    Technical Checks For EUR/USD, NZD/USD, USD/CAD & USD/CHF: 19.06.2018

    In case if the pair continue trading southwards after 1.1440, the 1.1370, the 1.1330 and the 1.1300 may please the Bears. Assuming that the pair reverses from current levels, the 1.1650 and the 1.1730 can act as immediate resistances before highlighting the 1.1835-50 area for one more time. Alike EURUSD, the NZDUSD is also near to important support-zone, namely the 0.6885-80, but break of which might not trigger the pair’s plunge as an upward slanting trend-line, at 0.6860 now, could still challenge the sellers.

    ECB's Draghi says bank could extend QE if warranted

    European Central Bank President Mario Draghi on Tuesday highlighted the central bank's dovish message on monetary policy, indicating that it could extend its bond-buying program if necessary. The ECB's "anticipated ending of asset purchases in December this year is subject to incoming data confirming the medium-term inflation outlook," Draghi said in speech at the bank's annual economic conference in Sintra, Portugal. The ECB last week said it would purchase €30 billion ($34.6 billion) a month of bonds through the end of September, and if data met its medium-term inflation outlook, it would reduce purchases to €15 billion a month through the end of December, then end them.

    The EUR/USD rejected precisely as planned in yesterday’s analysis. The rejection happened in the POC zone, and the EUR/USD went down. Today, the EUR/USD is trying to close below the trendline for a bearish continuation move. 1h momentum or 4h close below 1.1589 should provide a continuation towards 1.1542 and 1.1521. Two order blocks above are strong resistance points, and EUR/USD can get bullish only above them. However, a test of W L3 – 1.1521 seems likely.
