EUR/USD Mid-Session Technical Analysis for June 12, 2018Based on the early price action, the direction of the EUR/USD the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 1.1811 and 1.1753.
The EUR/USD is trading nearly flat shortly before the release of the U.S. consumer inflation report. The CPI is expected to come in at 0.20% and the Core CPI at 0.01%. A stronger-than-expected report will be supportive for the U.S. Dollar. However, the trade could be muted today ahead of Wednesday’s U.S. Federal Reserve interest rate decision and monetary statement and Thursday’s European Central Bank monetary policy decision.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action, the direction of the EUR/USD the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 1.1811 and 1.1753.
A sustained move over 1.1811 will indicate the presence of buyers. This could lead to a labored rally with minor targets at 1.1822 and 1.1841. The latter is the trigger point for an acceleration to the upside with 1.1997 a potential near-term target.
