The EUR/USD could still be in a wave 4 (purple) as long as price does not break lower below the support levels and especially below the top of wave 1 (purple).

GBP/USD

The GBP/USD made a bearish bounce at the resistance line due to the NFP event but price has not broken the bottom of wave X (grey)  which means that a bullish ABC (blue) is still a possibility.

In general the support (green) and resistance (red) trend lines seem to be the most important. The GBP/USD will need to break the trend line before a wave count can be confirmed.
