The EUR/USD has completed the rising wave structure. Today the market is preparing a descending impulse. We expect the pair to move down towards 1.1128. Then the price can climb higher and reach 1.1148. Then we'd expect the descending wave to continue and reach 1.1066.


The GBP/USD pair is testing the 1.2948 level to rebound from it and go higher. We expect the price to rise towards 1.3030. Then the market can lower to meet the 1.2948 mark. Afterwards we'd consider an upside movement towards 1.3050. Having reached that point, the descending wave can be deemed over. Then the pair can start a correction to meet 1.2700 level.
