Forecast for EUR/USD on December 9, 2019

EUR / USD
On Friday, the price returned to the Fibonacci level of 123.6% and under the embedded line of the declining blue price channel, due to excellent data on US employment. At the same time, the breakdown of support occurred exactly at the intersection of these two lines, which is a sign of strong movement, with prospects for further development. The signal line of the Marlin oscillator, in turn, returned to the downward trend zone.
The first target of the movement will be the Fibonacci level of 138.2% at the price of 1.0985. After that, breaking through this support from which the price turned up on November 29 and 14, will open lower targets: 1.0925 (lows of September 12 and 3) and 1.0895. As it moves further, the price will have to fight with the Fibonacci level of 161.8% at the price of 1.0845 and go down to the lower line of the blue price channel in the region of 1.0710.
On the four-hour chart, the price has consolidated below the MACD line; the Marlin oscillator is completely in a downward trend.

Average volatility over the past 5 days: 53p (average).
On Friday, December 6, the EUR/USD currency pair had every chance to continue the not-so-strong upward movement, as the macroeconomic publications planned for this day in America could not reach forecast values well. At the beginning of this week and last week, several macroeconomic reports from the United States have already made market participants nervous and even wonder whether the fed took a pause in the cycle of monetary policy easing too soon? However, as practice has shown, it is not early. The euro fell under serious market pressure and fell to the level of 1.1055, which we designated on Friday morning as the lower limit of the daily trading range for the euro/dollar pair. Thanks to the data received from overseas on Friday.
Let’s start with the least significant Friday report, which, however, is quite important. In October, industrial production in Germany declined by 5.3% yoy and 1.7% mom. Here, even any comments are unnecessary. The only positive thing about this report is that it is an October issue. Nevertheless,…
