To open long positions on EUR / USD, you need:

As I noted yesterday, the growth potential of the euro is gradually coming to an end, and today, in order to maintain the upward movement, the bulls need a break of the resistance level of 1.1465, which will open a direct path to the maximum of December last year in the area of 1.1497 and will lead to an update of the area of 1.1525, where I recommend fixing the profits. With the euro decline scenario in the first half of the day, the formation of a false breakdown in the support area of 1.1435 will also be a signal to buy, otherwise opening long positions in EUR / USD is best for a rebound from 1.1407.

Yesterday's weak data on the eurozone economy have limited the growth of the euro, and today all attention will be tied to the protocols of the Federal Reserve System, which is likely to lead to the strengthening of the US dollar. A breakout and consolidation below the support level of 1.1435, or the formation of a false breakdown in the resistance area of 1.1465, will be a signal to open short positions in order to further downward correction to the area of the larger support area of 1.1407 and 1.1378, where I recommend fixing the profits. In the case of continued growth in the first half of the day above the resistance of 1.1465, it is best to open short positions to rebound from the maximum of 1.1497.
