EUR/USD trading plan for December 8

In this situation, it is worth focusing on the following levels: 1.0550 (yesterday's high) and 1.1430 (variable support). If the price consolidates above 1.0550 or fixes below 1.1430 on the four-hour chart, it will be possible to determine a further price direction. Until then, the pair is likely to drift sideways near the indicated levels.

GBP/USD trading plan for December 8

If the price stays firm above 1.2200, it may gain strong upside momentum. In this case, the quote is expected to head for the high of the ascending cycle, that is, the level of 1.2343. Otherwise, it may start moving sideways along the level of 1.2150, which will indicate investor uncertainty.
