How to trade EUR/USD on November 24. Simple trading tips for beginners. EUR in search of direction

 The EUR/USD pair was trading steadily on Tuesday, with its downtrend put on a halt. The new descending channel means that the downtrend is still in place. But just a couple of days ago, the quotes crossed the descending trendline. So, the current downtrend channel is strong but not relevant at the same time. This is due to the nature of the pair movement:it can be trading flat for several days and then fall sharply. At the moment of a flat movement, the quotes can leave the channel or overcome the trendline, which is misleading. However, strong signals can appear near the upper boundary of the channel, depending on whether the rebound or a breakout occurs. It should also be noted that today's macroeconomic data turned out to be rather weak and there was no reaction to it. This is exactly what we warned you about yesterday.


On the 5-minute time frame, the trajectory on Tuesday was very close to a flat movement. At the same time, a lot of signals were generated, some of which could have brought profit. The level of 1.1231 is the low of the previous day, which was formed after our yesterday's review. Today, a buy signal was formed near this level early in the morning as the price bounced off it. This signal was not strong but traders could still use it. The upward movement ended near the level of 1.1259, from which the price rebounded later. Therefore, at this point, beginners had to close long positions and open short ones. The profit on the long position was 12 pips. Unfortunately, the sell signal did not bring any profit as the pair failed to reach the level of 1.1231 and only went down by 15 pips. However, this was enough to place a Stop Loss order at a breakeven level. The trade was closed as the order was triggered as soon as the pair had consolidated above the level of 1.1264. Traders should have opened new long positions at this point. Yet, they were closed with a loss of 15 pips since the price dropped below the level of 1.1259. All signals that followed after that also formed near the levels of 1.1259 and 1.1264. So, they should not have been used anymore as two false signals had already been generated near them.


Trading tips for Wednesday


On the 30-minute time frame, the downtrend prevails. Thus, the downward movement is likely to continue. Therefore, selling the instrument should be a priority in any trading system before the price settles above the channel. On the 5-minute timeframe, the key levels for November 24 are 1.1192, 1.1231, 1.1259 - 1.1264, and 1.1316. Take Profit should be set at a distance of 30-40 points. Stop Loss should be placed to a breakeven point as soon as the price passes 15 pips in the right direction. On the M5 chart, the nearest level could serve as a target unless it is located too close or too far away. If it is, then you should act according to the situation or trade with a Take Profit. On Wednesday, there will be plenty of important reports and events, and most of them – in the US. Thus, novice traders will have to carefully watch the data on durable goods orders, GDP, and personal income and expenses. In the evening, when all trades should be closed, the Fed's minutes from the last meeting will be published.
