EUR/USD, GBP/USD and NZD/USD gains expected to persist

EUR/USD, GBP/USD and NZD/USD upside looks likely, with recent gains providing a bullish outlook against the dollar.

​EUR/USD turning higher after recent retracement

EUR/USD has been easing back over much of this week, with the pair falling below the 61.8% Fibonacci support level in the process. However, the recent recovery within a consolidation phase does point towards a high likelihood that we see the pair reverse higher before long.

With an ascending trendline in play here, there is a good chance we start to see the pair push higher. As such, a short-term bullish outlook remains unless we see a break below the $1.1219 swing low.

GBP/USD upside looks set to continue

GBP/USD has been on the rise of late, with the pair gaining ground throughout July thus far. That rally has taken us through the $1.2543 swing high, signaling a likely bullish phase coming into play here.

With that in mind, further upside looks likely, with another push higher expected before long. This bullish outlook holds unless we see the price drop below the $1.2438 low established on Friday.

NZD/USD gains ground, yet resistance lies ahead

NZD/USD has managed to outperform of late, with the pair rising through the key $0.6533 resistance level established in late June. That break points towards a likely continuation of the wider bullish trend, with the $0.6585 level now the final hurdle to overcome.

As such, watch for a break through that level to provide a bullish breakout for NZD/USD. Ultimately, a bullish outlook is in play unless we see a break below the $0.6385 low. ​
