Technical details:

Senior linear regression channel: direction - sideways.

Moving average (20; smoothed) - up.

CCI: 69.1370

The EUR / USD currency pair spent the last three trading days in a frank flat. The first trading day of the new week can also pass with weak volatility, since no important macroeconomic report has been scheduled to date. Even the speech of Mario Draghi at the University of Bologna on Friday does not concern any monetary policy or Brexit and, accordingly, won't cause any market reaction. Thus, the pair will have to either spend the whole day in a narrow price range between the moving average line and Murray's level "2/8", or leave this corridor, giving traders technical factors for trading. However, even if Murray's "2/8" level will be reached, this will not guarantee growth for the pair, since the previous two attempts turned out to be false. Thus, the couple is now in an incomprehensible position. Based on this, traders are advised to wait for the situation to be cleared up in order for the emergence of technical grounds, as well as, the opening of certain positions. Jerome Powell will be able to get off the ground.
