Good day forex traders.
I mentioned in the EUR/USD weekly forex forecast that a region to look out for would be 1.3 – 1.31. Being a historical support and resistance region and also the location of the SMA 50, we may see some resistance there. If this fails, we may be seeing a bullish momentum.
Looking at the EUR/USD daily chart above, we note that the currency pair did test the SMA 50 and retraced downwards.
I LOVE IT WHEN MY CHARTS WORK!!
Bearish target should watch out for the SMA 20 which is around the 1.28 – 1.285 region. Any bullish momentum would no doubt need to conquer the SMA 50 first.
Trouble brews as the negotiations for a Greece solution enters into a statement. European finance ministers were urging bondholders to provide more concessions for Greece. The average of 4 % demanded by investors were urged by the European officials to be further reduced to below 3.5%.
While reports were stating that the extra costs to the bondholders might be worth it compared to a default, it was reported that a number of investors were not impressed and probably preferred the profits from a full repayment.
The perceived lack of an agreement probably caused risk aversion.
