EUR/USD will have a busy week
Information is not investment advice
With the Federal Reserve’s meeting and the release of Nonfarm Payrolls, EUR/USD is going to have an active week. Last week, it turned down from the 100-day MA and closed below 1.11 on Friday. On Monday, we witness a recovery in the euro. However, sellers will likely re-emerge between 1.11 and 1.1117 (50-period MA on the H4). The downside targets lie at 1.1055 and 1.1035 (50-day MA). Only the rise above 1.1130 will open the way up to 1.1150 and then possibly 1.1185/1.1200.
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.
