EUR/USD: plan for the European session on February 10. Bears are trying to put pressure on the euro, but it's getting harder

To open long positions on EURUSD, you need:

Good Friday data on the labor market in the United States did not lead to a major collapse of the euro, and only after an active confrontation on the background of closing profits by major players, the pair went down to the area of 1.0943, which now represents a very important level of support. Buyers need to achieve the formation of a false breakdown in this area, which will be a signal to open long positions in the expectation of a breakout and consolidation above the resistance of 1.0975. Only such a scenario will allow you to see a larger upward correction in the area of highs of 1.1002 and 1.1022, where I recommend fixing the profits. If we reach the level of 1.0943 without volume, it will probably break through. In this case, it is best to postpone new long positions until the test of a larger minimum of 1.0905.

To open short positions on EURUSD, you need:

Sellers will wait for the next weak data on industrial production in the eurozone and continue to put pressure on the euro. However, opening short positions on the breakout of the lows is quite dangerous. A better option today for sales in the first half of the day will be the formation of a false breakdown in the resistance area of 1.0975, which will be the first signal to open short positions with the main goal of returning to the minimum of 1.0943, on which the further downward movement depends. A breakout and consolidation under this range will quickly push EUR/USD down to the lows of 1.0905 and 1.0887, where I recommend fixing the profit. If there is no activity on the part of sellers in the resistance area of 1.0975, then it is best to return to short positions on the rebound from the maximum of 1.1002.
