EUR/USD ran into an obstacle
Information is not investment advice
EUR/USD ran into a bunch of resistance levels between 1.1375 and 1.1420. On D1, there are two pinbar candlesticks with long upper wicks. This is a sign that traders are actively selling the euro on its attempts to recover. There’s nothing overly surprising in that: the single currency awaits the ECB meeting on Thursday and dovish comments are expected from the regulator’s head Mario Draghi.
The pair closed this week's bullish gap very fast. The dip below 1.1330 will make it vulnerable for the decline to 1.1305 and 1.1275. The short-term resistance is located at 1.1350.
This week, there are a few high-probability trade ideas I'd like to recommend to you. Trading these setups, be sure to implement a proper risk management approach.
On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone. Professionals and investors anticipate that Andrew Bailey’s lead team of policy makers will likely raise interest rates to 4%; the highest in over a decade, for the tenth time in a row.
The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.
