EUR / USD pair: plan for the European session on January 11. Fed Chairman won’t rush to raise rates this year

To open long positions on EUR / USD pair, you need:

Speech by the Fed Chairman did not lead to serious changes in the market and only slightly strengthened the position of the US dollar against the euro. At the moment, buyers need a quick return to the resistance level of 1.1538, on which the further continuation of the uptrend directly depends on, and update the highs of 1.1573 and 1.1605, where I recommend taking profits. In the event of a euro decline in the first half of the day, purchases can be returned on a false breakdown from 1.1498 or to rebound from a minimum of 1.1465.

To open short positions on EUR / USD pair, you need:

European currency sellers are required to form a false breakdown at the resistance level of 1.1538, which will lead to the formation of the upper limit of the new downward channel and will push the EUR / USD pair to the area of 1.1498 and 1.1465 lows, where I recommend taking profits. However, a larger decline will depend on data on US inflation, which is expected in the afternoon. In case of growth above the resistance level of 1.1538, short positions in euro can return to the rebound from the highs of 1.1573 and 1.1605.
