EUR/USD has approached the resistance at both the 50-day moving average and the 50.0% Fibo level at 1.2150. It will have struggles to cross it, but if it manages to do so, the way up to the 61.8% Fibonacci level at 1.2200 will be clear. Support levels are 1.2100 and 1.2030.

The pound’s rally is unstoppable. After the breakout above 1.4000, GBP/USD has taken a break. If it manages to jump above the intra-day high of 1.4050, the doors towards 1.5000 will be open. Support levels are at the recent lows of 1.4000 and 1.3950.

Gold is getting closer to the key psychological mark of $1 800. It’s unlikely to cross it on the first try, but if it does, the way up to the high of February 16 at $1 825 will be clear. On the flip side, the move below the recent low of $1 775 will drive the yellow metal to the next support of $1 760.
