The US currency remains under pressure after the publication of the FOMC protocols. The Fed's officials are concerned about low inflation. We recommend opening positions from key levels.

    Indicators do not send accurate signals. The price has fixed above 50 MA and 200 MA, which signals the power of buyers.

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

    Stochastic Oscillator is in the neutral zone, the %K line is below the %D line, which indicates the bearish sentiment on EUR/USD.

    Alternative option. If the price fixes below 1.18350, EUR/USD is expected to be corrected. The immediate goal for profit-taking is a "mirror" support level of 1.18000.
