Good afternoon, dear traders!

On Thursday, the dollar managed to update the highs in pairs with the euro and the pound which was followed by a similarly sharp retracement. The day was rich in news, so there was no lack of strong movements. From other news, let's emphasize the persisting tensions with regard to Brexit and the possibility of Teresa May's resignation.

Markets have responded rather calmly to the ECB meeting minutes’ release. Sharp movements have started following the release of statistics on unemployment benefits applications in the United States. They've decreased in number, and the dollar began to strengthen against this background.

The situation changed at 18:45 CET, when data on production activity index was issued showing not the best results. In addition, sales of new housing turned to be lower than expected, and buying the dollar has stopped. A reversal was expected to take place.

Two important news to consider on Friday:

13:30 - retail sales in England;

17:30 - durable goods orders in the United States.

EURUSD - waiting for correction to take place and opening deals to buy

On Thursday, weekly minimum was set, but poor data received on new housing sales and business activity decline in the US have weakened the dollar. As a result, a sharp reversal has taken place followed by ​​uncertainty zone 1,1116-1,1120 formation.

The growth was very sharp, but testing the level of 1.1120 hasn't taken place, that means conditions for entering the market weren't fulfilled. Place Buy Limit order at this mark with a stop at 1.1112, and take profit - at 1.1142.

USDJPY - opening deals to sell

During the day the Japanese yen was strengthening against the dollar. Bad statistics on the USA has caused a new wave of the American weakening. At the beginning of another downward movement, an uncertainty zone 109.94-110.00 was formed. It has already been broken through downwards, but its testing hasn't taken place yet.

It is recommended to sell from the resistance at 109.94 with stop placed at 110.04. Take profit for such deals should be located at the level of 109.65.

A moderate strengthening of the British pound is expected

In the first half of the day GBPUSD pair has tested support at 1.2600, but then the drop has stopped. The growth was accompanied by accumulation-distribution zone 1.2642-1.2646 formation. There was an attempt to break it through downwards, but the movement proved to be false.

Strong growth of the pair is not guaranteed, but at correction towards support at the level of 1.2646 one can consider deals to buy. In this case, place take profit at 1.2670 and stop - at 1.2638.

USDCAD - looking for opportunities to sell

On Thursday the US dollar has strengthened against the Canadian, but after the release of statistics on the United States at 19:00 CET retracement from the daily maximum has taken place. This movement was accompanied by the formation of uncertainty zone between the levels of 1,3489-1,3496.
