Bad days for EUR/NZD
Information is not investment advice
Last week EUR/NZD tried to test levels above 1.70 but failed to hold there and ultimately closed at 1.6820, below the 100-week MA. The new week started with the euro testing levels below July low and the 50% retracement of the March-June advance at 1.6795. The next targets are 1.6677 (61.8% Fibo) and 1.65. The short-term outlook will remain negative as long as EUR/NZD is trading below 1.6900 (weekly pivot point).
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.

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.
