The staff at Admiral Markets takes a technical look at the price action of three major currency pairs marked by wedge patterns and highlights the areas to watch depending on whether they break or bounce next.

Currency Pair EUR/USD

The EUR/USD completed the wave C (blue) near the previous bottom (green) and made a rally up to the resistance trend line (red). A break above it would signal the continuation of wave 4 (blue) whereas a break below support could indicate the completion of wave 4.
