How the US Non-farm Payrolls would affect the EURUSD today !!!
Before we start let’s highlight support and resistance levels:
1.3000 , 1.3070 , 1.3150, 1.3220 , 1.3300 (current level: 1.3380) 1.3458, 1.3530 , 1.3561 , 1.3627
We have 3 scenarios :
- A reading between 233 K – 288 K will bring a sideways move with bearish bias within 1.3300 -1.3458 range.
- A reading above 288 K will bring a decline towards the 1.3300 levels , a breach is likely to the 1.3220 levels .
- A reading below 233 K will challenge the 1.3458 levels , a break towards the 1.3530 levels is an option ?!!!!
