EUR / USD: plan for the US session on February 5. Eurozone PMI indices pushed the euro down

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

Buyers of the euro were in a losing situation after the release of weak PMI indices for the eurozone countries, which led to a further decrease in the euro along with the trend. At present, it is best to return to long positions after the formation of a false breakdown around the support level of 1.1412 or to rebound from a minimum of 1.1392, where major players will show themselves. The main task will be the recovery of EUR / USD and the resistance test of 1.1448, where I recommend fixing the profits. However, only a breakdown of this level will lead to a real change in the current downtrend.

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

In the second half of the day, sellers will try to break through the support of 1.1412 from the second time, which will lead to a further sale of the euro to the minimum area of 1.1392, where I recommend fixing the profits, especially if weak fundamental statistics on the American economy are released. In the case of a larger upward correction of the euro, short positions can be considered immediately to rebound from a maximum of 1.1448, above which buyers are unlikely to be able to get out today.
