The Analytical Overview Of The Main Currency Pairs – Action Forex


The EUR/USD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:

Prev Open: 1.1283
Prev Close: 1.1258
% chg. over the last day: -0.22%

Despite rising inflation in the region, the ECB is accelerating its balance sheet expansion ahead of this week’s meeting and forecasting lower inflation. Total assets increased by another 26.7 billion Euros to nearly 8.5 trillion Euros. The ECB’s balance sheet is now equal to 81.5% of eurozone GDP compared to the Fed’s 37.4% and the Bank of Japan’s 135.4%.

Trading recommendations

Support levels: 1.1265, 1.1230, 1.1168
Resistance levels: 1.1323, 1.1360, 1.1436, 1.1535, 1.1613, 1.1667, 1.1717

From a technical point of view, the EUR/USD on the hour time frame is still bearish. The price is trading in the corridor, while there is an expansion of borders in the form of false breaks. The MACD indicator has become inactive. Under such market conditions, traders should consider sell positions from the resistance level of 1.1323. Buy trades can be considered from the false breakdown zone, but only with additional confirmation.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.1360 resistance level and fixes above, the mid-term uptrend will likely resume.
