EUR/USD, GBP/USD and NZD/USD weaken from Fibonacci resistance

EUR/USD, GBP/USD and NZD/USD turn lower after posting a deep 76.4% Fibonacci retracement.

​EUR/USD turning lower from latest retracement

EUR/USD has managed to post yet another 76.4% Fibonacci retracement, with the pair heading lower once again. This highlights how the trend seen over the course of the past two months remains worth following.

While the trend is very shallow in nature, that does bring a higher likeliness of a deep retracement. As such, a bearish outlook holds from here, with a push up through the prior swing-high of $1.183 required to negate that downside bias.

GBP/USD turning lower after 76.4% retracement

GBP/USD has started to lose ground in early trade today, following the rally into the 76.4% Fibonacci resistance level at $1.383.

With a wider bearish trend playing out over recent months, there is a good chance we see further downside from here. A rise up through the $1.391 level would be required to negate that outlook.

NZD/USD slumps after deep pullback

NZD/USD has similarly turned lower after a 76.4% Fibonacci retracement yesterday.

The wider downtrend points towards such a move coming into play, with a rise through $0.7045 required to negate that bearish outlook. Until then, further weakness looks likely from here.
