Hello trader,

Please find here below this week's wave analysis on the EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY daily, weekly and monthly charts. More education, analytics, articles, and webinars can be found daily on Admiral Markets. https://admiralmarkets.com/analytics/

EUR/USD

The EUR/USD is still trapped in a large consolidation zone. Price is going sideways as it is unable to break the main support or resistance levels. The bullish momentum prior to the consolidation, however, makes a bullish breakout eventually more likely. Price could be completing a wave 2 (purple) or a wave 4 (pink) but a break below the support zone (green) could indicate a larger bearish correction.

Daily chart:

The EUR/USD is building a wave 5 (light purple) within a larger wave A (red). That wave 5 could already be completed if price breaks below the support on the daily chart. Alternatively wave 5 can extend higher before completing wave A (red).

Weekly chart:

The EUR/USD bullish momentum is most likely building a 5th wave (purple) within a wave A (red), which is part of a larger bullish ABC (red).

Monthly chart:

GBP/USD

The GBP/USD is still in an uptrend but key resistance levels remain close by.

Daily chart:

The GBP/USD could be in wave 4 (light purple) but a break above the resistance trend line (red) and bottom of wave 1 (light purple) invalidates the wave 4 pattern (light purple). A break below the support levels could indicate a downtrend within wave 5 (light purple).

Weekly chart:

The GBP/USD bearish breakout could see the continuation of the wave 5 (purple) whereas a bullish break above resistance (red) could indicate that the wave C has been completed at the bottom.

Monthly chart:

USD/JPY

The USD/JPY is in a difficult spot where it could be building a bullish retracement within the downtrend or starting a new bullish reversal. A break below the support trend line (blue) could indicate a downtrend continuation whereas a break above the resistance (red) indicates a bullish reversal.

Daily chart:

The USD/JPY is expanding the bearish correction of wave Y (light purple) of wave B (red) after breaking below the support zone.

Weekly chart:

The USD/JPY could now fall towards the Fibonacci levels of wave Y (light purple).

Monthly chart:
