The EUR/USD currency pair
- Prev Open: 1.1818
- Prev Close: 1.1823
- % chg. over the last day: +0.04%
The European Central Bank has kept the interest rate unchanged, but the regulator will cut the bond purchase program in the next quarter. ECB officials made it clear that the economy still needs support as business activity in the Eurozone should return to pre-pandemic levels only at the end of this year, while the spread of the delta strain can delay the full opening of the economy.
- Support levels: 1.1816, 1.1799, 1.1759, 1.1704, 1.1620
- Resistance levels: 1.1854, 1.1894, 1.1934, 1.1969
From a technical point of view, the general trend of the EUR/USD currency pair is bullish, but there is also a corrective downward movement observed on the hourly time frame. The MACD indicator became inactive. Under such market conditions, it is better to look for sell trades from the resistance levels, where sellers show initiative. Buy trades can be considered from the support levels near the moving average, or after the breakout of the downtrend line.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks through the 1.1704 support level and fixes below, the mid-term uptrend will likely be broken.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks through the 1.3692 support level and consolidates below, the bearish scenario will likely resume.

Under such market conditions, traders should look for buy trades from the support level, where buyers show initiative. Sell positions should be considered on the lower time frames from the zones where sellers show initiative.
Alternative scenario: if the price falls below 109.43, the uptrend is likely to be broken.
The USD/CAD currency pair
- Prev Open: 1.2685
- Prev Close: 1.2662
- % chg. over the last day: -0.18%

- Support levels: 1.2641, 1.2583, 1.2518, 1.2425
- Resistance levels: 1.2713, 1.2812, 1.2891, 1.2951
In terms of technical analysis, the trend on the USD/CAD currency pair is bearish. But the price has consolidated in a local correctional upward movement. The MACD indicator shows weak sellers' pressure. It is better to consider sell positions from the resistance levels, where sellers show initiative. Buy positions can be considered with short targets from the support levels where buyers show initiative.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks through the 1.2812 resistance level and fixes above, the uptrend will likely resume.
