Trading recommendations

It is likely that the pair will demonstrate a downward trading in the nearest future. The downtrend is developing without any incident and very smoothly, which, in general, is appreciated by the market.

If the pair returns to the northern movement its goal will be 1.5180, then 1.5250.

When the price moves we should move and stop-loss level. When we get profit of 20-30 points stop loss should be placed into a break even.
