DAILY TECHNICAL ANALYSIS FOR JULY 27, 2022petar skakalov
Current level – 1.0137
Today’s trading session started calmly for the single European currency. Neither the bears, nor the bulls manage to take advantage. At the time of writing the analysis, the first major support would be at 1.0115. If the bulls manage to gain a preponderance, they will have to deal with the resistance at 1.0168, with the main obstacle being the level at 1.0271. There is a lot of macroeconomic news today that could cause a strong move in the currency pair, but investors’ eyes will most likely be on the Federal Interest Rate decision news at 18:00 GMT and Powell’s press conference shortly after that, at 18:30 GMT. Given the present levels of inflation, a 1 percent increase should not be ruled out, despite current expectations for a 75 bps hike. Whatever the outcome, volatility will continue to be high and strong moves either direction can be expected.
Current level – 137.02
With the Ninja, the trading session began ambitiously for the bulls and, at the time of writing the analysis, they are headed for the first key resistance at 138.42. If the bears manage to reverse the first market moves of the day, they would most likely reach support at 136.69. A breach of the aforementioned level would increase the odds for a deeper sell-off towards the psychological support at 136.00.
Current level – 1.2037
Over the last ten days, we are witnessing a consolidation in the range for the Sterling – 1.190 – 1.205. If the bulls succeed in breaking the range, the next resistance in front of them would be at 1.212. If, on the other hand, the bears manage to make a breakthrough, the next key support for them would be at 1.1952.
