Key levels for EUR/USD ahead of NFP
2020-03-06 • Updated
EUR/USD has reached December high at 1.1240 and is actively testing levels above it. The picture at the chart changes very fast. Traders don’t really like the USD at the moment, so the pair will easily get to 1.1295 (the line connecting October and December highs). There it will likely meet some resistance ahead of the release of the Nonfarm Payrolls (NFP) in the United States.
If the US publishes weaker data, the advance above 1.1295 will bring the pair to 1.1340. The next resistance will be at 1.1400. Given the bearish divergence on the H4, you may look for reversal patterns around 1.1290 targeting a return down to 1.1240 and 1.1200 – this will be an option if NFP exceeds expectations. Selling the euro will also be an idea if EUR/USD slides below 1.1175. The target in this case will be at 1.1100.

Hey folks, it’s a wrap to yet another month in the 2023 calendar, and I’m guessing you know what that means - time for another episode in the “What To Trade” series. For December, I will be mapping out trade more cautiously as the market volatility often drops
Gold prices, reaching the highest since May 5, are consolidating as traders await the US PCE Price Index, a key inflation indicator.
