The EUR/USD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 1.1738
  • Prev Close: 1.1730
  • % chg. over the last day: -0.07%

European industrial production fell by 0.3%, in line with analysts' forecasts. Given the slight strengthening of the dollar index, the European currency was unable to rebound from price lows.

  • 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 is about to consolidate in a narrow price range. 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.
