Technical analysis recommendations for the EUR/USD and GBP/USD on October 31

Fundamental component

Today, the economic calendar of the leading European monetary units has a lot of diverse statistics, but there are no important indicators. The only thing at 10:00 Universal time draws attention to the statistics block from the Eurozone. Here, the main indicator is the consumer price index. In addition, it can be noted that the main value in the current day will belong to the most favorable closing of the month.

Also today, October will be closed. Players on the rise are determined to close with optimism, and for this, they need a minimum upper shadow on the monthly candle. The chances of success are quite large. The result of interaction with the key resistance zone of this section (1.11885 - 1.1206 monthly Tenkan + monthly Senkou Span A + weekly Fibo Kijun) will be formed in November. Meanwhile, the supports are scattered today and form a rather wide zone 1.1146 - 1.1126 - 1.1104 - 1.1082.

Yesterday, despite the uncertainty, the upward players managed to maintain their advantages at lower time intervals. Thus, they continued to rise. At the moment, the main value is the restoration of the daily upward trend (1.1180 maximum extreme) and further testing of the encountered resistance. From H1, intra-day resistance can be exerted by the classic pivot levels 1.1203 (R2) - 1.1251 (R3). On the other hand, the development of a downward correction will return the pair to the main support of the lower halves, which are located at 1.1129 (central pivot level) and 1.1108 (weekly long-term trend) today.

Rising players continue to hold on to the daily short-term trend (1.2900), clearly afraid of being in the abyss that separates Tenkan from other supports. Reliable consolidation above 1.2882 - 1.2900 (monthly Fibo Kijun + daily Tenkan) may allow to continue the rise after some time. At the same time, the recovery of the daily upward trend now lies through the update of the maximum (1.3012), followed by overcoming the resistance of the weekly cloud (1.3014-26). With a decline in the closest support zone, combining different levels of upward time intervals, 1.2669 - 1.2712 remains (weekly Fibo Kijun + monthly Tenkan + daily Fibo Kijun).

Yesterday, the players on the rise managed to stay above the support of key levels and thanks to this, they continued to rise, having strengthened their positions by now. Nevertheless, the pair continues to remain in the zone of daily correction. Therefore, the main tasks for players to increase are still related to the benchmarks of the higher halves (1.3201 - 1.304-26). At present, key support on H1 is located at 1.2884 (central pivot level) and 1.2859 (weekly long-term trend) today. A reliable consolidation below will change the balance of power in the lower halves and return the pair to the possibility of continuing to decline through overcoming the minimum extreme (1.2788).
