Majors Daily Forecast Oct 20 2017


EURUSD Bullish With Caution!

The EURUSD maintained a bullish momentum yesterday, topped at the 1.1857 levels and bottomed at the 1.1767 levels. This development leaves the pair targeting the 1.1895 levels, a halt is likely and may turn lower from here but if this fails to occur, the pair will aim the 1.1935 levels, we might see another hesitation here but a break will pave the way to the 1.2000 levels ahead of the 1.2059 levels.

A failure to break and hold above the 1.1857 levels on a daily closing basis could mean a return to the 1.1767 levels.

On the downside, support comes at the 1.1805 levels ahead of the 1.1767/1.1738 levels (main), below that level will reverse risk to the downside to the 1.1670 levels, further downside, support stands at the 1.1585 levels.

Conclusion: The EURUSD continues to face upside threats above the 1.1738/1.1767 levels.

Today the focus will be on U.S existing home sales followed by FOMC Member Mester Speaks

On the upside, resistance remains at the 1.3325 levels, a daily closing back above this level will turn the focus again on the 1.3350/1.3442 levels…
