  • Day's range': 1.12272 – 1.12569

The bullish sentiment prevailed on EUR/USD yesterday. Weak statistics on the real estate market in the US put pressure on the US currency. The euro added more than 50 points. At the moment, the key trading range is 1.12250-1.12600. We expect economic reports from the EU and the US.

Today we recommend you to pay attention to the following events:
  • – statistics on business activity in the manufacturing sector of Germany and the Eurozone at 10:55/11:00 (GMT+3:00);
  • – preliminary report on the labor market in the US from ADP at 15:15 (GMT+3:00);
  • – the index of business activity in the manufacturing sector of the US from ISM at 17:00 (GMT+3:00).
EUR/USD

The price has fixed above 50 MA and 200 MA, which indicates the power of buyers.

The MACD histogram is located in the positive area, but below the signal line, which gives a weak signal to buy EUR/USD.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.12250, 1.11750
  • Resistance levels: 1.12600

Today, it is better to open positions from key levels. We recommend paying attention to economic reports from the EU and the USA.

If the price consolidates above the level of 1.12600, the bullish sentiment may prevail on the EUR/USD currency pair. The immediate goal for profit taking is the round level of 1.13000.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below the local support 1.12250, we recommend you to look for entry points to the market in order to open short positions. The movement is tending potentially to 1.11750.
