Euro bulls were encouraged by the speech of ECB head Christine Lagarde yesterday, thereby maintaining the bullish momentum in the market.

Representatives from the Fed and the ECB will deliver speeches this week, which could inevitably affect market demand. But since there are no economic statistics scheduled to be published, demand is expected to increase for the European currency.

Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair

Trading recommendations for October 21

A report indicating the UK's inflation rate will be released today, and if it came out with good figures, an increase would be seen in the GBP / USD pair. But if the data turns out to be disappointing, the bears will try to take control of the market again.

  • Open a long position when the pound reaches a quote of 1.2985 (green line on the chart), and then take profit around the level of 1.3017 (thicker green line on the chart).
  • Open a short position when the pound reaches a quote of 1.2966 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at least at the level of 1.2932. Bad news on Brexit, as well as low inflation rate in the UK, will continue the downward trend in the GBP / USD pair.
