EUR/USD: plan for the European session on January 24. Euro buyers pulled the market to their side

To open long positions on EURUSD you need:

A good report on consumer confidence in the eurozone helped buyers to get above the range of 1.1376 yesterday, and as long as trade is conducted above this level, the demand for the euro will continue. The formation of a false breakdown in this area will be a signal to buy in order to update the upper limit of the side channel in the area of 1.1411, but the main task will be the breakdown of this area with access to the highs of 1.1451 and 1.1526. Much will depend on the press conference of ECB President Mario Draghi, which is scheduled for the afternoon. In case of a return below the level of 1.1376, you can take a closer look at long positions from the lower limit of 1.1339.

To open short positions on EURUSD you need:

The bears are required to return below the middle of the channel of 1.1376, which will lead to a larger sale of the European currency in the region of the lower border of 1.1339, but its main task will be its breakthrough with the renewal of the low in the regions of 1.1307 and 1.1272. Given the fact that Mario Draghi is unlikely to announce an increase in interest rates in the near future, we can expect a decline in the euro, and the formation of a false breakdown in the resistance area of 1.1411 will be an additional signal for opening short positions.
