Current situation:

Major currencies are trading in positive territory against the dollar except for the Aussie. EUR/USD has recovered to $ 1.1607 and is trading at $ 1.1599.

The focus of traders' attention has shifted to the speeches of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey, ECB Governor K Lagarde for fresh hints on monetary policy.

Investors are also paying great attention to who will become the head of the US Federal Reserve in 2022. Biden will decide on the head of the Fed for Thanksgiving. The main contenders for the post of head of the Federal Reserve are Leil Brainard and Jerome Powell. Experts believe that if Leil Brainard becomes the head, the dollar will be undermined.

On Thursday, the US will release a report with data on consumer inflation. The data should indicate the future steps of the US Federal Reserve regarding monetary policy.


Technical analysis:

The dollar index broke through two levels of 94.15 and 94.03. Against the backdrop of an appreciation of the euro, there are risks of falling to 93.82. EUR/USD recovered to 1.1606. Growth has slowed down near the resistance, which is the upper line of the channel (it is built on three values: 1.1535-1.1513 and 1.1616).

From the low of 1.1513 to 1.1606, the rally has a five-wave structure in the form of an initial diagonal triangle. If there is no sharp decline before the close of the European session, then we are preparing for an increase to 1.1650. Supports are two levels 1.1590 and 1.1575.

Summary: on Monday, the EUR/USD pair closed with growth. Buyers met resistance at 1.1606. The focus of traders' attention shifted to the speeches of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey, ECB Governor K Lagarde. A surge in volatility is expected after the release of the ZEW indices and the speech of K. Lagarde.
