Daily price is located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart: the price is on ranging within the following key support/resistance levels:

  • 1.1283 resistance located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish trend to be resumed, and
  • 1.1122 support level located below Ichimoku cloud in the beginning of the bearish trend to be started.

Descending triangle pattern was formed by the price to be crossed to below for the possible bearish reversal, Absolute Strength indicator is estimating the ranging condition to be continuing, and Trend Strength indicator is evaluating the future possible trend as a primary bearish market condition.

If D1 price breaks 1.1122 support level on close bar so the reversal of the daily price movement from the ranging bullish to the primary bearish market condition will be started.
If D1 price breaks 1.1283 resistance level on close bar from below to above so the bullish trend will be resumed with 1.1366 nearest bullish target to re-enter.
If not so the price will be on bullish ranging within the levels.


  • Recommendation for long: watch close D1 price to break 1.1283 for possible buy trade
  • Recommendation to go short: watch D1 price to break 1.1122 support level for possible sell trade
  • Trading Summary: ranging

Technical Targets for EUR/USD by United Overseas Bank (based on the article)

H4 price is on bullish ranging above 100 SMA/200 SMA area within the following support/resistance levels:

  • 1.1283 resistance level located above 100 SMA/200 SMA in the bullish area of the chart, and
  • 1.1220 support level located near 200 SMA in the beginning of the bearish trend to be started.
The ascending triangle pattern was formed by the price to be broken to above for the possible bullish trend to be resumed but the secondary correction within the primary bullish trend is already started with the price for 1.1234 support level to be tested to below.



Daily price. United Overseas Bank is expecting for this pair to be on ranging within 1.1120/1.1290 levels:

"While the undertone for EUR has improved with the reasonably strong daily closing yesterday, it is premature to expect a sustained up-move. 1.1290 is still acting as strong resistance and even if there is a break above level, EUR is expected to face another solid resistance near 1.1325. That said, for the next few days, the positive undertone would stay intact unless there is a move back below 1.1180."


  • If daily price breaks 1.1283 resistance level on close bar so the bullish trend will be resumed.
  • If daily price breaks 1.1122 support level on close bar so the reversal of the price movement from the ranging bullish to the primary bearish market condition will be started.
  • If not so the price will be on ranging within the levels.

"Consumer confidence increased in September for a second consecutive month and is now at its highest level since the recession,” said Lynn Franco, Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board. “Consumers’ assessment of present-day conditions improved, primarily the result of a more positive view of the labor market. Looking ahead, consumers are more upbeat about the short-term employment outlook, but somewhat neutral about business conditions and income prospects. Overall, consumers continue to rate current conditions favorably and foresee moderate economic expansion in the months ahead."

Orders fell 22% for large commercial aircraft, a volatile category that’s exhibited large swings during the summer. Bookings for new autos rose 0.7%, however. Stripping out transportation, orders sagged 0.4%, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. Demand declined for heavy machinery, computers and electrical equipment. What’s more, shipments of core capital goods, a category used to help determine gross domestic product, fell 0.4% to mark the fourth straight decline."
