To open long positions on EURUSD, you need to:
The data released today on German inflation and the volume of industrial production in the Eurozone did not surprise traders much, so there were no many people who wanted to sell the euro. Against this background, the bulls made a successful attempt to regain the resistance of 1.1797, which no major seller expressed any desire to protect in any way. As a result, we did not receive the expected signal to sell the euro. There was also no place to buy EUR/USD, since after the breakout of 1.1797, the euro grew, and we did not wait for the reverse movement to the level of 1.1797. Perhaps it will happen in the second half of the day after inflation data of the USA.
If euro buyers still manage to protect the support of 1.1797 during the release of the US inflation report, then the formation of a false breakout at this level will be a good entry point into long positions to further restore the pair to the resistance area of 1.1860, where I recommend fixing the profits. The longer-term target will be a weekly high of 1.1915. If the bulls do not show much activity, and the data turns out to be much better than economists’ forecasts, a return of EUR/USD to the level of 1.1797 is not excluded. In this case, in the second half of the day, buyers will focus on protecting the support of 1.1743. However, it is only possible to open long positions on the first test based on a correction of 15-20 points within the day. A larger reversal in favor of buyers will occur if they manage to form a false breakout at 1.1743.
To open short positions on EURUSD, you need to:
The initial task of sellers is to regain the level of 1.1797, which they managed to miss in the first half of the day after the release of fundamental indicators for the Eurozone. Only a consolidation below 1.1797 and its test on the reverse side from the bottom up form a more convenient entry point for the continuation of the downward trend. In this case, the nearest target of the bears will be at least 1.1743. A test of this level will indicate the actual formation of a new bear market for EUR/USD. However, only a break in this area will increase the pressure on the pair and quickly push it to a minimum of 1.1701, where I recommend fixing the profits. If the bulls are stronger and continue to push the pair up after the US data, then it is best not to rush to sell, but wait for the update of the larger resistance at 1.1860. I recommend selling EUR/USD immediately for a rebound from the maximum of 1.1915, based on a correction of 15-20 points within the day.
Let me remind you that the COT report (Commitment of Traders) for November 3 recorded a reduction in long positions and an increase in short positions. But despite this, buyers of risky assets believe in the continuation of the bull market, although they prefer to act cautiously. Thus, long non-profit positions decreased from 217,443 to 208,237, while short non-profit positions rose to 67,888 from 61,888. The total non-commercial net position fell to 140,349 from 155,555 a week earlier. It is worth noting that bullish sentiment on the euro in the medium term remains quite high, especially after the victory of Joe Biden, who intends to give the American economy the next largest monetary aid package in the amount of more than 2 trillion US dollars.

If the pair declines, the lower limit of the indicator around 1.1755 will act as support, from which you can buy euros.
