The EUR/USD pair is highly recommended for traders who are only beginning to trade Forex. It trades easily by retail traders as well as by Central banks and financial institutions around the world. The most active trading sessions takes place in London and New York and the most commonly used EUR/USD Forex charts are the Daily, 4 Hour and 1 Hour charts.

EUR/USD receives additional interest from volume generated by the Euro-crosses (e.g. euro/British pound (EUR/GBP), EUR/CHF and EUR/JPY. This interest tends to be contrary to the underlying U.S. dollar direction, making it an attractive market for short-term traders.
The EUR/USD pair has been grinding in a choppy manner to the upside for some time now, but what has concerned me about this pair is that there is no real clear movement in one direction or the other, except for the rare occasion.
On the attached chart, you can see that the EUR/CAD pair had a rough week to end the month of March. However, you can also see that I have the 1.50 level drawn just below there on the chart with a horizontal red line, which I believe will serve as a bit of major support for this marketplace.
The EUR/JPY pair had a positive month for February, after getting beat up severely during the month of January. However, and less you look at monthly charts, you may not recognize that the massive selloff during the month of January was essentially a return to the previous breakout level.
This pair seems caught in a long-term consolidation and enjoys only limited price movement, the current signs are that this is likely to continue during February, but a lot will depend upon how this current week closes.
This cross has been established in a strong long-term uptrend since the summer of 2012, and has been rising strongly in its recent leg to reach a five-year high, but it is beginning to show signs of weakening or at least slowing.
The EUR/USD pair fell during the month of January, but you can see still remains locked in a fairly tight range. Essentially, with the exception of a little bit of a breakdown during the illiquid month of December, this market has been stuck between 1.35 and 1.38 for the last four months.
The EUR/USD pair has been a real pain for a lot of traders over the last couple of years. One look at the monthly chart attached, and you can see that we aren’t really in a consolidation area, (rectangle) but we are in something that look consolidative with a slightly negative attitude. In other words, this is an ugly chart.
The EUR/JPY pair has been on fire lately. Because of this, I certainly cannot advocate selling it at all, and as a result I won’t even entertain a short position – no matter how parabolic the market gets.
