The MACD histogram has fixed in the negative zone, but above the signal line, which delivers a weak signal to sell EUR/USD.

Stochastic Oscillator is near the overbought zone, the %K line is below the %D line, which indicates the development of the downward trend on the EUR/USD currency pair.

Important news from the EU is not expected today. We recommend to pay attention to the news feed from the United States:
– the index of consumer expectations from the University of Michigan (17:00 GMT + 2: 00);
– consumers’ sentiments index from the University of Michigan (17:00 GMT + 2: 00).

Trading recommendations:

Support levels: 1.05900
Resistance levels: 1.06850

If the price fixes below 1.05900, the “bearish” moods on the EUR/USD currency pair may continue to the level of 1.05500.

An alternative would be the EUR/USD correction to the level of 1.06850. It is better to look for the entry points into the market after the breaking and retesting the local resistance of 1.06300.
