Brief trading recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on 09/17/20


The EUR/USD pair follows the course of the side channel 1.1700/1.1810/1.1910 (lines no. 1, 2 and 3), where the price rebound from the upper limit led to an increase in downward interest, as a result of which the average level of the channel was broken.

Yesterday's trading recommendation, regarding the scenario of the breakdown of line No. 2, occurred, having an income on the trading deposit.

If we proceed from the current location of the quote, we can see a convergence of the price with the low of September 9, where the variable support level of 1.1755 passes, which has repeatedly restrained sellers from further decline.

Based on the obtained data on finding the quote, we can consider a number of possible market development scenarios:

First, the price rebound from the level of 1.1755.

The quote is approaching the price level of 1.1755, where a stagnation is formed in its area, followed by a rebound, similar to what happened last August 21 and September 9.

Second, the breakdown of the level of 1.1755, with the retention of the given downward path.

The specified downward movement from line No. 3 (1.1910) is held in the market, which leads to the completion of the sideways channel cycle 1.1910 ---> 1.1700. In this case, it is worth waiting for a price consolidation below 1.1750, towards 1.1700.


On the other hand, the GBP/USD pair, moving from the support level of 1.2770, reached the important price level of 1.3000, which plays the role of a psychological level in the market. Such an important price value managed to contain the upward interest, which resulted in a slowdown and a rebound in the opposite direction.

Based on the current position of the quote, the correction move from the level of 1.2770 has completed its formation and sellers are returning to the market again, who will try to restore the downward tact set on September 1 in the market.

Based on the obtained data on finding the quote, a number of possible market development scenarios can be considered:

First, a further decline towards the levels of 1.2885-1.2770.

The market is recovering, where a downward movement from the level of 1.3000 leads to the value of 1.2885, and then to the main support point of 1.2770. The primary entry point for a sell position is below 1.2885.

Second, a variable bumpiness.

The market is in an unclear neutral position, which leads to a turbulence between the levels of 1.2885/1.3000.
