The Analytical Overview of the Main Currency Pairs on 2021.07.16

The EUR/USD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 1.1836
  • Prev Close: 1.1811
  • % chg. over the last day: -0.21%

Considering the good labor market data, the dollar index has slightly strengthened, which caused a slight decrease in the EUR/USD quotes (inverse correlation). Europe is reporting on inflation today. Economists are confident that the CPI number will not exceed the 2% target.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.1791, 1.1746, 1.1609
  • Resistance levels: 1.1834, 1.1889, 1.1934, 1.1969

The trend is still bearish. The price did not manage to break through the dynamic level of the moving average. The MACD indicator is inactive. Under such market conditions, it is better to consider intraday trading. For sell positions, traders should wait for a pullback to the resistance level. Entries for long positions can be found on support levels but with short targets since this kind of trading will be against the trend.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks through the 1.1889 resistance level and fixes above, the general uptrend is likely to be resumed.

The USD/JPY currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 109.62
  • Prev Close: 109.83
  • % chg. over the last day: -0.08%

Japan's central bank kept its key monetary policy easing measures unchanged and retained its inflation target at 2%. The bank also announced that it would provide zero percent loans to increase investment in green initiatives.

  • Resistance levels: 110.47, 110.73, 111.06, 111.48, 110.73, 112.18

From the point of view of technical analysis, the situation has not changed. There is a downward trend on the H1 timeframe, as the price is still trading below the priority change level and below the moving average. The MACD indicator has become inactive. Under such market conditions, traders are better to look for sell positions from the resistance levels on intraday timeframes. Buy positions should be considered from support levels, but only with short targets.

The USD/CAD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 1.2502
  • Prev Close: 1.2592
  • % chg. over the last day: +0.72%

The USD/CAD currency pair increased by 0.72% yesterday. The growth was caused by two factors: the growth of the dollar index and the decline in oil prices. The Canadian dollar is a commodity currency, so a decline in oil prices has a negative impact on the CAD.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.2519, 1.2448, 1.2404, 1.2347, 1.2312, 1.2260, 1.2190

Technically, the trend remains bullish. The price is still trading above the moving average and above the priority change level. The MACD indicator is in the positive zone with no signs of reversal. Under such market conditions, it is best to look for buy trades from the support levels. There are no optimal entry points to open sell positions now.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks through the 1.2370 support level and fixes below, the downtrend is likely to be resumed.
