EUR/USD traded according to our expectations on Friday. There was a downside correction during Asian session and then a weak dynamics after an active growth on Thursday. We advise to pay attention to the Ifo Business Climate data and Janet Yellen speech at Jackson Hole Symposium. Those events will take place on Thursday and Friday. As for the first half of this week, we expect some further correction.

The uptrend is in progress on the Weekly chart as the price is above the MA55. New week promises to be corrective after a sharp momentum, that we have seen the last week. There is a high probability of getting 1,15000 in the next couple of weeks.

There is the uptrend on the Hourly chart as the MA-channel goes upwards and the price is below the MA55. There is a probability of reverse and we do not advise to open long trades. We recommend observing the trendline. If it is broken through, the reverse will be confirmed. Then, you may consider short trades.
