Technical Analysis


After dropping to 1.12 a month ago, this pair has been slowly rising. The recent testimony of the US Fed Chairman, Jerome Powell, who announced coming rate hikes in 2022, may put pressure on the USD, boosting EUR/USD.

Currently, its mild upward trajectory appears as a consolidation under the resistance level of 1.14. We believe it may break out at this level to aim more aggressively upwards.


This pair has been following a downtrend and will likely cross the support level of 0.90 before it makes another reversal upwards.


This pair went into consolidation as soon as it reached the resistance level of 1.06. We believe it will reverse downwards to erase some of the gains.
