EURUSD struggled again last week, failing to stay above the 1.1190 area.

The pair also tested the multi-year lows at 1.1110. That’s an area that could introduce lower prices if broken this week.

But as always, until the euro closes below 1.1110, the level will continue to act as support.

Attempting to sell the EURUSD just above that 1.1110 region is risky in my opinion as the pair is still susceptible to buying pressure.

I prefer to either short the pair on retests of 1.1190 or following a daily close below the multi-year lows at 1.1110.

The latter would expose the next key support at 1.0860.

Alternatively, a close back above 1.1190 would target recent highs at 1.1280.

EURUSD key levels

GBPUSD looks ready for the next leg lower this week.

The pair has been trending lower since March, but the recent sideways price action has made it a tricky pair to trade.

That said, consolidation is a healthy sign for the continuation of any trend.

But it’s going to take a daily close below 1.2380 to get the pound moving again.

Until that occurs, GBPUSD is susceptible to buying pressure just like its euro counterpart above.

A daily close below 1.2380 would expose the 1.2100 handle.

Alternatively, a breach of last week’s highs at 1.2520 would expose 1.2580.

GBPUSD key levels

I wrote about the potential for further AUDUSD unwind on July 24th.

Given the long-standing downtrend coupled with a similar ascending channel to that of April, a move lower seemed almost certain.

Sure enough, AUDUSD is currently 70 pips lower since last Wednesday’s post.

Sellers also took out that ascending channel support near 0.6960. That’s the region we were eyeing for a short last week.

It’s no surprise then that I like that same 0.6960 area as resistance for the week ahead.

If you aren’t already short AUDUSD, selling strength into that 0.6950/60 region this week is a sensible approach in my opinion.

Key support on the way down includes the 0.6910 area along with the June low of 0.6831.

But if recent price action is any indication, I wouldn’t be surprised to see AUDUSD trading near 0.6750 in the days and weeks to come.

AUDUSD channels

NZDUSD seems to be lagging its Australian dollar counterpart.

That’s good news if you miss out on selling the AUDUSD.

Notice how we have a similar ascending channel amid both a short-term and longer-term downtrend.

This type of consolidation is usually a recipe for continued weakness.

But first we need to see sellers take out channel support near 0.6630.

Until that occurs, expect to see a few bids crop up in this region.

On the other hand, a close below channel support near 0.6630 would expose recent lows at 0.6490.

NZDUSD ascending channel

GBPJPY encountered sellers late last week at 135.40.

That’s no surprise given how significant this level has become in recent weeks.

Notice how the pair caught a bid at 135.40 on June 18th and again several times during the first half of July.

As we know, old support becomes new resistance.

So as long as GBPJPY trades below 135.40 on a daily closing basis, I have to favor more downside here.

That said, I’m not nearly as interested in GBPJPY as I am with other pairs such as EURUSD, AUDUSD, and NZDUSD.

Key support for the GBPJPY include 133.80 followed by 132.30.
