Economic calendar for November 24

Today, the US market is closed for Thanksgiving Day. That is why banks, funds, and companies do not operate in the country. This means that trading volumes will be reduced.

Besides, today's macroeconomic calendar is bereft of any important releases from Europe and the UK. The only thing you should pay attention to is the accounts of the ECB monetary policy meeting. However, all the key points are already known. Traders may also take notice of speeches by ECB members. Perhaps their comments will be of interest to speculators.

Time targeting

ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts - 3:30 PM UTC +3

ECB Guindos Speech - 2:15 PM UTC +3

ECB Schnabel Speech - 4:00 PM UTC +3

ECB Enria Speech - 4:15 PM UTC +3

EUR/USD trading plan for November 24

Given that the pair has gained strong upside momentum over the past 24 hours, it can be assumed that long positions on the euro are overheated in the intraday timeframe. This suggests that the price will soon slow down the pace of its upward cycle or enter a short-term pullback. The level of 1.0500 still acts as resistance on the way of buyers.

Notably, an overbought signal may be ignored by speculators in the event of an inertial move. If the price consolidates above 1.0500 on the daily chart, the euro may well extend gains.

There is a technical signal that the pound sterling is overbought in the short-term. This means that the British pound is likely to slow down the pace of its upward cycle, which may result in a pullback. However, if the price consolidates above 1.2050, buyers will have every chance of pushing the price further up.
