The Analytical Overview of the Main Currency Pairs on 2017.09.29

The EUR/USD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 1.17447
  • Open: 1.17861
  • % chg. over the last day: +0.32
  • Day's range: 1.17726 – 1.18010
  • 52 wk range: 1.0341 – 1.2069

Yesterday, the dollar index (#DX) moved away from local highs. The EUR/USD currency pair kept the support level of 1.17200, which caused a corrective movement. At the moment, the technical pattern is ambiguous. The trading instrument is consolidated (1.17750-1.18000). We expect economic reports from Germany and the United States.

The news background on 2017.09.29:

  • - Statistics on the labor market in Germany at 10:55 (GMT+3:00);
  • - The Eurozone consumer price index at 12:00 (GMT+3:00);
  • - The data on expenditures of individuals in the US at 15:30 (GMT+3:00);
  • - The consumers' expectations and sentiment from the University of Michigan at 17:00 (GMT+3:00).

EUR/USD

Indicators do not send accurate signals. The price has fixed between 50 MA and 200 MA, which are quite strong dynamic levels of support and resistance.

The MACD histogram is in the positive zone, but below the signal line, which gives a weak signal to buy EUR/USD.

Stochastic Oscillator is located in the neutral zone, the %K line is above the %D line, which indicates the growth of the EUR/USD quotes.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.17750, 1.17000
  • Resistance levels: 1.18000, 1.18400

If the price fixes above the round level of 1.18000, we expect a correction of the EUR/USD currency pair. The immediate goal for profit-taking is 1.18400.

Alternative option. If the EUR/USD quotes overcome the level of 1.17750, it is necessary to search for entry points to the market for opening short positions. The movement is tending to 1.17200-1.17000.

If the statistics on the UK economy turns out to be weak, we recommend considering selling GBP/USD. The target movement level is 1.33600-1.33500.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.24100, 1.23500

If the statistics on the Canadian economy turns out to be weak, purchases on the USD/CAD currency pair may prevail. The immediate goal for profit taking is a round level of 1.25000.

Alternatively, USD/CAD may drop to 1.23500.

If the price fixes above the 112.700 level, we recommend considering buying USD/JPY. The movement is tending to 113.200.
