EUR / USD plan for the US session on February 13. Industrial production data put pressure on the euro

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

Weak data on industrial production put pressure on the euro in the first half of the day but buyers are still holding the pair above the support of 1.1315, to which I paid attention. While trading is conducted above this range, the demand for the euro will remain but the main goal of the buyers is to update the maximum around the level of 1.1351. A consolidation above here will lead to a new upward trend in the area of 1.1386, where I recommend fixing profits. In the case of a decline below the level of 1.1315, you can consider long positions at a rebound from the low of 1.1289, where the bulls will try to build the lower limit of the new upward price channel.

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

Bears showed themselves in the morning but now requires a breakthrough and consolidation below the support of 1.1315. Only in such a scenario, we can expect a further decline of EUR/USD to the area of 1.1289 minimum, where I recommend taking profits. If the euro rises in the afternoon after the release of weak data on inflation in the US, you can consider short positions from 1.1351 or sell the euro major pair for a rebound from the maximum of 1.1386.
