EUR/USD, EUR/GBP and GBP/USD mixed as war in Ukraine rages on


Recommended Posts

EUR/USD and GBP/USD try to recover while EUR/GBP stays side-lined amid ongoing crisis in Eastern Europe.

 

EUR/USD stays above key support, awaiting Russia-Ukraine developments

EUR/USD remains above the May 2019, January and current February lows at $1.1122 to $1.1106 despite the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. While this support zone continues to hold, the early January and mid-February lows at $1.1272 to $1.128 may be revisited.

Provided that the cross remains below its one-month downtrend line and the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at $1.1302 to $1.1324, the February downtrend is intact. A drop trough $1.1106 would have longer-term bearish implications with the April 2020 low at $1.1019 and the minor psychological $1.10 mark being targeted.

EUR/GBP side-lined amid ongoing geo-political turmoil

Last week, EUR/GBP touched and then rallied from major support, containing the January and early-February lows at £0.8305 to £0.8286, to £0.8408 before slipping back as Russia attacked Ukraine.

Further sideways trading between these two extremes is to be seen in the days to come. Minor resistance can be spotted along the 55-day SMA at £0.8386 as well as at Friday’s high at £0.8408 with the 11 January low at £0.8324 offering minor support.

GBP/USD continues to recover from last week’s two-month low

GBP/USD continues to gradually recover from last week’s sharp sell-off to $1.3273 in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. As long as yesterday’s low at $1.3342 holds, the mid-February low and 55-day SMA at $1.3487 to $1.3504 should be in focus but may cap.

Further up the 2021 to 2022 downtrend line, current February high and 200-day SMA can be spotted at $1.3643 to $1.3666. Only a currently unexpected fall through last week’s $1.3273 low, would put the December trough at $1.3163 back on the map.

    • Man, WazirX getting hacked is scary stuff. Remember how I kept ignoring the warning signs with Hotbit? Lost my whole portfolio when they just dipped out of crypto altogether. Nightmare!   So now I'm all about finding exchanges that are super regulated, haven't been hacked ever, and actually have this thing called Proof of Reserve, like a safety net for your coins.   Been using Bitget for a while myself. They list cool new projects before pretty much everyone else, which is awesome. But the real kicker? No hacks, ever! Plus, they keep a crazy high reserve ratio, like 200% - way more than anyone else, and they even do monthly reports to show everything's on the up and up. Super transparent.   This crypto world is wild, so gotta play it safe, you know? Just sharing what works for me!
    • Cocoa Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Function - Counter-trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Emerging Zigzag Position - Navy blue wave ‘c’ Direction - Navy blue wave ‘c’ is still in play Details -  Prices breached 8626 to confirm the progress of wave c (circled). Further sell-off is expected toward 5,000. Wave (ii) appears to be resisted below 9,000. Thus, wave (iii) downside is favored. The current movements in the cocoa market illustrate a clear downward trend. Cocoa is approaching the lows seen in May 2024, continuing its fall from the record high reached on April 19, 2024, at 11,722. Since that peak, the commodity has dropped by 30%. This downtrend is anticipated to continue, potentially bringing prices down to the 5,000 mark in the upcoming weeks.   Daily Chart Analysis A close analysis of the daily chart shows that cocoa completed a significant bullish impulse wave cycle starting in September 2022, when prices were around 2,000. By April 2024, this impulse wave had increased prices by over 430%, reaching the all-time high. According to Elliott Wave theory, impulse waves are usually followed by a three-wave corrective structure. The current decline from the all-time high is thus seen as a corrective phase, expected to develop in an a-b-c wave pattern.   In this scenario, waves a and b (circled) have already finished, and the price is currently in wave c. Projections suggest that wave c will likely extend to 5,000 or lower before the bullish trend potentially resumes. This expected decline is consistent with the typical behavior of corrective waves following an impulsive move.     H4 Chart Analysis The H4 chart offers a closer view of the sub-waves within this decline, showing a potential 5-3-5 corrective structure. In this structure, wave c is currently in its 2nd sub-wave, wave (ii), which seems to have completed below the 9,000 mark. The price is expected to break below the 7,000 level to continue its decline towards the 5,000 target. However, any further extension higher for wave (ii) should be limited below the 10,323 high, preserving the integrity of the corrective pattern.     Summary In summary, the Elliott Wave analysis indicates that cocoa is in the midst of a substantial corrective phase following its all-time high in April 2024. The key levels to monitor include the 9,000 mark, which wave (ii) has already dropped below, and the 7,000 level, which could indicate the continuation of the decline. The ultimate target for wave c is projected around the 5,000 mark, aligning with the typical behavior of corrective waves. This analysis highlights the importance of closely observing wave structures and key price levels to predict future movements in the cocoa market, offering valuable insights for both short-term and long-term trading strategies.
