EUR/USD Falls on Thursday, Doesn’t Heed US Macro Releases

March 4, 2021

EUR/USD fell today, extending yesterday’s drop. The currency pair did not show a strong reaction to US macroeconomic releases that came out during the trading session.

Nonfarm productivity dropped by 4.2% in Q4 2020. That is compared with the median forecast of a 4.7% drop and the previous month’s decline …

EUR/USD Falls Despite Worse-than-Expected US Employment, Trims Losses After Mixed Services Data

March 3, 2021

EUR/USD attempted to rally intraday but failed and fell below the opening level. The currency pair was trading sideways after data showed that last month’s growth of US employment was just half of what was expected. The pair bounced a little after the release of contradicting reports on the US services sector.…

EUR/USD Starts March with Losses

March 1, 2021

EUR/USD Might Continue Its Way Down Following Ascending Channel Breakout

February 28, 2021 (Last updated on March 3, 2021)

Last week, I posted a bullish flag pattern on the long-term weekly timeframe of EUR/USD. Even though today’s ascending channel on the daily chart seems to contradict the previous formation, in fact, it serves to reinforce it as the current trade setup (if triggered) will play out entirely inside the flag’s consolidation area.…

EUR/USD Erases Week’s Gains on Friday

February 26, 2021

EUR/USD sank today, erasing all of the gains it had managed to acquire during the rest of the week. Some market analysts explained the move by the weakness of global stocks that drove traders towards the safety of the dollar. As for US data, it was largely underwhelming, with the exception of personal income and PCE inflation.
