Upcoming reports on the euro area's PMI may help the euro regain its position in the market, provided that data turns out to be better than the forecasts. But if the reports indicate a slowdown in activity in late summer and early autumn of this year, the decline in EUR / USD will continue.

The decline in the pound may continue, especially if data on UK PMI comes out today as weaker than forecasts. Bad data will lead to a new wave of sales in the market.

  • Buy positions when the quote reaches the level of 1.2755 (green line on the chart). However, large upward moves are not expected, since there is not much impetus for growth in the GBP/USD pair. Take profit around the level of 1.2810.
  • Sell positions after the quote reaches a price level of 1.2714 (red line on the chart), and take profit at least at the level of 1.2655. However, weaker PMI data will quickly derail the pair towards its intended target.
