EUR/USD: plan for the European session on April 27. Bulls continue to push the euro to resistance 1.0845

To open long positions on EURUSD you need:

The sharp turn of the market after Friday's data on the economy of the eurozone and the US indicates how uneasy the situation is now. I stated in my US session forecast that I advise you to open short positions from the resistance of 1.0818, the test of which resulted in the euro's downward correction to the support area of 1.0787. The moment of entering and exiting the market is clearly visible on the 5-minute chart. At the moment, the bulls have managed to regain the 1.0816 level and are trying to build a new upward trend from it to the resistance area of 1.0845. The primary task of buyers for the first half of the day will be a breakout and consolidation above this level, which will open a direct path to the highs of 1.0882 and 1.0908, where I recommend taking profits. In case the euro falls under the support of 1.0816 in the European session, it is best to postpone long positions until the test of the low of 1.0787, or buy EUR/USD immediately on the rebound from the area of 1.0760.

To open short positions on EURUSD you need:

Since there aren't any fundamental data set for release today, sellers of the euro are not in a rush to return to the market, waiting for a test of larger resistances. Forming a false breakout in the area of 1.0845 will be a signal to open short positions. However, more importantly, sellers are supposed to break through and consolidate below the support of 1.0816, which will raise the pressure on the euro and push it to the lows of 1.0787 and 1.0760, where I recommend taking profits. In case EUR/USD grows above the resistance of 1.0845 in the morning, it is best to go back to short positions for a rebound from the high of 1.0882, and then, count on a correction of 30-40 points within the day.
