The speech of the new US president after his inauguration added to the pessimistic mood of investors and caused the next drop of the US currency. The euro started growing in price. Volatility in the market is very instable as investors expect the drop of the business activity rate in Germany.

On Monday during the morning trades the euro grew till the level 1,0750, but did not manage to grow more. After  testing the level, the currency pair EUR / USD started dropping. Before the American session opened, the euro had continued falling.

The support is located at the level 1,0700, the resistance – at the level 1,0750.

MACD is growing, which is the evidence that the sellers are taking over the control in the market. RSI stays in the overbought zone.

If the currency pair EURUSD manages to grow above the level 1,0750, its further growth to the level 1,0800 is expected. If the pair doesn’t manage to pass the level 1,0750, we can expect the pair`s drop to the level 1,0650.




On Monday the British currency recovered the losses of the previous trades. Though the pound growth was caused rather not by the economic situation in Great Britain but by the weakness of the American currency after the speech of the new president.

The support is located at the level 1,2400, the resistance – at the level 1,2500.

Most likely, the currency pair EURUSD will be traded in the ascending movement. If the currency pair manages to pass the level 1,2500, then the next target will move to the level 1,2550.




At the start of the trading week the American currency fell in relation to the Japanese yen. This was caused by the worries regarding the economic policy of Donald Trump.

During the Asian session the currency pair USDJPY stopped for a while by the mark 113,00 and then continued growing till the level 114,00.

The support is located at the level 113,00, the resistance – at the level 114,00.
