Weekly Technical Forex Forecast 29.05-02.06.2017


EUR/USD

The euro rebounded from the resistance level 1.1231 – 1.1243 and continued trading in the local consolidation under this level. The fall was on increased volume with BID deltas, so we can’t open long positions now. On the other hand there is a strong uptrend for the euro, that’s why it is too risky to open sales now.

Also we need to highlight a huge volume accumulation in the range, so its breakout, probably, will start a new local trend.
