We would like to point out, because the Federal Reserve Governor Powell confirmed yesterday that the expectations regarding the American economy are "unconventionally uncertain", expressing that the adoption of more monetary stimulus may be necessary, and it is reported that Powell noted last week during his testimony before the Congress that there is a case of Uncertainty about the timing and strength of the potential economic recovery and that the current downturn may lead to widening inequality within his country if the matter is not contained.
Last week, Powell also mentioned in his semi-annual testimony about monetary policy before the Senate Banking Committee and the House of Representatives Financial Services Committee in the US Congress that "until confidence returns that the Corona pandemic is under control, a full recovery will not be possible" and that "the downward curve continues and with it continues Possibility of jobs falling under the risk of final loss and business closure.

The euro against the dollar pair returns due to the fluctuation between the support levels 1.1175 and the resistance 1.1270, to keep our neutral stance standing until the price is able to penetrate one of these levels and define its next targets more accurately, noting that the conflict between the stochastic positive and the moving average negativity 50 provides another reason for neutrality.
We remind that breaching the mentioned resistance will lead the price to resume the main bullish trend whose next target is at 1.1420, while breaking the support is a negative factor that will force the price to make an additional bearish correction targeting 1.1100 then 1.1020 before any new attempt to rise.
The expected trading range for today is between 1.1140 support and 1.1340 resistance
Expected trend for today: It depends on the levels mentioned in the report
