What’s happening on the charts?

EUR/USD has been moving in an ascending channel since late March. It has touched the lower trend line and also the golden cross occurs (the 50-period moving average has crossed the 100-period MA from bottom to top). Therefore, the pair should rise. If it manages to break the psychological mark of 1.1900, the way up to the high of April 8 at 1.1925 would be open. On the flip side, if it reverses and breaks the recent low of 1.1860, it may fall to the 100-period MA at 1.1800.

Gold has failed to cross the $1735 support and turned to the upside. If bulls keep momentum and the price jumps above the key level of $1760, it may rocket to the highs of mid-February at $1790. On the flip side, the move below $1735 will drive the pair to the recent lows of $1724.

GBP/USD has bounced off the support of 1.3680 and reversed up. If it breaks through 1.3750, the way up to the intersection of 50- and 100-period moving averages will be clear. On the flip side, if it drops below 1.3680, it will fall to 1.3620.
