Learn how to trade EURUSD, the largest and most traded currency pair in the entire world. The Euro is so heavily traded due to massive economies in the United States, and European union. The need for high volumes of currency exchange between these two areas makes the EURUSD a very popular currency pair to trade. The high trading volume in this pair makes it an attractive market to trade - for both experienced and new traders. One major advantage of trading the EURUSD is that this high trading volume usually leads to tighter spreads (and hence lower trading costs + easier execution!)
Fundamental Trading Tips
When trading the EURUSD, fundamental analysis plays a large role.
A major component to the Euro rising or falling has to do with the central bank policies of each respective economy. If the dollar for example is hawkish, and has a strong outlook for the US economy, it is possible to see the Euro fall, causing the currency pair to fall.
If the Euro is strong, and/or the dollar is weak, we would expect to see weakening unemployment in the US, and/or strong figures coming from the Euro region in things like inflation (CPI), retail sales, unemployment, etc.
Technical Trading Tips
When trading the EURUSD, technical analysis can be a useful tool to help with entries and exits. The EURUSD shifts from being a back and forth, choppy market, to a strongly trending market.
In times of back and forth, lazy price action, the EURUSD can be a great range bound market to trade. Simple Bollinger band, and support and resistance concepts can work great when employed properly during this time.
When the EURUSD is in a trending state, watch for breakouts on the higher timeframes, and pullbacks to key levels of support or resistance.

Statistics Canada released a surprising new batch of inflation data this morning: month-over-month CPI failed to meet market forecasts, declining by 0.3% instead of the anticipated 0.1%. Rather than being an outlier, the other measurements of CPI mostly followed suit, as both year-over-year Trimmed CPI and Median CPI likewise failed to meet expectations. Trimmed CPI’s […]
