EUR / USD. August 15. The trading system “Regression channels”. Weak response from Erdogan and Trump
The senior channel of linear regression: direction – down.
The younger channel of linear regression: direction – down.
Moving average (20, smoothed) – down.
The currency pair EUR / USD resumed the downward movement on August 14 after a minimal upward correction. Thus, the European currency is still in a downward trend. In the meantime, Turkish President Erdogan called on the population to boycott the purchase of American-made goods and move to settlements in lira, instead of the dollar. Honestly, the response of the leader of Turkey to Trump duties is still very weak. It should be understood that the call for a boycott is not specific sanctions or bans that can give concrete results. Given the popularity of Apple’s technology, a very small number of Turkish citizens will really refuse to buy the goods of this brand. Thus, we state the fact: so far there has been no response to the US sanctions from Erdogan. This means that the Turkish lira can continue its decline against the US dollar, and together with the lira and the euro. Today in the US will be published reports on changes in the volume of industrial production and retail sales. However, as we have already said, traders now pay a very indirect attention to any macroeconomic reports. Thus, both US reports should fail today, so that traders would at least fix profit on dollar positions. Otherwise, the downward movement is likely to continue.
