Today, the Fed will announce its interest rate decision, which could lead to a further fall in the EUR/USD pair. It is best to consider long positions in euro after the formation of a false breakdown in the support area of 1.1423 or to rebound from a minimum of 1.1390, where more buyers are concentrated. The main task for the first half of the day will be the breakdown and consolidation above the resistance of 1.1452, which will lead to a larger increase in the euro in the area of this week’s maximum of 1.1485, where taking profits are recommended.

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

Sellers need to form a false breakdown at the resistance level of 1.1452, in case of euro growth in the first half of the day. Also, it requires a consolidation below the important support level of 1.1423, which limits the downward correction. The break of 1.1423 will also lead to a breakdown of the lower boundary of the rising channel, which will open a direct road to the area of minimum 1.1390 and 1.1355, where taking profits are recommended. If the euro rises above resistance of 1.1452 in the first half of the day, sales can return when it rebounds from 1.1485.
