FxPro Forex Analysis: EURUSD and GBPJPY Analysis – March 13, 2018

BLGCRTV2

The EURUSD pair has managed to find support and resistance at previously broken trend lines and has pulled back to the 1.23000 level, forming what looks to be wedge across it. This can happen around important levels as sellers and buyers battle for control. The wedge can be a continuation pattern but can also cause a reversal. Until price breaks the pattern and points out its intentions patience is required to avoid being caught in a position against the move. US Consumer Price Index data later today, at 12:30 GMT, is a possible trigger for a breakout. The resistance trend line is found at 1.23492 currently, with the 1.23759 level beyond. The previously broken trend line is found at 1.24380, with the 1.24593 level above. Recent highs are found at 1.25549.

Support is found at the pattern bottom (1.23037). On the 4-Hour chart, the moving averages are quite flat, suggesting that price is building energy for a break out at some point in the future. The 200-period MA is at 1.22993, with the 1.22960 level close by. Further support is found at 1.22400 and 1.22141, with the 1.21640 beyond.
