EUR/USD (a 4-hour chart)

General overview

There was the euro sales yesterday, still it is too early to talk about the changes within the short-term trend. The euro devaluation with the ECB loose monetary policy strengthened the German exporters’ position which had a positive effect on the Old World leading economies. In this connection, we expected the institute ZEW business climate output slightly better than the forecasted medians that will support the demand for the euro. Nevertheless the release came out worse then the forecasted medians.

The level of 1.1260 breakthrough signals about the upward trend reversal. The support level of 1.1150 was broken.

The price is finding the first support at 1.1050, the next one is 1.0925. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1150, the next one is at 1.1260.

There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement and form a “Dead Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.

Trading recommendations

The sellers need to break below 1.1050 for a steady decrease. The way to the mark 1.0925 will be opened after this breakthrough.
