    Trading plan for EURUSD on July 04, 2022​​​​​​​

    Technical outlook:
    EURUSD dropped through the 1.0380 lows on Friday before reversing sharply. The single currency pair is seen to be trading close to 1.0430 at this point in writing and is expected to target close to 1.1100 in the next few weeks. Bulls are required to hold prices above the 1.0350 interim support to keep the proposed structure intact.

    EURUSD has been dropping from the 1.2350 high since January 2021, carving lower lows and lower highs. The recent downswing could be seen between 1.2266 and 1.0350 as marked on the daily chart. Ideally, prices should retrace the above recent boundary at least until the 1.1086-1.1100 area, which is the Fibonacci 0.382 retracement level.

    EURUSD further produced a lower-degree upswing between 1.0350 and 1.0786 in May 2022. Since then, it has remained subdued oscillating broadly between 1.0380 and 1.0600 and needs to breakout. A push above 1.0600 will be quite encouraging for the bulls to come back in control and push through 1.1100 going forward.

    Trading plan:
    Potential rally towards 1.1100 against 1.0350

    Good luck!

    King dollar tightening its grip across board. EUR to reach parity level soon?

    The euro traded quietly on the first day of the week amid the holiday-thinned market. On Tuesday, the euro again came under selling pressure. EUR/USD dropped to 1.0300, the lowest level sinceDecember 2002. In this connection, speculations on its parity level with the US dollar resurfaced among traders. There are a few reasons behind the euro's fall.

    The major reason was the fact that the EU reported a deficit in its trade balance. On Monday, Germany unveiled the first deficit for more than 30 years in the trade balance in May in monthly terms. Energy imports sharply increased whereas trade with Russia and China was disrupted. A worse trade balance in Germany drags the whole euro block down.

    Currency strategists consider downbeat trade results the most plausible explanation for the euro's decline. Indeed, it means a crucially different macroeconomic environment for the euro block. A double proficit turned into a double deficit.

    Therefore, the Eurozone driven by the largest economy of Germany becomes a net importer which creates fundamental pressure on the euro. Apparently, Europe's prospects don't look rosy. Experts at Commerzbank reckon that EUR/USD could slump even below the parity level for a variety of reasons, including gas issues. The crisis in petroleum imports is likely to leave its imprint on theEU economy. In turn, EUR/USD will be able to develop a steady rally provided that the gas crisis is settled.

    ECB and euro

    Lately, the ECB comes up with hawkish remarks, but it is not enough to support the euro. The regulator is acting sluggishly in normalizing its monetary policy Even if the ECB ventured into the first rate hike and raises the key policy rate to positive values, it is still lagging behind other major central banks. They have already made some moves towards tighter monetary policies. In this context, the euro lacks an advantage over other currencies compared to the period until 2013.

    The ECB's obvious hawkish stance has been spotted by analysts and priced in. Later this month,the regulator is expected to raise interest rates by 25 basis points. Market participants are anticipating the same rate hike in September. What will happen next? Further policy decisions will depend on how the central banks manage to tame inflation and how CPIs will slow down in the coming months.

    Most experts hardly believe in more aggressive tightening by the ECB. By and large, it doesn'tmatter a lot bearing in mind the US dollar's stunning rally.

    US dollar

    The US dollar index is trading at the highest level in almost two decades, aiming to settleabove 106.00. The greenback finds support from cautious market sentiment followingthe long weekend in the US. The king dollar has been reigning on Forex for quite a while. Nevertheless, the US dollar cannot extend its rally indefinitely. Sooner or later, the US dollar is set to reach a peak and retrace downward. Nobody has predicted the level when the US dollar index will level off.

    Historically, the greenback used to grow amid three fundamental factors: global inflation of more than 5%, a slowdown in the global economic growth, and joint monetary tightening by influential central banks. The last time when these three factors came together was in 1980.

    On the back of the ongoing macroeconomic situation in the world's economy, namely, weak economic growth and soaring inflation, the US dollar is set to flex its muscles. A lot of reputable analysts are poised to predict the euro's slump to 1.0200 against the US dollar later this year.

    Pound sterling

    On Tuesday, the British currency was also weighed down by the firm US dollar, though thesterling was not as bruised as the euro. GBP/USD went to around 1.2000. However, the pair is unlikely to break this level at present. Currency strategists at UOB Group rejected this scenario today. They believe the odds are against that GBP/USD will make another test of 1.1970. The currency pair is expected to consolidate between 1.2080 and 1.2170. Notably, the lower border of the expected trading range has been already broken today.

    Meanwhile, GBP/USD is following the overall bearish trend. Suggesting their bearish forecastson the sterling, experts at JPMorgan underpin their argument with the fact that inflation in the UK is the highest in G10. Moreover, the UK economic growth would be below the GDP figures of most advanced economies. Domestic jitters are denting the outlook for the pound sterling. The Bank of England will hardly succeed in reducing downward pressure on the British pound.

    Among other gloomy prospects for the UK economy is that inflation is unlikely to reach its peak until October. JPMorgan experts reckon that the CPI will approach 11% on year in the autumn. The Bank of England signaled that it is ready to speed up rate hikes and raise the key policy rate by 50 basis points at the nearest meeting. On the other hand, some analysts suggest weighty reasons why the central bank will retain its gradual pace of monetary tightening. In other words, the pound sterling has not a single factor for a gradual recovery. For the time being, the US dollar is extending its stunning rally. So, it is unclear when exactly it will top out.

    Hot forecast for EUR/USD on 06/07/2022​​​​​​​

    The first full-fledged trading day of the current week began with a strong fall in the single European currency. To the lowest values since 2002. Of course, one can try to explain this by the fears of investors about the inevitability of a recession around the world, but it looks like a farce. After all, they have been talking about the possibility of a recession for more than a day. So this is nothing new. Moreover, the final data on business activity indices turned out to be somewhat better than preliminary estimates. In particular, the index of business activity in the service sector fell from 56.1 points to 53.0 points, while the forecast was 52.8 points. The composite index, which was supposed to fall from 54.8 points to 51.9 points, fell to 52.0 points. However, even the final data on the index of business activity in the manufacturing sector showed that investors now, in principle, do not look at these data.

    Composite PMI (Europe):

    Therefore, the reasons for such a noticeable drop must be sought in somewhat different ways. It's all about the European Central Bank. As early as Monday, the head of the Bundesbank, Joachim Nagel, urged the ECB to be extremely cautious in terms of tightening monetary policy, as higher interest rates would increase the cost of borrowing for the weakest economies in the euro area. Thus, putting them on the brink of bankruptcy. In principle, this statement intersects with the words of the representatives of the ECB themselves that one must be careful when tightening monetary policy, otherwise the result will be completely opposite. And instead of improving the economic situation, it may worsen. Immediately there were rumors that the central bank would very slowly raise the refinancing rate, which would not be enough to slow down inflation. This is what caused the sharp weakening of the euro. And the fact that this happened on Tuesday, and not on Monday, is explained by a non-working day in the United States.

    So the market confidently returned to the long-lasting trend for the strengthening of the dollar. But after such an impressive fall, a correction is inevitable. That's just the European macroeconomic statistics somehow does not favor any growth of the single European currency. After all, the growth rate of retail sales in Europe should slow down from 3.9% to 3.1%. A decrease in consumer activity only confirms fears about the inevitability of a recession.

    Retail sales (Europe):

    Apparently, the reason for the rebound will be the data on open vacancies in the United States, the number of which should decrease from 11.4 million to 11.3 million, which indicates a slight deterioration in the situation in the labor market. But after such an impressive movement as yesterday, even this is enough for a local rebound. The final data on business activity indices, as shown by the experience of recent publications of similar data, will be left without attention, and will not affect investor sentiment in any way.

    Number of open vacancies (United States):

    During the inertial movement, the EURUSD currency pair updated the local low of the medium-term downward trend, as a result of which the quote turned out to be at the level of 2002.

    Due to such a rapid descent, the RSI H4 technical instrument entered the oversold zone, which indicates that short positions are overheated. RSI D1 is still moving in the lower area of the 30/50 indicator, indicating continued downward interest among traders.

    The moving MA lines on the Alligator H4 and D1 indicators are directed downwards, this is a sell signal.

    Expectations and prospects

    In this situation, the speculative hype is going through the roof on the market, which can lead to ignoring the signal about the euro being oversold. As a result, the downward move may accelerate towards the value of 1.0150-1.0000.

    It should be noted that sooner or later short positions will be consolidated, which will lead to a technical correction.

    Complex indicator analysis has a sell signal in the short, intraday and medium term due to the downward cycle.

    Analysis and trading tips for EUR/USD on July 7

    Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

    EUR/USD tested 1.0244 on Wednesday. At that time, the MACD line was just starting to move below zero, so the pair fell by more than 50 pips. It hit 1.0198, where buyers became active again, but the increase was only brief. The pair continued to decline after some time.

    The Euro area's retail sales data for May, along with economic forecasts for the region, disappointed traders as they were relatively weaker than expected. Meanwhile, the business activity report from the IHS Markit exceeded expectations, strengthening the demand for dollar even further.

    Ahead are key events that could drive the market, such as the release of ECB protocol, speeches of ECB representatives and the publication of industrial production data in Germany. Later in the afternoon, the US will post reports on the labor market, particularly the change in the number of people employed in the non-farm sector and the number of first-time claims for unemployment benefits. The two may provide more buying pressure to dollars. US trade surplus figures and speeches by FOMC members are unlikely to have a strong impact on the market.

    For long positions:

    Buy euro when the quote reaches 1.0228 (green line on the chart) and take profit at the price of 1.0268 (thicker green line on the chart). There is a chance for a rally today, but only after strong statistics in the Euro area and hawkish statements from the ECB. Also, make sure that when buying, the MACD line is above zero or is starting to rise from it. Euro can also be bought at 1.0195, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area as only by that will the market reverse to 1.0228 and 1.0268.

    For short positions:

    Sell euro when the quote reaches 1.0195 (red line on the chart) and take profit at the price of 1.0151. Pressure will return if upcoming data in Germany and the Euro area are weak and if reports in the US, especially about the labor market, exceed expectations. However, when selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero or is starting to move down from it. Euro can also be sold at 1.0228, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.0195 and 1.0151.

    Tips for beginner traders in EUR/USD and GBP/USD on July 8, 2022

    Economic calendar for July 8
    The main macroeconomic event of the outgoing week is the report of the US Department of Labor, which predicts that the unemployment rate should remain unchanged, while 268,000 new jobs can be created outside of agriculture, which is noticeably less than 390,000 in the previous month. This indicates a loss of recovery momentum and the appearance of signs of the beginning of a deterioration in the situation in the labor market.

    If expectations coincide, the US dollar may be under pressure from sellers.

    Time targeting

    US Department of Labor Report - 12:30 UTC

    Trading plan for EUR/USD on July 8
    There are only a few points left before parity, which means that the speculative hype is increasing. It is worth considering that the initial convergence with such an important psychological level can provoke traders to chaotic price jumps. This may lead to a reduction in the volume of short positions, which will lead to a technical pullback.

    At the same time, holding the price below the control level may cancel a number of technical signals, which will lead to an inertial move towards the value of 0.98.

    Trading plan for GBP/USD on July 8
    The pound sterling rushed down through a positive correlation with the eurodollar. With the current mood of speculators, updating the local low of the downward trend is not excluded.

    Tips for beginner traders in EUR/USD and GBP/USD on July 11, 2022

    Details of the economic calendar from July 8
    The report of the US Department of Labor was considered the main macroeconomic event of the past week, where unemployment remained at the same level of 3.6%. At the same time, 372,000 new jobs were created outside of agriculture, while the forecast was 268,000. US labor market data came out noticeably better than expected, but, at this time, the dollar was already heavily overbought.

    Analysis of trading charts from July 8
    During the inertial movement, the EURUSD currency pair came close to parity, which led to a massive fixation of short positions. As a result, the market experienced a technical pullback.

    The daily trading chart shows a gradual euro depreciation since June 2021. The scale of the decline is 2,150 points, which is about 17%.

    The GBPUSD currency pair, despite many attempts to resume the downward cycle, still fluctuated along the psychological level of 1.2000 (1.1950/1.2000/1.2050). This indicates an overheating of short positions, which are trying to regroup the trading forces in the stage of a change of turbulence.

    On the daily timeframe, the pound sterling has been losing 16.5% of its value since June 2021, which is about 2,300 points.

    Economic calendar for July 11
    Monday is traditionally accompanied by an empty macroeconomic calendar. Important statistical indicators in Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States are not expected.

    Trading plan for EUR/USD on July 11
    In this situation, the descending mood remains among traders. For this reason, keeping the price stable below 1.0150 increases sellers' chances for a subsequent decline (towards parity).At the same time, traders are considering the scenario of a transition from a pullback stage to a complete correction if the price holds above 1.0220 in a four-hour period.

    Trading plan for GBP/USD on July 11
    In this situation, all of the traders' attention is focused on the deviation levels of 1.1950 and 1.2050 since the stable holding of the price outside of one or another value, at least in a four-hour period, may indicate a subsequent price path.

    Details of the economic calendar from July 11
    Monday was traditionally accompanied by an empty macroeconomic calendar. Important statistics in Europe, the UK, and the United States were not published.

    Analysis of trading charts from July 11
    The EURUSD currency pair, ignoring the oversold signal, continued to decline, indicating a high interest of speculators in the current market situation.

    The GBPUSD currency pair, following the euro, resumed its decline. The vicious cycle along the psychologically important level of 1.2000 was interrupted, and the market saw an increase in the volume of short positions. As a result, the pound sterling has updated the local low of the downward trend.

    Economic calendar for July 12
    Tuesday is not much different from Monday in terms of the macroeconomic calendar. Important statistics in Europe, the UK, and the United States are not expected. Thus, traders have to keep track of the information flow and work based on the technical picture.

    Trading plan for EUR/USD on July 12
    Traders are now watching a historical event: the quote has come close to parity with the intention of breaking it. Holding the price below it can lead to a local acceleration of the downward cycle. After that, a sharp change in trading interest is possible, caused by an increase in the volume of long positions, which will provoke a technical pullback in the market. Variable and high volatility will remain in the market indefinitely.

    Trading plan for GBP/USD on July 12
    In this situation, everything points to a subsequent downward move towards the values of 1.17001.1500. In the work, it is worth considering that at this time, the EURUSD pair is the leading pair, and GBPUSD is the slave pair. Thus, in the event of a sharp change in trading interests in the euro, through a positive correlation, it will pull the pound sterling along with it.

    Hot forecast for GBP/USD on 13/07/2022

    What is happening with the pound should now be considered exclusively through the single European currency, the behavior of which determines the development of events in the foreign exchange market. And in general, everything happened exactly as predicted - as soon as the euro reached parity, a rebound immediately began. Confused only by the scale of the rebound. Less than a hundred points. And this despite the fact that the dollar is simply unimaginably overbought. So it is quite possible that a second attempt will be made today. Moreover, the single currency is again moving towards parity.

    With that in mind, the just-released UK industrial production figures are irrelevant. Although its growth accelerated from 0.7% to 1.4%. Whereas, a decline of 0.3% was called before. But there was no reaction.

    Industrial production (UK):

    Today's attempt at a rebound will be more successful due to the fact that this time its implementation will be helped by a rather serious reason. The US will release its inflation report, which should accelerate from 8.6% to 8.8%. And if earlier the growth of inflation contributed to the dollar's growth, now the situation is somewhat different. Rising consumer prices forced the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates, the expectation of which just contributed to the dollar's growth. Now everything is clear with the increase in the refinancing rate - the US central bank will raise it until the middle of next year. So the only thing that reflects inflation now is only a further deterioration in the state of affairs in the economy and the approach of a recession.

    Inflation (United States):

    The GBPUSD currency pair, through a positive correlation with EURUSD, has similar price fluctuations. After the next update of the local low of the downward trend, the quote slowed down around the value of 1.1800, where a rollback eventually occurred.

    The technical instrument RSI H4 and D1 is moving in the lower area of the 30/50 indicator, which indicates a high interest of traders in the downward move. RSI H1 in the rollback stage locally crossed the middle line 50 upwards.

    The moving MA lines on the Alligator H4 and D1 indicators are directed downwards, which corresponds to the direction of the main trend.

    Expectations and prospects

    In this situation, everything will depend on speculators' behavior on the correlating euro/dollar pair. In the event of a transition to the stage of a full-size correction, the pound will also be able to strengthen its position towards the values of 1.1950-1.2000. Otherwise, we will update the local low of the downward trend again.

    Comprehensive indicator analysis signals a buy in the short term due to a pullback. Technical instruments in the intraday and medium-term periods signal sell due to price movements within parity.

    Hot forecast for EUR/USD on 14.07.2022

    As the market had been looking forward to the US inflation data, it neglected the report on the EU industrial production. Remarkably, the data was surprisingly strong. The EU industrial output was expected to rebound by 0.4% in May on year following a contraction of 2.0% in April. Nevertheless, the data for April was downgraded to -2.5%. The actual score for May was much better than expected at 1.6%. Thus, even despite the downward revision, the red-hot reading for May was beyond expectations. However, the single European currency again moved towards the parity level.

    EU Industrial Producion, y/y

    Interestingly, immediately after the release of the US CPI, the market was petrified and cameto a standstill. The thing is that the annual rate of consumer inflation surged to 9.1% following 8.6% a month ago. A faster inflation rate was recorded in November 1981. Analysts had projected the CPI at 8.8% in June. Such elevated inflation rates dispelled doubts that the US economy is firmly on the path to recession. Such warnings have been made by a good many economists. After the market had revived after the initial shock, the US dollar tumbled. It looked like a long-awaited drop. Nevertheless, an hour later, the US dollar reversed abruptly upwards and the single European currency again returned to the parity level. Indeed, inflation acceleration bears grave economic risks and forces the US Fed to raise interest rates more aggressively. Hot on the heels of the inflation report, analysts came up with their forecasts. They project that the US Fed will raise the funds rate by 100 basis points at a time at the nearest meeting. So, the federal funds rate will increase from 1.75% to 2.75%. Such forecasts pushed the euro back to parity.

    US Consumer Price Index, y/y

    It goes without saying that the US dollar is overbought. The market obviously needs at least acorrection. Still, it has not happened yet. We assume that the euro should go below the parity level with the dollar for a start. Perhaps the US factory inflation data which is due today could push the euro down. The US PPI could have logged an uptick to 10.9% from 10.8%. It would mean that the odds are against a slowdown in consumer inflation at least in the near future. Besides, it will reinforce expectations about the aggressive pace of rate hikes by the US Fed. By and large, the US dollar could push the euro below the parity level and even settle below it.

    US Producer Price Index, y/y

    Yesterday, EUR/USD was able to gain some ground but it was not enough to change a trend.As a result, the currency pair again retreated to the parity level and got stuck within a narrow range.

    The H4 RSI could not grasp the buying interest. The indicator is still hovering in the lower area of 30/50. It means the prevailing selling interest. The D1 RSI is moving in the oversold area which means that short positions are overheated.

    Moving averages on the H4 and D1 Alligators are directed downwards according to the overall bearish trend. The H1 Alligator has multiple intersections of moving averages, thus indicating a flat market.

    Outlook and trading tips

    Despite the fact that the euro is heavily oversold, traders are still interested in selling EUR/USD. The ongoing flat market is viewed as the process of gaining momentum. Once the flat market is over, the trading instrument will burst into sharp price moves. In case the price settles below the parity level on the 4-hour chart, the market will resume the downward cycle, neglecting some technical signals. Under this scenario, we expect the pair to develop an inertial speculative move so that the euro could weaken by another 150-200 pips.

    At the same time, traders do not rule out a full-fledged correction bearing in mind the euro'soversold status. To generate the first buy signal, the euro has to recover to levels above 1.0100 on the 4-hour chart.

    Complex indicator analysis provides mixed signals for intraday and short-term trading amid the ongoing range-bound market. Technical instruments signal selling in the medium term because the currency pair is still moving at around the parity level.

    Hot forecast for EUR/USD on 19/07/2022​​​​​​​

    The long-awaited correction has finally come true. Although we are not talking about a full-fledged correction, but only about a local one. But even this is quite enough for the market to somewhat correct the resulting imbalances. So the market has prepared for the upcoming meeting of the board of the European Central Bank. But today the single European currency will have to decline somewhat, under pressure from inflation data. The growth rate of consumer prices may accelerate from 8.1% to 8.6%. Given that the issue of raising the refinancing rate has already been closed in principle, inflation data only plays the role of a parameter characterizing the general state of the economy. And judging by the fact that inflation continues to rise, nothing good is happening. Moreover, taking into account the experience of Great Britain, where the Bank of England began to raise the refinancing rate at the end of last year, that the increase in interest rates, all the more so modest, and the ECB plans to raise it from 0.00% to 0.25%, is not much more than will help. Another thing is that today we are talking about the final data, in general, already taken into account by the market at the time of the release of preliminary estimates. So the decline in the single currency will be limited.

    Inflation (Europe):

    The euro strengthened by more than 200 points against the US dollar from the local low of the downward trend. Despite the scale of price changes, the euro is still oversold in the medium term, this is indicated by a number of historical values in which the quote is currently located.

    The oversold status was removed in the short-term and intraday periods, this is indicated by the RSI H1 and H4 indicator, which is moving within the 70 line.

    The moving MA lines on the Alligator H4 indicators locally changed direction from downward to upward, which corresponds to a rollback-correction in the market.

    On the trading chart of the daily period, there is a subtle rebound of the price from the area of the parity level. Downward interest in the structure of the medium-term trend is still considered the main direction.

    Expectations and prospects

    The volume of long positions decreased at the moment when the price hit 1.0150, as indicated by the stagnation. For the subsequent growth of the euro's value, it is necessary to return above the level of 1.0150. Otherwise, there may be a gradual recovery of dollar positions, with the price returning to the parity level.

    Complex indicator analysis has a buy signal in the short-term and intraday periods due to a rollback. Technical instruments in the medium term signal a sale due to price movement within the parity level.
