Good Morning, fellas. Welcome to another exciting and busy week. Though this week is going to exhibit thin volatility due to Black Friday but the major central bankers will keep the action continued. Check our Forex Signals Brief for Nov. 20 to have a clear insight about trading signals. This morning, I have a few hot trade setups, especially in the Euro and GBP currency pairs. Check it out …


Top Economic Events Today

Today, the market is focusing on a number of speeches from a couple of central bank's representatives.


Eurozone – EUR

Today at 14:00 & 16:00 (GMT), Draghi is expected to testify on the economy and monetary policy before the European Parliament Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee in Brussels.


Mario Draghi, as head of the ECB, controls short-term interest rates, and he has more influence over the Euro's value than any other person. Traders scrutinize his public engagements as they are often used to drop subtle clues regarding future monetary policy.


Great Britain Pound – GBP

At 18:30 (GMT), the MPC (Monetary Policy Committee) Member Ramsden is due to speak at King's College, in London. Since the audience questions are expected, it can cause slight volatility with any surprising thoughts about next monetary policy. Overall, I'm expecting it to go mute.

EUR/USD – Fibonacci Retracement in Play

Looking at the technical side, the single currency Euro is getting weaker against USD. The bearish engulfing candle is fueling the selling sentiment. However, we still have an opportunity to enter the market.

EURUSD - 4- Hour Chart - Fibonacci Retracement EURUSD – 4- Hour Chart – Fibonacci Retracement 

Have a close look at the 4- hour chart, the EURUSD is likely to find support at 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of $1.1730 and $1.1675 61.8% retracement level.

The idea is to stay bearish below $1.1790 and bullish above $1.1675 with a stop loss below $1.1640 and take profit of $1.1770.


GBP/USD – Choppy Trader

The Sterling isn't doing much but consolidating in a narrow trading of $1.3175 – $1.3270. The pair is entering the oversold zone. On the 4 – hour chart the Stochastic RSI is holding at 23 which is quite close to the oversold zone. For now, the GBP/USD is holding above 50 periods EMA and that's where we can expect a slight buying.
