EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD pullback unlikely to last

EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD weakness proves brief, with the bulls likely to come back into play.

​EUR/USD weakens, yet bulls could yet come back into play

EUR/USD fell below the $1.185 support level yesterday, with the price falling back into the prior resistance level of $1.183 which now provides support.

The original break through $1.1881 did signal the potential for a bullish reversal of the downtrend seen in June and July. Thus, this recent breakdown could yet be a retracement before we head higher once again. With that in mind, watch for the bulls to potentially come back into play here, with a break below the $1.1752 low required to bring a continuation of that bearish trend.

GBP/USD respecting 76.4% Fibonacci support once again

GBP/USD looks to have found support on the 76.4% Fibonacci support level once again, with the pair on the rise from that $1.3876 level in early trade.

With the recent trend of higher lows still in place, this somewhat drawn out retracement phase still does look like a buying opportunity. That bullish view holds unless the price falls below the $1.3843 swing low.

AUD/USD turning higher once again within rising channel

AUD/USD is turning higher once again this morning, following a 61.8% retracement that came after a rise back into trendline resistance. The recent rising channel remains in play here, with the price looking likely to push back up into trendline resistance.

As such, while there is a risk of a breakdown from this channel at some point, we would need to see a decline through $0.7329 to bring about a bearish signal. Until then, this channel points towards further upside for the pair. To the upside, keep an eye out for Fibonacci resistance in the form of $0.7421 and $0.7452.​
