The currency pair declined yesterday because of the better than expected US data, debates between Clinton and Trump, OPEC meeting and FOMC members’ comments. It is to mention that the main OPEC meeting is to take place today. Long trades failed to bring profit. The trend is going to change as we may see the breakthrough of the upside trendline. We advise to try short trades. Pay special attention to 1,11900-1,11920 area. In addition, there are many events to follow today. US durable Goods Orders, Crude Oil Inventories, Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi speeches and so on.
