The Analytical Overview of the Main Currency Pairs on 2021.08.12

The EUR/USD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 1.1719
  • Prev Close: 1.1739
  • % chg. over the last day: +0.17%

During the news release about the dollar index decline, the European currency, which has an inverse correlation with the US dollar, increased by 0.17% yesterday. But European inflation data is still weak. Germany annual inflation rate increased from 2.3% to 3.8% in July, which is in line with economists' forecasts, but inflation is still rising.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.1706, 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. But the price showed a bullish initiative from the daily support level yesterday. Under such market conditions, it is best to look for the sell trades from the resistance levels near the moving average. Buy trades can only be considered throughout the day from the zone where the buyers showed initiative.

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

The USD/JPY currency pair decreased by 0.1% due to a drop in the dollar index. Japan's industrial production index increased from 5.0% to 5.6% on a year-on-year basis. It’s better than economists' forecasts, but the overall Q3 fundamental forecast for Japan remains weak.

  • Resistance levels: 110.66, 110.95, 111.48
