Details of the economic calendar from July 19

Data on the UK labor market came out not as bad as predicted. The unemployment rate remained at 3.8%, while forecast expected growth to 3.9%. Employment in the country increased by 296,000, while jobless claims fell by 20,000 in June.

These became a catalyst for holding long positions on the pound sterling.

The main event on Tuesday was the data on inflation in the EU, which again set a record. Consumer prices in the eurozone increased by 8.6% year-on-year in June. It is worth noting that inflation exceeds the ECB's target of 2% by more than four times. Thus, at the upcoming meeting of the ECB, the regulator is likely to raise interest rates.

The EURUSD currency pair broke through the resistance level of 1.0150 during the corrective movement. As a result, the market experienced a subsequent increase in the volume of long positions, which led to a prolonged correction. In less than a week, the euro has strengthened in value by more than 300 points. It is a strong price movement, which may lead to an overheating of long positions in the short term.

The GBPUSD currency pair reached the psychological level of 1.2000 during the corrective movement, where it formed a stagnation within its borders. In fact, we still have a tight correlation between EURUSD and GBPUSD.

Stagnation at the peak of the corrective course is a process of accumulation of trading forces. As a result, a new wave of speculation will arise in the market, where, based on the price consolidation points relative to stagnation, the subsequent course of the price will be clear.

We concretize the above into trading signals:

Buy positions on the currency pair should be considered after holding the price above the value of 1.0280 in a four-hour period.

Sell positions should be considered after holding the price below 1.0200 in a four-hour period.

In this situation, the boundaries of the deviation of the psychological level 1.1950//1.2000//1.2050 are the focus of traders' attention. So, holding the price above the value of 1.2060 in a four-hour period will lead to a prolonged correction. Meanwhile, a price return below 1.1920 in a four-hour period may indicate a gradual recovery of dollar positions.
