Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

The continued growth of the German economy in the 3rd quarter preserved the hope for the euro, which led to the formation of a very strong buy signal from the level of 1.1870. However, the upward movement only to 15 pips, mainly because the bears tried to regain control of the market. Fortunately, the weak report on US consumer confidence quickly thwarted the decline, thus, the EUR / USD pair returned to weekly highs today during the Asian session.

Quite a number of economic reports are scheduled to come out from the United States today. For example, the latest figure of jobless claims and the growth rate of the US GDP for the 3rd quarter. If the number of jobless claims continues to decline in November this year, the position of the dollar will strengthen, which is a very strong signal to buy the currency. Growth in incomes and expenses of the Americans may also return the demand for the dollar, which will lead to a downward correction of the EUR / USD pair. But if the data coincides with the forecasts, the focus of traders will be shifted to the statements from the Federal Reserve, which, although unlikely to have a serious impact on the market, since the committee is not going to change its monetary policy in the near future, will maintain the bullish momentum in the EUR / USD pair.
