EUR/USD Reaches 1.1025 after Macron Wins French Presidency
The French Presidential election took place on Sunday 7 May 2017 and saw centrist independent Macron beat far right candidate Le Pen with 66% vs 34%. The result is unique considering that Macron campaigned without a traditional party and with no experience of governing.
The EUR/USD initially saw a bullish reaction to the news but after hitting 1.1025 the EUR/USD turned around and showed a bearish candlestick. Price however is still moving higher in an uptrend channel (blue/red) and a break is needed before a reversal becomes likely.
The EUR/USD could have completed the 5th waves (grey/pink) and is potentially building a reversal wave 1-2 (brown). A break above the top and 100% Fib level at 1.1023 would indicate a potential uptrend continuation towards the Fibonacci targets of wave 5 (pink).
The GBP/USD has been unable to break above the resistance (red) of the uptrend channel (red/green). A bullish break could see price move towards the Fibonacci targets of wave 5 (purple) whereas a bearish break could start a reversal.
The GBP/USD seems is building a bearish retracement within a potential wave 4 (grey), which would become invalidated if price manages to break below the 61.8% Fibonacci level of wave 4 (grey).
The USD/JPY uptrend could be facing problems if price is building a double top. A break above the top could see the uptrend continue but a break below support (blue) could start a larger bearish correction towards the Fib levels.
The USD/JPY seems to have completed the 5th wave (orange) of a 5th wave (brown) and price could be building an ABC (brown) correction. A break below support (blue) could start a larger bearish correction towards the Fib levels.
