Stocks, oil, and risk currencies gained on Tuesday as the formal go-ahead for US President-elect Joe Biden to begin his transition burnished a November already boosted by Covid-19 vaccines.
AUD/CHF closed higher
Information is not investment advice
On Monday, AUD/CHF broke above the line connecting April and July highs at 0.6785 and managed to close the day above it. The move happened as the market’s risk sentiment improved. In the short-term, the Aussie met resistance at 0.6820. Still, the positive setup we see in Moving Averages on H4 and H1 allows us to believe that the bearish correction will only be temporary and the pair will ultimately reach 0.6860 on the upside (78.6% Fibo of the July-August decline; 100-day MA). The return below 0.6775 will open the way down to 0.6750 (50-day MA).
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
USD/CAD remains within a downtrend. As a result, selling the pair as it turns down from resistance is the best strategy. Support lies at 1.3125.
U.S. stocks are set to open lower later, on a combination of the pandemic news and the downbeat news from Tech’s Old Guard late on Thursday.
Oil fell below $52.00 because investors expect a weaker oil demand amid rising Covid-19 infections and new lockdowns.
