EUR/USD gets ready for a breakout
Information is not investment advice
EUR/USD is consolidating in a sideways horizontal range with a slight bearish bias. Consolidations like this are always followed by breakouts. It’s necessary though to put the entry levels at a reasonable distance from the current price so that a slightly broader consolidation doesn’t accidentally trigger the order.
Although EUR/USD rebounded from support in the 1.11 area last week, the 100- and 50-day MAs in the 1.1220/40 area seem like a hard obstacle for bulls. An advance above the last week’s high (1.1250) is needed to open the way for a bigger bullish correction. The downside, on the other hand, is guarded by 1.1160.
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
USD/CAD remains within a downtrend. As a result, selling the pair as it turns down from resistance is the best strategy. Support lies at 1.3125.
Asian equity markets were mostly positive as the region partially sustained the momentum from the tech-led gains on Wall Street.
U.S. stocks are set to reopen higher after the Martin Luther King Day holiday on Monday, with Yellen’s remarks a welcome reminder of the momentum behind economic stimulus measures.
