The EUR / USD currency pair on Thursday, February 28, began a downward correction against a weak upward movement. In general, instrument volatility continues to be low. Important macroeconomic publications are still not in the EU or in the USA. Important news also comes from neither the States nor from Europe. Therefore, traders still have nothing to respond to. Today, America will receive data on GDP for the fourth quarter, but this will be only a preliminary value. GDP growth is expected to drop to 2.3% in the fourth quarter. What can be said in general about the technical picture of the instrument? The uptrend is very weak, but it still remains. Volatility is very low. Thus, now is an unfavorable time for active trading. Traders are advised to trade small lots on the Heikin Ashi indicator now. It will be possible to count on a new turn of the downward movement only after the price is fixed below the moving average line. From a state of coma, a pair could not even withdraw the speeches of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell in Congress. Although it must be admitted that he did not inform the super-important of the markets. Most of his speech was centered around the problem of US public debt, its increased growth rates and the need to raise the national debt ceiling since the absence of this action can lead to a "technical" default.
