On August 2, 2017 the maximum price of EURUSD was 1.19101. After this, there were no serious events. Therefore the price of EURUSD did not go higher. The next event, which can move the price even higher, will occur on September 7. This is the interest rate for the EUR (Minimum Bid Rate). The next event, which can seriously change the situation, is the interest rate for the USD (Federal Funds Rate) on September 20.
Therefore, I predict that before September 7 we will have a flat with a range from 1.1640 to 1.1860. The width of the flat is about 200 points. You can apply range trading methods. But after September 7, EURUSD may try to overcome a three-year high (1.19101) or there will be a long-awaited turn down. But this is after September 7, but for now we have a flat.
The interest rate is USD = 1.25%, and the minimum interest rate is EUR = 0%. That is, take a loan more profitable in EUR. Therefore, speculators buy US shares just for EUR. And that's why EURUSD has been going up for 8 months already. Although the last time the US economy is developing well. Over the past 30 years, the unemployment rate in the US is minimal. It would seem that this should positively play in favor of the USD. However, these indicators have not yet affected the chart of the EURUSD pair.

Price on the daily chart is above Ichimoku cloud in the primary bullish trend by the ranging within narrow support/resistance levels:
Ichimoku cloud is coming to be more closer to the market price and 1.1661 level so the bearish reversal may be started earlier than expected for example.
