Technical Analysis


The fact that the world will be shocked by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic is becoming a reality. However, after weakening quarantine measures, we see new outbreaks of disease. In Australia, the border between two states was closed, and in Spain, about 70 thousand citizens were put in strict quarantine.

Despite troubling news, the euro continues to strengthen. The base of the triple bottom figure has already been broken. The probable goal of the upward movement is 1.13500. It is worth noting that even fresh impulse growth did not force the RSI indicator to enter the overbought zone. The road up is open.


Please note that last week’s candlestick resembles the Doji pattern, which often indicates the completion of the current trend. For this reason, a bearish trend may begin.


The asset turned around from the resistance level of 79.60. A likely scenario is a decline in quotes to the nearest support line of 78.20.
