Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair
The test of 1.0356 happened when the MACD line went up quite a lot from zero, which limited the upward potential of the pair. Sell-offs at 1.0404 also did not bring much result as after a downward correction of around 10 pips, demand for euro returned. No other signals appeared for the rest of the day.
Good data on business sentiment in Germany and the Euro area led to a sharp rise in euro yesterday morning. Then, dollar saw further pressure after the US published its report on producer prices for October. According to the index, inflation continues to decline, which could prompt the Fed to ease its aggressive policy. However, today, there is nothing that could help euro to recover its positions, so don't expect another growth. Although ECB President Christine Lagarde is scheduled to speak, she will only tell their planned changes on monetary policy. On the bright side, the afternoon promises to be much more interesting as ahead are reports on retail sales and industrial production in the US. If all indicators turn out to be better than expected, demand for dollar will return, which will exacerbate the downward correction in EUR/USD. Speeches by Fed representatives John Williams and Christopher Waller can also play on the side of dollar, as will an aggravation of the geopolitical situation in the world after yesterday's arrival of two missiles on the territory of Poland, which claimed the lives of people.
For long positions:
Buy euro when the quote reaches 1.0402 (green line on the chart) and take profit at the price of 1.0463.

MACD line - when entering the market, it is important to be guided by the overbought and oversold zones.
Important: Novice traders need to be very careful when making decisions about entering the market. Before the release of important reports, it is best to stay out of the market to avoid being caught in sharp fluctuations in the rate. If you decide to trade during the release of news, then always place stop orders to minimize losses. Without placing stop orders, you can very quickly lose your entire deposit, especially if you do not use money management and trade large volumes.
And remember that for successful trading, you need to have a clear trading plan. Spontaneous trading decision based on the current market situation is an inherently losing strategy for an intraday trader.
