First, a review of last week’s forecast:
- most experts and graphical analysis on H1 tended to believe that EUR/USD would take a breather and move in a sideways channel of 1.0650-1.0850. In fact, as predicted, the pair neither fell below 1.0675 nor rose over 1.0830...
Great British pound/US dollar - is one of the most popular instruments in FX market. The volume of transactions with this pair steadily makes approximately 12%, and GBP/USD steadily takes the third place in global hierarchy of currencies in terms of liquidity level. Another factor determining its popularity among traders is its high volatility providing an opportunity to make solid profit even on short-term transactions.
For starters, a few words about last week’s forecast:
- by the end of the week, EUR/USD was supposed to get fixed around 1.0800. Graphical analysis on H4 elaborated that at first, the pair would reach the bottom at 1.0600 and then make every effort to go up to 1.0800. This happened for the most part – EUR/USD was moving down towards the target all week long and on Friday, following the news from the USA, first dropped to 1.0700, then tried to return to the target level and finished the week at 1.0740
