The most important event today is the scheduled speeches of Fed representatives. If such fails to support the euro in rising in the markets this morning, pressure could come back in the EUR / USD pair during the US trading session, which would quickly cover all the growth the pair had yesterday.

  • Open a long position when the euro reaches a quote of 1.1800 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1850. However, there is a low chance that demand will be at the same level today as it had yesterday.
  • Open a short position when the euro reaches a quote of 1.1760 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1709.

Since there are no important statistics scheduled for release today, the attention of traders will be focused on Brexit negotiations, which, until, has not been settled yet. A bad news will resume the downward trend in the pair, while a good news, or even lack of any at all, will raise the pound against the US dollar in the market.

  • Open a short position when the pound reaches a quote of 1.2930 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at least at the level of 1.2877. Bad news on Brexit will resume the downward trend in the GBP/USD pair.
