Here are the details of the economic calendar on January 10, 2021:
The Eurozone’s unemployment rate declined from 7.3% to 7.2%, which is a positive signal for the recovery of the labor market, however, it is still significantly higher compared to the United States. Despite the positive data, the currency markets simply ignored them.
Analysis of trading charts from January 10:
The price increases for the EUR/USD pair are still within the 1.1225/1.1355 side channel. Such a long stay in a closed range attracts the abundant attention of speculators. This process will lead to sharp price changes sooner or later, which should be prepared for now.
The GBP/USD pair is moving within the resistance level of 1.3600, where the reduction in the volume of long positions was previously observed. This led to a slowdown in the upward cycle and, as a result, to stagnation.
January 11 economic calendar:
There is nothing on the economic calendar today in terms of statistics, but a number of speeches from the ECB and the Fed are scheduled. Speculators will closely monitor Lagarde and Powell’s words, as this is the only leverage for speculation.
ECB President Lagarde will deliver a speech – 10:20 Universal time
FOMC member Mester’s speech – 14:00 Universal time
FOMC Member George’s speech – 14:30 Universal time
Fed Chairman Powell’s speech – 15:00 Universal time
Trading plan for EUR/USD on January 11:
In this situation, the tactics of trading on a rebound from the set boundaries of the flat are still relevant, but the breakdown method is considered the main strategy. Therefore, traders are already considering the control levels of 1.1220 and 1.1400 as signal levels, relative to which they will perform the main actions in the market.
Trading plan for GBP/USD on January 11:
The resistance level of 1.3600 is still putting pressure on buyers, which may lead to the subsequent formation of amplitude within the borders of 1.3530/1.3600.
The signal for action will be the price retention beyond one or another border of the established stagnation.
Buy positions should be considered after holding the price above the level of 1.3620 in a four-hour period.
Sell positions should be considered after holding the price below the level of 1.3520 in a four-hour period.
