Technical analysis recommendations on EUR/USD and GBP/USD for October 3, 2022

Higher timeframes

Last week marked the beginning of a corrective rise. At the same time, on the daily timeframe, the emerging correction reached the main resistances of the daily death cross (0.9756 - 0.9867). The nearest reference point for the development of a correction is now the area of 0.9945–52 (the final level of the daily Ichimoku cross + weekly short-term trend). The elimination of the daily cross and the acquisition of weekly short-term support will allow us to consider further prospects, for example, overcoming the trend line, the psychological level of 1.0000, the weekly resistance (1.0071) and entering the daily cloud. If the correction fails and ends, it will be possible to assess the situation for bears in more detail when the low (0.9536) is updated and the downward trend is restored.

H4 – H1

At the moment, the main advantage on the lower timeframes belongs to bulls. To continue the rise, the following reference points 0.9860 - 0.9917 - 0.9979 (classic pivot points) can be noted, and if bullish sentiment strengthens, an upward target will be formed for the breakdown of the H4 cloud. The current attraction and support is now provided by the central pivot point of the day (0.9798). As the correction deepens, the main attention will shift to support at 0.9692 (weekly long-term trend), S1 (0.9741) may provide intermediate support. Consolidation below and reversal of the moving average will affect the current balance of power. In the current situation, the transition of the main advantage to the side of the bears may be the beginning of the completion of the corrective rise in the higher timeframes.
