EURUSD and GBPUSD Near Major Resistance Levels

EURUSD

The ECB (European Central Bank) interest rate decision and monetary policy statement, will be released today at 11:45 and 12:30 GMT respectively.

The Eurozone economy remains tepid, and the inflation growth is still weak. The market expects the ECB to implement more stimulus measures in the coming months. The interest rate decision is more likely to remain steady at the current stage.

EURUSD has rallied since 6th September as the US ISM figure underperformed. It is currently trading in the range between the 1.1270 support line and 1.1300 resistance, where also the downtrend line resistance situates, implying selling pressure.

The RSI indicator is above 70, so be aware of a retracement.

The resistance level is at 1.1300, followed by 1.1320 and 1.1350.
The support line is at 1.1270, followed by 1.1240 and 1.1215.

Be aware of Draghi’s statement in today’s press conference, according to past experience, he might shock the market with unexpected wording. In that case, EURUSD will be volatile or have dramatic reversal.

The price is trading below the 8 and 20 EMAs, suggesting upside selling pressure.

The daily time frame Stochastic Oscillator is below 20, and 4 hourly RSI indicator is around 30, suggesting a rebound.

The newly formed resistance level is at 94.73, followed by 95.00, 95.20 and 95.40.
