EUR/USD analysis

Last week the euro staged a notable upside recovery against the US dollar, as the pair started firm above the 1.1700 level.

EUR/USD technical analysis highlights that the pair needs to stabilise above 1.1780 in order to encourage a major push higher towards 1.1870.

EUR/USD medium-term price trend

The EUR/USD pair started to gain traction above 1.1700 last week, as the US Dollar Index gave back a significant portion of its recent gains.

EUR/USD analysis over the medium term shows that buyers need to anchor the price above 1.1780 to attract further technical buying interest.

EUR/USD analysis

The daily time frame shows that a large broadening wedge pattern is located between 1.1780 and 1.2100.

If bulls move the price above 1.1780, and perform a series of daily price closes above this area, then medium-term traders are likely to turn bullish again.

Technical analysis highlights the 1.1840 and 1.1870 levels as the key upside barriers prior to the technically important 1.1900 region.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
