Daily Technical Forex Forecast 17.08.2018


EUR/USD

The Euro is still locked inside the local consolidation between the support 1.1303 and the resistance 1.1429. However, given the presence of the strong local downtrend, we should give advantage to short positions with this currency pair.

We can enter the market after the resumption of the price fall and a confident breakdown of the level of support. The move must be supported by the large volume, which will be a more precise signal for entering the market. A stop loss should be placed just above the breakdown volume bar. The potential of the deal is more than 100 points.

USD/JPY

The Yen carried on trading in the local range between the support level 110.17 and resistance level 111.94. Therefore, our previous scenario remains actual: we can consider new positions only after an abrupt exit of the pair from the local consolidation. The breakdown movement must be rapid and supported by the large volume, which will insure us against a fake breakout.

The breakout movement must be swift and supported by the large volume, which will insure us against a fake breakout and will be a more accurate signal for entering the market. A stop loss should be placed just below the breakout volume bar. The potential of the deal is more than 100 points.
