Trading Opportunities on August 16-20

In this article, we will discuss oil, EUR/USD movements during the past week and try to find short- and long-term trading opportunities.

Oil

Oil demonstrated a positive dynamic during the past week after the massive drop. Data from the US Energy Information Administration on Wednesday showed that fuel demand of the top global crude user has averaged 20.6 million barrels per day (BPD) over the past four weeks, roughly in line with 2019 levels. OPEC agreed to boost oil supply by 400,000 BPD monthly, starting in August. However, there are still concerns that the increase will not be enough to meet demand as the US and Europe ease their coronavirus-induced movement restrictions.

In this case, $73 and $75 levels are the main targets for the upcoming week. You can find more relative technical analysis in the previous article related to oil.

EUR/USD

The currency pair came to the highly important support level at 1.171 after the US employment announcement.

The price has formed a “head and shoulders” pattern and 1-2-3 pattern, both point us to the upcoming decline with the target at 1.12. In short term, we expect to see a pullback up to 1.18 according to RSI and MACD oscillators. In this case, the price will retest the neckline and confirm the pattern. Let’s check both patterns!

If the price retests neckline from the bottom and bounces off it, the “head with shoulders” patter will be confirmed.

With the RSI divergence, the chart has formed a 1-2-3 pattern. The target measures as the vertical line connecting the 2-pivot point level and the middle point on the line between 1 and 3 pivot points. As soon as the price breaks through the 1.17 support level the pattern will be confirmed.
