Euro: USD/EUR (EUR=X) looks set for further gains
EUR/USD has been consolidating over the past five days, with the price falling back towards trendline support.
The uptrend remains intact, with the price continuing to respect the $1.1790 resistance zone. With that in mind, it makes sense to watch out for the pair to push through this resistance zone, with a break below $1.1724 required to negate the current uptrend.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 1.17.
The projected upper bound is: 1.19.
The projected lower bound is: 1.16.
The projected closing price is: 1.18.
A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 28 white candles and 22 black candles for a net of 6 white candles.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 54.4796. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 20 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 58.70. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 30 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 67. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 1 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 10 period(s) ago.
