The upper channel of linear regression: direction – up.
The lower channel of linear regression: direction – down.
The moving average (20; smoothed) – sideways.
Despite the fact that the euro was under pressure after Mario Draghi's words that the regulator is preparing to reduce the key rate due to low inflation and slow economic growth, the euro/dollar pair was in demand at the US trading session on July 18 and ended the day in the "green" zone. Thus, technically, the trend for the EUR/USD pair has changed to an upward one, as the price has fixed above the moving average line. However, just a few days ago, the pair had already carried out such a maneuver, then the bulls did not have enough strength to continue moving up. It may not be enough now. Especially against the background of an absolutely empty calendar of macroeconomic events in the States and the European Union on Friday, July 19. Already today or in the coming days, the euro may resume its decline, as in addition to expectations of a rate cut, the markets are now waiting for a reduction in the inflation target from "about 2%" to a lower one. This is what insider information from sources in the ECB, close to solving such issues, says. This only shows that the European regulator understands that the goal of 2% is unattainable in the coming years. What is the point of setting unattainable goals? And if this goal is not achievable, then the economy continues to slow down. This conclusion can be made by traders, which will lead to new sales of the pair.
Nearest support levels:
S1 – 1.1230
S2 – 1.1169
S3 – 1.1108
Nearest resistance levels:
R1 – 1.1292
R2 – 1.1353
R3 – 1.1414
The EUR/USD currency pair is fixed above the moving average line. Now, therefore, it is recommended to buy the euro/dollar pair in small volumes with a target of 1.1292. Fundamental support for the euro is missing.
It is recommended to sell the euro if the bears manage to return the pair below the moving average line, which will change the trend to a downward one, and the target, in this case, will be the level of 1.1169.
In addition to the technical picture should also take into account the fundamental data and the time of their release.
