EUR/USD: plan for the European session on May 16. Weak data on the US economy did not allow the euro to fall even lower

To open long positions on EURUSD, you need:

The pressure on the EURUSD pair fell yesterday afternoon after weak reports on the US economy. At the moment, buyers need to return and consolidate above the resistance of 1.1215, after which we can expect a new bullish momentum in order to update the highs of 1.1242 and 1.1275, where I recommend fixing the profits. If the pressure on EURUSD continues, purchases can be returned after the formation of a false breakdown in the support area of 1.1183 or to rebound from a minimum of 1.1155.

To open short positions on EURUSD, you need:

Today's meeting of the Eurogroup may limit the demand for the European currency. The formation of a false breakdown in the resistance area of 1.1215 will be the first signal to open short positions in EURUSD, which will keep the pair in a downward price channel and return to the market sellers who are counting on a repeat support test of 1.1183. The main purpose of the bears today will be a test of a minimum of 1.1155, where I recommend fixing the profits. In the growth and consolidation above the resistance of 1.1220, it is best to open short positions on the rebound from the maximum of 1.1242.
