Forecast and trading signals for EUR/USD on May 28. Analysis of the previous review and the pair's trajectory on Friday

 The EUR/USD pair continued to trade in absolute flat during the penultimate trading day of the week. All day long, the pair's quotes were inside a side channel with a width of 40 points. During the day, several quite interesting macroeconomic reports were published in the United States, but, as we warned yesterday, they absolutely did not interest traders for various reasons. First of all, I would like to note that the GDP volume in the second estimate for the first quarter remained unchanged – 6.4%. It should also be noted that orders for durable goods decreased by 1.2% m/m in April. These were the most important reports of the day and, as we can see, there was no reaction even to them. However, what is there to react to, if the market participants were already familiar with the volume of GDP, and the report on orders for durable goods has not caused any reaction for more than a year, no matter what the figures are. What can we say about the reports on applications for unemployment benefits. They are even less significant than the previous two. Nevertheless, during the day, quite a lot of trading signals were formed and it was even possible to make money on them, despite the flat and very small range of movement of the euro/dollar pair. Let's start in order. The first signal in the form of a rebound from the extreme level of 1.2190 was formed at the beginning of the European session. It should have been used to open long positions. Almost immediately after the opening of the longs, the price returned to the level of 1.2190, but it did not consolidate below, and the Stop Loss was not yet set. Thus, the second signal, also for buying, should simply be ignored, since the longs were already open. Subsequently, the price worked out the nearest target line Kijun-sen and bounced off it, allowing traders to earn about 17 points. At this point, it was necessary to immediately open a deal for sale. The price immediately returned to the level of 1.2190 and settled below it, so the shorts should be kept open. But the downward movement did not continue and the quotes were fixed back above 1.2190, where it was necessary to close short positions manually. The profit on this transaction is another 10-12 points. Further, the price worked out the level of 1.2190 several more times, but all subsequent signals should be ignored, since at that time two false signals were already formed near this level. The price no longer worked out the Kijun-sen line, although it approached it at a distance of 1 point. In total, you could earn about 30 points, which is just fine in a low-volatility flat.

On the hourly timeframe, the flat of the previous day is even better visible. However, the upward trend still persists, and the euro may resume its upward movement at any time. We have already discussed the reasons in our fundamental articles, we recommend that you read the links above. Thus, until the pair's quotes are fixed below the ascending trend line, it makes no sense to think about selling in the medium term. On Friday, we still recommend trading from the important levels and lines that are marked on the hourly timeframe. The nearest important levels at this time are 1.2160, 1.2243 and 1.2267, as well as the Senkou Span B (1.2147) and Kijun-sen (1.2213) lines. The lines of the Ichimoku indicator can move throughout the day, which should be taken into account when searching for trading signals. The signals can be "bounces" and "surmounts" of these levels and lines. Do not forget about placing a Stop Loss order at breakeven if the price has passed in the right direction of 15 points. This will protect you from possible losses if the signal turns out to be false. On Friday, only minor publications are planned in the States, such as the index of personal consumption expenditures or changes in the level of spending and income of the American population. We believe that these reports will be ignored. In the European Union, tomorrow the calendar of macroeconomic events is completely empty.


Signals can be rebounds or breakthroughs of these levels and lines. Do not forget about placing a Stop Loss order at breakeven if the price moves 15-20 points in the right direction. This will protect you against possible losses if the signal turns out to be false.


We also recommend that you familiarize yourself with the forecast and trading signals for the GBP/USD pair.


The EUR/USD pair rose by only 20 points during the last reporting week (May 11-17). The new Commitment of Traders (COT) reports, which was released yesterday in the US, showed that professional traders continue to build up buy positions in the European currency. A total of 10,700 Buy contracts (longs) and 1,600 Sell contracts (shorts) were opened. Thus, the net position increased by another 9,000 contracts. Take note that a few weeks ago the "non-commercial" group of traders, which is considered the most important of all, began to increase purchases of the euro again. We have repeatedly said that we believe the main reason for the euro's growth and the greenback's fall is the flooding of the American economy with dollars. But the COT reports show that the big players are also joining the trend, which is not in their power this time, but in the power of the Federal Reserve and the US government. One way or another, but the demand for the euro is growing, the supply of the dollar is increasing, so wherever you go, there is a wedge everywhere. Recall that around fall 2020, the COT reports showed the end of the upward trend, but either the bears simply lacked the strength and desire for a new downward trend, or the money from the Fed outweighed the scales, but the uptrend resumed. The first indicator eloquently shows that the red and green lines are moving away from each other again, which is a sign of an upward trend. In simpler terms, this means that professional players continue to build up longs, and commercial traders (hedgers) - build up shorts. Therefore, at this time, the COT reports again speak in favor of the fact that the euro will continue to grow.
