The EUR/USD is trading without changes

The positive information on the Greece issue has returned optimism to the market and the single currency has blocked all previously incurred losses against the US dollar. The Germany IFO economic expectations indicator rose up to 102.5 in February from the previous 102.0. The Germany IFO Business climate index rose up to 106.8 in February from the previous 106.7 while it was expected 107.7.

The situation within the pair has not changed. The pair continued the range consolidation, limited by the resistance at the level of 1.1440-1.1460 and by the support near 1.1320-1.1340.

The support levels are 1.1200-1.1220, and the resistance levels are 1.1340-1.1360.

MACD is in a neutral territory.

Trading recommendations

A rise above 1.1440-1.1460 will return optimism to bulls and the level of 1.1520-1.1540 breakthrough will mean the larger upward correction development. Risks of the pair fall resumption, the support of 1.1200-1.1220 breakthrough and the low of 1.1100-1.1120 testing are still high as evidenced by the euro inability to overcome the resistance near 1.1440-1.1460.

The bears need to break through the support near 1.5260-1.5280 to achieve this target, thereby reducing the pound to the 52nd figure.
