To open long positions on EURUSD, you need:

In my morning forecast, I paid attention to the sale of the European currency in the resistance area of 1.1868, provided that a false breakout was formed there, which happened. Let’s look at a 5-minute chart of when it was possible and necessary to sell euros. An unsuccessful attempt to consolidate above 1.1868 and a lack of buyer activity – all this led to the return of the EUR/USD pair to this level and to the formation of a good entry point into short positions, which quickly pushed the pair into the area of morning support at 1.1832. It is at this level that all attention will continue to be focused.


By and large, nothing has changed from a technical point of view. Only the formation of a false breakout in the support area of 1.1832, which euro buyers are trying to do now, forms the entry point to long positions. In this case, the goal of restoring the pair will be a repeated test of the resistance of 1.1868, above which it was not possible to get out today. The longer-term goal will be the monthly maximum of 1.1915, where I recommend fixing the profits. Especially important fundamental statistics are not planned for today, so if the bulls do not show activity in the area of 1.1832, and while the bears are clearly aimed at breaking this range, we can observe a further downward correction of EUR/USD. In this case, in the second half of the day, buyers will focus on protecting the support of 1.1797. 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:

Sellers coped with one of the tasks and did not let the euro above the resistance of 1.1868, achieving a false breakout there. In the second half of the day, the focus is shifted to the support level of 1.1832, where the further direction of the pair will be determined. Only a consolidation below 1.1832 and its test from the reverse side from the bottom up form a more convenient entry point for short positions in the expectation of a resumption of the downward trend. In this case, the bears’ nearest target will be at least 1.1797, but its test will only be an indication that the pair is stuck in a side channel. Only a breakdown and consolidation below this range will lead EUR/USD to the lower border of the side channel 1.1743, where I recommend taking the profit. It will be possible to talk about a real resumption of the bearish trend only after the test of the minimum of 1.1701. If the bulls are stronger in the second half of the day and again return the pair to the resistance of 1.1868, then you should not rush to sell. Only the formation of a false breakout there, similar to the morning sale, will be a signal to open short positions. Otherwise, I recommend considering selling EUR/USD immediately for a rebound only from the monthly maximum of 1.1915, based on a correction of 15-20 points within the day.
