– EU employment and GDP data for the second quarter are on the agenda, likely moving the EURUSD pair

Setups for This Week:



Primary View:

New week starts with the EURUSD breaking another crucial support on the 0.991

The price is making a new, long-term low

As long as we stay below the blue area, the sentiment is definitely negative

Alternative View:

If the price comes back above the 0,991, a buy signal will be triggered as that would mean a false bearish breakout (orange)


Primary View:

Gold is bouncing off the 1690 USD/oz support, which is absolutely key in the long-term

A breakout would mean a continuation of a negative sentiment

As long as we stay above, there is a chance for a mid-term buy signal, with a desirable risk to reward ratio


Primary View:

NZDJPY is inside of the symmetric triangle pattern, waiting for a proper breakout

The price breaking to the upside, would mean a legitimate buy signal

The price breaking to the downside, would trigger a long term sell signal

The first option seems more probable
