Analysis of trading charts from August 2

The Euro/Dollar currency pair failed to show proper activity during the last trading day, the movement was reduced to the boundaries of the 1.1850/1.1900 pullback previously established on the market.

In simple terms, we have stagnation after a pullback from the resistance level of 1.1900.

The trading plan of August 2 considered scenarios of a movement coming from the 1.1850/1.1900 borders, but due to low activity, the quote remained within the range.

After the price rebound from the resistance level of 1.4000, the Pound/Dollar currency pair entered a correction stage, where it managed to fall below 1.3900.

In this situation, market participants supported sell positions due to the very strong growth from July 21 to July 30, which led to an overbought British currency.

The trading plan of August 2 considered a further weakening of the pound sterling if the price was kept below 1.3880.

Economic calendar for August 3

Today, in terms of the economic calendar, the producer price index in Europe for June will be published, where it is predicted to grow from 9.6% to 10.3% in annual terms.

We study and analyze

Producer price index is the change in the price of goods produced within the European Union and sold on the domestic market in the reporting month compared to the same month of the previous year.

The data is prepared by the statistical office of the European Union (Eurostat), which collects monthly indicators from all countries in the eurozone by surveying a sample of several thousand manufacturing enterprises.

Trading plan - EURO/DOLLAR (August 3)

Analyzing the current Euro/Dollar trading chart, you can see that price fluctuations in the 1.1850/1.1900 range are still relevant in the market, so the strategy will be focused on the outgoing momentum relative to a particular border.

In simple terms, the outgoing momentum will indicate the next path in the market.

The trading plan considers two possible scenarios.

The first is focused on the subsequent downward movement, where holding the price below 1.1850 will open the way in the direction of 1.1800.

The second scenario considers the prolongation of the corrective move, but in this case, the quote must hold above 1.1900, which will open the way towards the psychological level of 1.2000.

Trading Plan - POUND/DOLLAR (August 3)

Analyzing the current Pound/Dollar trading chart, you can see that the downward cycle from the psychological level of 1.4000 is still relevant in the market, but in order for sellers to be able to keep the given move, the quote must be kept below 1.3900. In this case, movement in the direction of 1.3800 may occur.

The trading plan considers two possible scenarios.

The first is focused on the subsequent downward movement, where holding the price below 1.3900 for a long period will lead to further weakening of the English currency in the direction of 1.3800.

The second scenario will be considered by traders in the event of a price rebound from the level of 1.3900, but the main intentions of buyers will appear after the price holds above the 1.4000 coordinate.
