Euro Sterling (EURGBP)
The Sterling pound outweighs the common currency driving the daily chart into a downtrend. The trend appears to make a corrective pullback on the hourly chart, drawing higher highs and reaching 0.8310. Based on the price action, it appears that the pair may resume its downward movement after touching the resistance near 0.8310. As the pair is moving in a tight range, thus the MACD and RSI look to be indecisive.
PIVOT POINT: 0.8300
Spot WTI (USOUSD)
WTI’s daily chart indicates a high buying pressure below $103.95 a barrel. Nevertheless, the bullish pressure seems to be not enough to break above that level during the Asian session. Technically, there is no signal of an impulsive gain or drastic drop before the U.S. session. RSI and MACD show high buying pressure but can’t tell where the trend line will go. On the other hand, the hourly chart shows a shift in price bias to the negative as the price pulls back to the level of $103.95, which intersects the 20-period moving average.
PIVOT POINT: 103.95

Additionally, GBPUSD has established support above 1.2990 shown in a double bottom formation. Meanwhile, Technical indicators show a likelihood of an uptrend continuation.

PIVOT POINT: 41,230
Spot Gold (XAUUSD)
Spot Gold trades lower for the second day reaching $1,940 and targeting the fail-safe level of $1,920. However, the precious metal has broken outside the upward channel and formed a bearish trend during the Asian session.
