EUR/USD: plan for the European session on June 14. COT reports. Euro bears came to their senses after the results of the

To open long positions on EUR/USD, you need:

Last Friday, in the first half of the day, the bulls gave any more hope for the continuation of the upward trend, formed on Thursday, but failed to protect the level 1.2177. Let's take a look at the 5 minute chart and talk about what happened. The bulls achieved the formation of a false breakout at the level of 1.2177, which led to the formation of a signal to open long positions, but we did not see a continuation of the upward trend. After a while, a repeated test occurs and already a breakthrough of the 1.2177 range. But for opening short positions, the condition for updating this level from bottom to top did not take place, so I missed the entry point.

The second half of the day was completely under the control of the sellers. The breakout of 1.2144 also did not lead to a reverse test of this level from the bottom up, which did not allow entering the market during the continuation of the downtrend, after which the pair fell to the support at 1.2105. There, the bulls tried to somehow protect this level, but I did not see a large rebound from it.

This morning, a report on industrial production in the eurozone is expected, which may turn out to be worse than economists' forecasts, which will only increase the pressure on the European currency and continue its downward trend. The main task of buyers for the European session is to protect the support at 1.2073, where the pair is now heading. The formation of a false breakout in this range, together with the divergence on the MACD indicator, which is now looming after the big Friday's fall in the euro, all this forms a signal to open long positions in order to return to the resistance of 1.2126. It will not be so easy to break above this level, given that there are moving averages playing on the side of sellers. Only a breakout and test of this area from top to bottom on volume can form an entry point to long positions in the expectation of an upward correction in order to renew the high of 1.2158. A larger resistance level is seen around 1.2190, where I recommend taking profits. In the scenario of the absence of bulls' activity in the area of 1.2073, it is better to postpone long positions until the test of support at 1.2023 from where you can buy EUR/USD immediately on a rebound, counting on an upward correction of 15-20 points within the day.

To open short positions on EUR/USD, you need:

The bears need to carefully think of a way to defend the resistance at 1.2126, which buyers will be clearly targeting this morning. Sellers will be helped by very bad data on industrial production in the eurozone, which for the reporting period may clearly decline compared to the previous month. Forming a false breakout at the level of 1.2126 generates a signal to sell the euro with the aim of further reducing to the area of the new local low at 1.2073, on which the breakthrough of which quite a lot will depend. Testing 1.2073 from the bottom up will form an additional signal to sell EUR/USD, expecting a fall to the new support at 1.2023, where I recommend taking profits. The next target will be the low of 1.1988. In the absence of bears' activity around 1.2126 and good data on production in the eurozone today, I recommend postponing short positions until the resistance test at 1.2158, where you can immediately sell the pair on a rebound, counting on a downward correction of 15-20 points. The next serious level is at the new local resistance 1.2190.

The Commitment of Traders (COT) report June 1 shows that long positions increased while short positions decreased, which indicates a growth in demand for the European currency in the last month of the second quarter of this year. The European economy is expected to show a particularly strong recovery in the summer, which will lead to new growth for the euro in the area of annual highs. Lifting a number of quarantine restrictions, which are still in effect in European countries, will lead to an even greater revival of the economy, which will provide momentum through an increase in retail sales and inflation, which, according to the latest report, has seriously increased in the eurozone. The data on activity in the manufacturing and service sectors also continue to delight economists, which again indicates a serious recovery. Any strong downward movement of the EUR/USD pair is now perceived by traders as a good opportunity to gain long positions in continuation of the bull market. The dollar can only hope that in the summer, the Federal Reserve will start to seriously talk about reducing the volume of purchases of bonds, but we will know about this only by mid-June. The COT report showed that long non-commercial positions jumped from 236,103 to 237,360, while short non-commercial positions fell from 132,103 to 128,038. This indicates an influx of new buyers that expect the euro to continue rising, while sellers have a wait-and-see attitude. Considering the fact that the pair significantly recovered last Friday, this may indicate the formation of a new upward trend and the return of EUR/USD to local highs. This is where the bulls will continue to accumulate long positions in hopes of going beyond them. This indicates a possible breakthrough of last month's highs in the near future and the continued growth of the euro. The total non-commercial net position rose from 104,000 to 109,322. The weekly closing price also increased from 1.22142 to 1.22326.

Indicator signals:

Moving averages

Trading is carried out below 30 and 50 moving averages, which indicates problems for the bulls and its further decline.

Note: The period and prices of moving averages are considered by the author on the H1 hourly chart and differs from the general definition of the classic daily moving averages on the daily D1 chart.

Bollinger Bands

Surpassing the lower border of the indicator in the area of 1.2073 will lead to a major downward movement of the euro. Growth will be limited in the area of the upper level of the indicator 1.2158.
