How to use the basic technical analysis concepts we have shared with you to predict the next week’s currency pair price movement
EURUSD Rates Week in Review
Last week, our technical indicators suggested initiating a short position on the EURUSD between 1.10906 and 1.10202, closing the position at 1.09 or below 1.09. Hence, our technical indicator trade suggestion for this week was not triggered, as the lowest price for the week in the EURUSD was set this past Monday at 1.1095.
The EURUSD pair reached a new multi-week high of 1.1263 early Thursday, to later stabilize around 1.1200 ahead of the ECB’s monetary policy announcement. Ahead of the event, market players retained their optimistic stance but paused high-yielding buying. Backing the upbeat mood, The German Merkel’s coalition reached a deal on a €130 billion stimulus package, which consists of tax cuts and infrastructure spending.
Also, US Retail Sales came in better than anticipated, down by 11.7% in April when compared to a year earlier.
The pair surpassed the mentioned high after the ECB added €600 billion in QE, but retreated as ECB’s head Lagarde began to speak, and the US published employment-related data. The central bank’s head acknowledged that the labour market is rapidly deteriorating and that the contraction is “significant,” although she added that activity is expected to rebound in Q3. The GBP forecasts for this year has been cut to -8.7%, while inflation was downwardly revised to 0.3% for this 2020.
In the US, job cuts announced by U.S.-based employers totalled 397,016 in May, down 40.8% from April. Initial Jobless Claims for the week ended May 29 came in slightly worse than anticipated, printing at 1.87 million. More worrisome, the Continuing Jobless Claims for the week ended May 22 were up to 21.487 million.
EURUSD is trading above 1.13, the highest since mid-March. The ECB added €600 billion in fresh stimulus, more than expected. The bank’s move joins German stimulus and hopes for a recovery.
After hitting 1.1271, the EURUSD pair is flat for the day, trading at around 1.1235. The short-term picture maintains the risk skewed to the upside, as the pair continues to develop above a bullish 20 SMA, while technical indicators have resumed their advances after correcting overbought readings. Nevertheless, the 1.1260 price zone is a tough resistance area that the pair needs to clear to be able to extend its gains.
Support levels are now set at: 1.1205, 1.1160, and 1.1120, while Resistance levels are 1.1260, 1.1300, and 1.1340.
For next week, our technical indicators suggest to be long on the EURUSD with an entry price level of 1.11670, and stop loss at 1.1005, for profit taking at 1.13615. At this stage, a short position should only be considered at or above 1.14950, according to our technical indicators reading, as illustrated in the following EURUSD chart.
