The EUR/USD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 1.1755
  • Prev Close: 1.1736
  • % chg. over the last day: -0.16%

There are no important events scheduled in Europe until the end of August (vacation season), so it’s the US policy that will mainly influence the European currency. At the moment, the dollar index is growing, which has a negative impact on the euro.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.1609
  • Resistance levels: 1.1754, 1.1799, 1.1817, 1.1854, 1.1894, 1.1934, 1.1969

From a technical point of view, the general trend on the EUR/USD currency pair is bearish. The price went below the moving average; the MACD indicator is in the oversold zone, but there are signs of a reversal in the form of divergence. Under such market conditions, it is better to look for sell trades from the resistance levels, but after a slight upward correction since the price has deviated strongly from the middle line. Buy trades can only be considered throughout the day and only with confirmation in the form of a bullish initiative.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks through the 1.1854 resistance level and fixes above, the mid-term uptrend is likely to resume.

On the hour timeframe, the trend of the GBP/USD currency pair is bullish. The price left the trading range in a downward direction, but if it returns to the indicated corridor, the price will immediately head to the 1.3935 resistance level. The MACD indicator went into the negative zone, but there are signs of a hidden divergence. Under such market conditions, traders are better to look for buy trades after breaking the resistance level of 1.3885. Sell positions can be considered from the resistance levels within the local downward movement.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks through the 1.3714 support level and consolidates below, the bearish scenario is likely to resume.
