Here are the details of the economic calendar for Sept 13:
Yesterday's economic calendar was empty – no important statistics were released in Europe, Britain, and the United States.In most cases, Monday will not contain important statistics in the economic calendar, but this does not mean that the market will stand in one place that day.
Analysis of trading charts from September 13:
The downward cycle from the resistance area 1.1880/1.1905 slowed down within the level of 1.1770, where the Euro had a chance to strengthen its positions. The subsequent pullback returned the quote above the 1.1800 level, while not breaking the downward cycle.
In this situation, special attention is paid to the decline, since it is considered the main one in the market. This is clearly seen on the four-hour chart of the EUR/USD pair, where all subsequent price fluctuations are in its structure.
The GBP/USD pair returned to the area of 1.3800 after the price rebound from the resistance level of 1.3880, where market participants did not manage to stay below it. As a result, there was an amplitude movement between the levels.
It can be noted that the looped movement in the range of 1.3800/1.3880 indicates a slowdown in the correction from the local low of 1.3600. This may well signal a change in trading interests.
* The resistance level is the so-called price level, from which the quote can slow down or stop the upward movement. The principle of constructing this level is to reduce the price stop points on the history of the chart, where the price reversal in the market has already occurred earlier.
* A change of trading interests is when there is a change of direction in the market from ascending to descending or from descending to ascending.
