EUR/USD

Nothing has changed with the Euro as the price is still locked inside the local consolidation between the support level 1.1517 and the resistance level 1.1827. Therefore, our previous scenario remains actual: we can consider new positions only after a confident exit of the pair from the range.

GBP/USD

As predicted, the Pound continued its downward movement yesterday. Nevertheless, the decline was on the small volume, so we cannot allocate any new volume level, which means that we do not have a good place for a stop loss. Despite this, we still should give preference to short positions, as there is a strong downward trend.
