Forex trading plan for Feb. 20
Greece is the main topic for EUR/USD as it made a request for a 6-month credit which got rejected by Germany. The Eurogroup meeting will take place tomorrow. There are many levels to watch on the upside and the downside. Support for euro is at 1.1355, 1.1330, 1.1270 and 1.1200. Resistance is in the 1.1440/50 area and at 1.1500. Volatility is going to increase as the fate of Greece will be determined in the hours to come. Most traders still expect a last-minute compromise. The euro area will release flash PMI data on Friday.
GBP/USD met resistance at 1.5480 (23.6% Fibo of July-January decline) before more resistance in the 1.5550/5600 area. Watch British retail sales figures at 09:30 GMT (forecast is negative). Support is at 1.5400 and a fall below this level will jeopardize the ongoing positive tone making the pair vulnerable for a decline to 1.5350 and 1.5300.
USD/JPY is now caught between 119.40 and 118.40. The consolidation will likely continue. AUD/USD is capped by strong resistance at 0.7850. Support is at 0.7720 and 0.7625.
