Majors Daily Forecast Oct 19 2017

EURUSD Sees Consolidation!

With EURUSD rejected from the 1.1738 levels followed by a break above 1.1795 levels, the focus has been shifted to the 1.1830 levels at the moment. On the upside, a sustained breakout – daily closing above the 1.1830 levels will challenge the 1.1868 levels, a halt could be seen but a break will aim the 1.1935 levels where another hesitation is possible, but if this fails to occur, the pair will extend gains to the 1.2000 levels ahead of the 1.2059 levels.

On the downside, immediate support comes at the 1.1738 levels, below that level will suggest that rise from 1.1769 is over at the 1.1880 levels and a lower leg below 1.1769 could be seen to 1.1585 levels, further down support comes at the 1.1478 levels.

Conclusion: The EURUSD continues to consolidate within 1.1738/1.1868 range before the next move.

Today the focus will be on weekly U.S report on jobless claims as well as  Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index report.
