The EURUSD has continued to transfer up and down as the buying and selling week comes to an finish. Recall from Tuesday, the parable sharply larger after the lower-than-expected CPI information. That took the worth up to a excessive of 1.0867. On Thursday, the worth prolonged above that stage however solely to 1.08949.
Today we worth moved down to a brand new low since Tuesday at 1.0824, however that was nonetheless nicely in need of the 200-day shifting common down at 1.08046, and the 100-day shifting common at 1.07905. Staying above these shifting averages retains the patrons in play/in management.
Having mentioned that, what retains the present battle happening between the patrons and sellers is the worth has been buying and selling above and below the 50% midpoint goal of the transfer down from the July excessive. That stage is available in at 1.0861. The worth has moved again above that stage, however is remaining below the Tuesday/Wednesday highs at 1.0867.
