GBPUSD is making some steady gains in early trading ahead of the monthly inflation report while gold prices remained mixed in yesterday's trading. The EURUSD was subdued in yesterday’s trading, but that could change when the markets open today.

EURUSD Daily Analysis

EURUSD (1.13): EURUSD was little changed in yesterday's trading with the single currency finding support above 1.30. On the 4-hour chart, price action remains rather flat with in the process of forming a bullish divergence, which could see a possible move to 1.138 - 1.140 initially. Further upside above 1.140 looks bleak at this point unless price closes above 1.140 in which case, a move to 1.14975 is more possible. In the near term, EURUSD remains range bound within 1.1380 resistance and 1.12695 support.

XAUUSD (1279): Gold closed in a doji yesterday after testing the highs above 1288. But with prices trading below the 1291 - 1289 resistance level, the bias remains to the downside.
