Daily Technical Forex Forecast 18.07.2018


EUR/USD

The Euro dropped down yesterday, but is still located inside the local range between the support level 1.1517 and the resistance level 1.1827. Therefore, our previous scenario is actual: we must wait for a confident exit of the price from the consolidation and only after that we can open new positions.  The move must be abrupt and supported by the large volume, which will be a more precise and secure signal for entering the market. While the price is trading within the range, we should stay out of the market.

GBP/USD

The Pound demonstrated a huge sink on the large volume and tested the support level/lower boundary of the local consolidation 1.3066 yesterday. The pair is trading near this mark at the moment, which gives us the opportunity to regard a scenario of its breakdown. This will be a great bearish signal.

XAU/USD
