Technical Analysis

  • GBP/USD has broken support at 1.3027 at around 9:00 GMT after testing momentum resistance at RSI 50. The pair has sharply weakened after this breakout and seems be going to test the 1.2946 support level, which was set about three weeks ago. All other short-term support levels have been broken. This indicates that bears are going to dominate today’s session.
  • EUR/USD is also under selling pressure on Tuesday after it got no support at 1.1426, but the RSI is not in the oversold zone yet. The next support level is 1.1413.
