AUD/JPY is at resistance
Information is not investment advice
AUD/JPY has reached the resistance line which is going down from September highs. The 100-period MA on the H4 chart is about to get below the 200-period one. Both lines limit the price action on the upside, around 72.70. The pattern on the H1 looks like “Spike and Ledge”: the break of the ledge’s lower border at 72.40 will bring the price down to 72.28 and 71.95. The switch to buying will be possible at 72/85, above the resistance line and the recent high. In this case, the target will be at 73.30 (previous resistance area).
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.
