2, But How Bullish?:  The analysis incorporates predictions from ChatGPT. While many expected a bullish forecast, ChatGPT surprised with a potential rally to a staggering $87,613 by the end of June! Is Bitcoin on the cusp of a historic bull run, or is this just a temporary spike?   Read the full article here for a deeper dive into the technical analysis, expert opinions, and a closer look at the AI's prediction:  https://coinpedia.org/price-analysis/chatgpt-predicts-how-high-can-bitcoin-price-rally-in-q2-2024/    
    • Pepe, the meme coin, has dropped 12% after reaching record highs earlier this week. This has investors wondering if it's a good time to buy. Why Did Pepe Surge? The Pepe price jump was linked to the return of an online personality known as "Roaring Kitty," who was a key figure in the meme stock craze of 2021. This triggered excitement around Pepe, similar to what happened with meme stocks back then. Is Now the Time to Buy Pepe? Experts say it might be a bit early. While the price has dropped, it's still significantly higher than usual. Instead of buying now, investors might want to wait for a retest of a specific price point (around $0.00000920) which could offer better buying opportunities. Why Are Some Investors Still Bullish on Pepe? Despite the recent drop, many believe Pepe has room to grow. Here's why: Popularity: Pepe is gaining popularity, which could drive the price up. Market Cap: Compared to other meme coins like Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, Pepe's market cap is still relatively low. This means there's potential for significant growth.
