General overview

After a slight decline on Tuesday the pair went up, this growth was due to an increase in demand on the European currency among investors who moved their assets from a weaker yen to European securities.

The price went up and reached the key resistance level. After breaking the resistance level 1.3120 dollar rose with renewed vigor as many investors began to close their short positions.

Trading recommendations

Should the pair go down it will be traded in the Cloud or breaks it. The targets for going down are 1.3000 and 1. 2940.

If the pair continues its growth, the first target will be the level 1.3090.

We forecast a weak lateral movement in the beginning of the trading day which is to go into an uptrend or downtrend. It is recommended to have a pause until the situation is clarified.

Place a stop loss above the Kijun-Sen in the case of a southern movement and below the Kijun-Sen, in the case of a north one, respectively. As the price moves we move and stop level after it.
