The euro gained 15 points on Wednesday, helped by the ongoing divergence in European and US economic indicators for several weeks. Yesterday, European industrial production growth in July showed an increase of 1.5%, and in the US by 0.4%.
On a daily scale chart, the price is slowly reversing upward from the MACD indicator line. The Marlin Oscillator is moving sideways along the zero line - along the border separating the growing and declining trends. This behavior of the oscillator shows that additional external factors are required to continue the euro's growth. Today, it may be the indicator of retail sales in the United States for the last month - the forecast is negative: -0.8% after reducing by 1.1% in July.
We are waiting for the euro to strengthen with the release of the evening data. The task is to overcome the resistance range of 1.1852/58, which will open the second target at 1.1920.
On the four-hour timescale, the Marlin Oscillator has consolidated in a growing trend zone. The price is currently struggling with the resistance by the balance indicator line, breaking above which will make it easier for the price to prepare for an attack on the target range of 1.1852/58.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
