TThe housing price index in Germany increased more than 1% due to an influx of money from the European Central Bank. Germany has decided to invest free money in real estate.

Trading recommendations

  • Resistance levels: 1.1386, 1.1436, 1.1535, 1.1613, 1.1667, 1.1717

From the technical point of view, the EUR/USD on the hour time frame is bearish. The Euro continues to show weakness. The MACD indicator has become positive, but the buyers’ pressure is weakening. Under such market conditions, traders should consider sell positions from the resistance levels near the moving average since the price has deviated strongly from the averages. Buy trades should be considered only from the support levels of the higher time frame, given the buyers’ initiative, but only with short targets.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.1535 resistance level and fixes above, the mid-term uptrend will likely resume.

The USD/CAD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 1.2608
  • Prev Close: 1.2597
  • % chg. over the last day: -0.09%

The Canadian dollar is a commodity currency, so the USD/CAD currency pair highly depends on the dynamics of the dollar index and oil prices. Yesterday, the dollar index slightly decreased while oil prices increased. As a result, the USD/CAD currency pair declined slightly due to the strengthening of the Canadian currency. Fundamentally, both the dollar index and oil quotes have an upward trend now, so USD/CAD will be trading flat in the medium term.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.2598, 1.2496, 1.2416, 1.2388
  • Resistance levels: 1.2628, 1.2729

From a technical point of view, the trend of the USD/CAD currency is bullish. The MACD indicator is in the positive zone, but there are signs of divergence, which indicates the weakness of the buyers. Under such market conditions, it is better to look for buy trades from the support levels near the moving average. Sell deals should be considered from the resistance levels of the higher time frame or after the price returns to the corridor of 1.2496-1.2598.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks down through the 1.2416 support level and fixes below, the downtrend will likely resume.
