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 to go long at or below 1.17985, and to short it at or above 1.18426, setting a stop loss at 1.19. Hence, we had an opportunity to go short this past Monday at 1.1873, closing the short position today, Thursday at 1.16790, locking in a profit of 2.09%,
The EURUSD pair has extended its weekly decline to 1.1626, a fresh two-month low, and trades nearby ahead of the US opening. The American currency advances for a fourth consecutive day amid demand for safety, amid fears related to slowing growth within the current pandemic context.
A worse-than-expected IFO report added pressure on the shared currency. The German survey showed that the Business Climate in the country improved in September to 93.4, missing expectations of 93.8.
The US has just published Initial Jobless Claims for the week ended September 18, which came in at 870K worse than the 843K expected and the previous 866K. Continuing Jobless Claims for the week ended September 11 increased to 12.58M. Later today, US Federal Reserve Chief’s Powell and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin will testify before a Senate special commission.
EURUSD reaches daily highs as dollar’s demand receded. The EURUSD is up to the 1.1675 price zone, as demand for the greenback eased following disappointing US employment-related data. Stocks bouncing off intraday lows putting some pressure on the American currency.
As said, the EURUSD pair is trading near its daily low, bearish, according to intraday technical readings.
The 20 SMA heads lower almost vertically, currently at around 1.1715, while the larger ones grind lower well above it. The Momentum indicator resumed its decline within negative levels, while the RSI consolidates around 30, all of which favours a lower low during the upcoming session.
Support levels are at 1.1620, 1.1580, and 1.1535, while Resistance levels are at 1.1670, 1.1715, and 1.1750.
For next week and as shown in the following EURUSD chart, our technical indicators suggest to go long at or below 1.16760, as the harmonic pattern ABCD gets completed. In my humble opinion, I do not believe the USD has the strength to push the EUR below 1.1650, unless a major development.
on the USD would come to the market (positive Economic news). Otherwise, we just have to wait for this harmonic pattern confirmation, before getting long on the currency pair.
As of 7:28 PM (GMT+1), the EURUSD was trading at 1.16740.
