AUD/CHF turned down
Information is not investment advice
AUD/CHF met resistance in the 0.7200 area and then turned down. The pair is currently supported by the 50-day MA at 0.7090. The decline below this level will confirm a lower top, trigger a “Head and Shoulders" pattern and open the way down to 0.7040 and 0.6970 (Fibo levels of the January-February advance). The return above the 100-day MA at 0.7125 is needed to improve the short-term outlook.
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.
