Information is not investment advice
The market awaits the release of the US nonfarm payrolls at 15:30 MT time today. According to the consensus forecast, there will be a slight improvement in the American economic figures. To bet on the data that are in line with this forecast or better than it, one can make a bearish bet on AUD/USD.
The pair failed to close above the declining 100-day MA on Thursday forming a candle which is very similar to a “shooting star”. In addition, AUD/USD met the downtrend resistance line since 2018. As a result, the way down is the easiest path for the AUD.
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.
