The crucial points are:



the chart of EUR/USD, the rising channel that we had traced in the previous analysis was broken fiercely, with the price closing lower than 1.07300 level. The strengthening of the dollar could be due to speculations that president Trump will apply his fiscal policy of cutting taxes and increasing infrastructure spending. The price is likely to meet some support at 1.06300 level, as there were a couple of failed attempts on Friday and today to breach it.

Charting outcome: Neutral – Marginally bearish

INDICATORS (computerized T.A)

The crucial points are:






he indicators are not providing a clear message about what direction the trend may follow. The moving averages have added bearishness in their slopes, while the balance between the negative and the positive dynamic have negatively changed. The trend dynamic has increased by +23.57%, whilst the market’s volatility has marginally decreased by -7.95%. Finally, the oscillators have passed into marginally oversold levels.

Indicators outcome: Neutral – Marginally bearish       


Both indicators and charting seem to confirm that the market is possible to follow the neutral path. However, there are arguments suggesting the continuation of the marginally bearish path. Should the price break lower than 1.06300 level, the next support could occur at 1.05200 level. On the contrary, if the price appreciates higher than 1.07300 level, the price will find the next resistance at 1.08600 level.
