On the other hand however, if the Euro is weak and the greenback is strong on the chart, it will push the pair down. Following this logic, there might be several combinations to forecast the market.

Finally, the most important and easiest way to trade this pair is fundamentals. This is the basic and evergreen method of trading any currency pairs on the market. Trading on strong fundamentals might really bring you in the money on a binary options platform. Fundamentals are the data published by various countries across the globe, which determines their specific currencies. For instance, to trade the EUR/USD pair, you would have to constantly monitor fundamentals. For example, if the Eurozone publishes a highly positive Consumer Price Index (CPI) data, the Euro's value will tend to go up and therefore push the EUR/USD pair to the bulls on the chart. However, if data such as the Non-Farm Payrolls released in the United States proves to be high, the dollar might easily overpower the EUR, this pushing the chart to the bulls.
