The EUR/USD And The GBP/USD Pairs Will Keep Upward Trend Today?

The Entire Movement Od EUR/USD Pair Still Appears More Like A Swing Than A Trend

Details of the economic calendar for September 9

The week ended with an empty macroeconomic calendar. Important statistics in Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States were not published.

Despite the absence of statistical data on Friday, the market continued to show speculative activity. Probably, traders were playing back the decision of the ECB to tighten its own policy.

Analysis of trading charts from September 9

The EUR/USD currency pair strengthened its position during the past week. As a result, the quote went above the two-week range of 0.9900/1.0050.

The cause and effect of the upward cycle lies in the results of the ECB meeting, released last Thursday.

The GBP/USD currency pair gained about 230 points (about 2%) in less than a week. The level of the local low of 2020 (1.1410) serves as a support in the corrective movement.

Economic calendar for September 12

At the opening of the European session, data on UK industrial production was published, which slowed down from 2.4% to 1.1%. This is a negative factor for the country's economy, but based on the trading schedule and the market's reaction to statistical indicators, the pound sterling ignores them.

Important statistics in Europe and the United States are not expected today. However, it is worth paying attention to the sppeches of the representatives of the ECB.

Earlier, interesting statements were already received from representatives of the ECB, which indicate that the regulator should act tougher.

Joachim Nagel (ECB):

- Inflation in Europe could rise above 10% by December.

- The ECB needs to act more aggressively if necessary.

- A recession is possible in Europe.

Klaas Knot (ECB):

- The regulator needs to be more decisive if the situation requires it.

- Some economists have already started talking about a 0.75% rate hike in October.

Yannis Stournaras (ECB):

The ECB has not yet raised the rate to a neutral level. We need to raise it to this level faster. The neutral rate level can be within 1.5%–2%.

Trading plan for EUR/USD on September 12

Since the opening of the new trading week, an upward gap of about 60 points has appeared. This price gap brought the quote back to the highs of last week. With the opening of the European session, the upward cycle accelerated, which led to a move above the 1.0150 level. In this situation, a price impulse of more than 100 points in a short period of time can lead to overheating of long positions in short time periods. This may lead to a technical pullback. At the same time, stable price retention above the 1.0150 mark allows for the subsequent formation of a correction for dollar positions.

There is also an upward gap in the pound, which returned the quote to the high of last week. Subsequently, there was a prolongation of the correction course, where the cycles are similar to the movement of the EURUSD pair. Stable price retention above 1.1650 will eventually lead to an increase in the value of the pound to at least 1.1750.
