EUR/USD: plan for US session on October 22 (analysis of morning deals). Euro returned to middle of channel. Bulls target

To open long positions on EUR/USD you need:

One signal to sell the euro was formed in the first half of the day. Let's observe the 5-minute chart and analyze the entry point. In my morning forecast, I focused on the resistance at 1.1643 and advised to take it into account while making decisions. Bulls did not manage to break above 1.1643 due to varied eurozone activity statistics, which resulted in a false break. However, it has been possible to see a movement down by 10 points so far. As long as the trading will be below this range, the signal testing is expected. From a technical point of view, nothing has changed in the second half of the day.


During the US session, similar data on the US manufacturing and service sector activity are due. Strong data may cause further pressure on the US dollar, so the scenario with morning selling signals is likely. As I mentioned in my morning forecast, in order to consider a further recovery of EUR/USD it is necessary to regain control over the middle border of the sideways channel at 1.1643, which resulted in failure in the first half of the day. Only a break and fixation above this range, as well as its return test from the top downward, form a signal to buy the euro. It will be a sign of recovery to the upper boundary of the channel at 1.1666. Besides, the break of this area will indicate a further bullish scenario in the pair, observed since the middle of this month. A test of 1.1666 downwards will open a direct way to the area of the 17th figure, where I recommend taking profit. A further target remains the area of 1.1716. In case the pair's pressure regains, bulls mainly will aim at defending the lower boundary of the sideways channel 1.1618. A false breakdown there will form a good entry point into long positions. In case of lack of buyers activity at this level, I advise to postpone purchases till the area of 1.1593, or even to the low of 1.1573, counting on rebound of 15-20 pips.

To open short positions on EUR/USD you need:

Sellers have managed to break the resistance at 1.1643 and are counting on US strong fundamental economic data. While the trade remains below this range, the euro is likely to fall. Any additional false break at 1.1643 will be profitable for sellers. The situation is similar to yesterday's selling signals, which I analyzed in detail in this morning's review. Bears will focus on the return to the lower border of the side channel at 1.1618. A break and a test of that level from the bottom upwards will form a signal to open new short positions and to end buyers' stop-losses, which are located lower. This will quickly push EUR/USD to 1.1593 and open a chance to climb 1.1673, where I recommend taking profits. A further target will be the area of 1.1542. A test of this range would mean a resumption of the bear market for the euro. In the scenario with no sellers at 1.1643 the best option is to postpone selling to the upper boundary of the channel at 1.1666. It is possible to open short positions on the rebound from a high of 1.1691 immediately, counting on a 15-20 pips downward correction


The COT report (Commitment of Traders) for October 12 recorded a growth of both short and long positions. However, the former are numerous, which slightly reduced the negative delta. The political problems in the United States have been solved. Besides, the latest fundamental reports are favorable for traders, which indicates that the US economy continues to recover at a rapid pace. The Federal Reserve's consideration of curtailing its bond-buying program is not the news that could favor dollar buyers. However, the European Central Bank representatives began to express concern about the pace of inflation growth allowing the European currency to start gradually regaining its positions. This trend may continue in future, especially in case of strong EU economic statistics. However, the larger medium-term demand for risky assets will remain limited due to the European Central Bank's wait-and-see attitude. The COT report shows that long non-commercial positions rose from 196,819 to 202,512, while short non-commercial positions jumped from 219,153 to 220,910. At the end of the week, total non-commercial net positioning was up slightly to -18,398 versus -22,334. The weekly closing price fell to 1.1553 versus 1.1616.
