Although the Federal Reserve switched to the dovish stance, the policy of other central banks seems even looser. As a result, the USD gets support versus riskier currencies like the AUD.
Have a look at the weekly chart: AUD/USD is facing resistance in the 0.7130 area, while the candlesticks have long upper wicks. The weekly close below 1.7100 will increase the negative pressure. Conservative traders may sell the pair below 0.7060 targeting support at 0.7020 (October low).
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.
