Trading Setups for This Week:
Primary View:
Since the end of last year, the price has been creating a triangle pattern.
The triangle ended in the previous week with a breakout to the upside.
Although the breakout was mild and the price created a wedge (blue) straight away, the buy signal is still here.
Alternative View:
If the price comes back below the green horizontal support, we will get a proper signal to sell.
Primary View:
The pair started February with a bearish breakout from the wedge (blue) and a signal to sell.
Friday ended with a nice shooting star candle, which promotes a further drop.
As long as we stay below the yellow resistance, we have a strong signal to sell.
Alternative View:
EURCHF climbing back above the yellow resistance will be a proper signal to go long.
Primary View:
February has been a terrible month for the EURUSD with the price going down almost every single day.
Friday could have brought a stop to that as the price created a nice hammer on the 38.2% Fibonacci.
As long as we stay above that support, the mid-term sentiment is positive.
Alternative View:
If the main pair drops below 38.2%, it would mean that the February weakness will continue for a longer time.
