The US continues to generate new economic incentives, but the decision of the US House of Representatives to send an additional $484 billion may be the last measure for an indefinite period of time. Now the government will wait for a reaction to the colossal infusion. Most of the allocated amount will be used to pay salaries to employees of small enterprises.
Meanwhile, the index lingered between two SMAs with periods of 50 and 100. A bullish signal in the current situation will be the return of quotations to the level of 2840.
Please note that the pair’s chart broke through the resistance level of 10.64, which acted as the base of the head and shoulders pattern. If quotes do not fall below this level, the likelihood of accelerating the bull trend will increase.
The asset adheres to narrowing boundaries, so we recommend taking advantage of the situation, because now the chart is near the upward support level.
