Technical Analysis


The latest published statistics from Germany recorded a decrease in the unemployment rate, as well as an increase in business activity in the country’s manufacturing sector. Positive news allowed the euro to pull ahead against the US dollar, however, rising unemployment in Italy and a decline in business activity in the Spanish manufacturing sector suggest a possible change in trend.

Technical analysis allows trend reversals as the chart has reached the upward trending resistance level.


The most likely scenario is a fall in the pair’s quotes within the ascending channel.


Bears may activate in the 1 area, as this value is the highest price since April 2018.
