The volatility has increased in the overall International Forex Market due to present uncertainty throughout the world regarding Russia and Ukraine War and high commodity prices. Our stance is to trade with caution in EUR/USD. The pair can pull back and recover anytime soon if both Russia and Ukraine reached an agreement and Russian troops’ withdrawal starts. The situation can get worse if inflation and commodity prices keep going up. Due to the strong bearish trend on the monthly timeframe, it is recommended to Bulls to avoid going long on the EUR/USD pair with large positions on longer time frames. A Bullish Forex Trader can start accumulating EUR/USD on short-term time frames slowly and if the trend reverses in the coming days’ positions sizes can be increased.
