EUR/USD continued its smooth growth on small volume, but the price is still located in the consolidation 1.1578 – 1.1677. As can be seen from the volume chart below, in this range large volume is concentrated, so it can be assumed that large players are gaining positions there.
Thus, the best solution is to wait for the price to exit from the consolidation, but considering the fact that now the pair is trading near the resistance, we can consider the scenario of opening long positions after the breakout of this mark. A stop loss should placed under the breakout bar. The potential of the deal is 130 points.
