The importance of accurate Forex data cannot be overstated. If you are relying on certain
support and resistance
(S/R) levels, you need to be absolutely certain those levels are correct. There are many sources of free information including both technical and fundamental analysis.
Besides the normal S/R price levels of Forex, 1.3000, 1.3050, 1.3100, etc., you need to be aware of the "big picture" S/R levels of recent highs and lows.

One of the better sources of free analysis information available to Forex traders is
. They have extensive daily coverage of both
analysis which details the important levels to watch, as well as some excellent education articles which are great for all traders, new or seasoned.
