Trading plan for EUR/USD on July 18
Speculative downward interest persists in the market, despite a clear signal that the euro is oversold. Thus, a reverse movement to the parity level is still possible. As a result, the amplitude movement can be classified as an accumulation of trading forces.
At the same time, traders consider a correction if the given pullback persists in the market. The next signal to buy the euro will occur when the price holds above 1.0150 in a four-hour period.
Trading plan for GBP/USD on July 18
If the pullback stage slows down relative to the current values, a new round of growth in the volume of short positions is possible. In this case, it allows updating the local low of the downward trend.
The price retention above 1.1950 in a four-hour period will allow traders to consider a prolonged pullback. This move may lead to a further move towards the upper area of the 1.2000/1.2050 psychological level.
In your work, you should consider the indisputable fact of a positive correlation between the EURUSD and GBPUSD trading instruments. In this case, EURUSD is the leader, and GBPUSD is the follower.
