AUD/USD is driven by the news
Information is not investment advice
The Australian dollar will be quite volatile in the upcoming sessions. The near-term pressure on the Australian currency is related to worse-than-expected retail sales and trade balance figures released in Australia on Thursday. Earlier this week, comments of country’s central bank, on the contrary, had pushed AUD/USD up from the 2019 lows. The RBA Governor Lowe will speak on Friday. In addition, volatility will come from the US side of things, as America will publish Nonfarm Payrolls (NFP). Finally, don’t forget the market’s changeable attitude towards the threat of coronavirus which is also driving the AUD.
So far, AUD/USD met resistance around 0.6775. Still, as long as the pair is above the 50-period MA at 0.6735, it is safe from the decline to 0.6680 (previous minimums). On the upside, the next resistance is in the 0.6800/10 area ahead of 0.6850.
USD/JPY rose to the resistance of the 50-week MA at 106.00. The pair is not at the resistance line since the end of December.
USD/CAD reversed down from 1.2865 last week and formed a candlestick with a long upper wick on the W1.
