Information is not investment advice
Risk aversion persists and so far there are no signs that the situation will improve. CAD/JPY is a natural pick for trading in this kind of environment. The pair is testing levels below 80.50 - the area that limited the decline in 2017 and 2018. The downtrend continues as we witness the series of lower highs on the chart. The next target on the downside may lie at 79.15 (78.6% Fibo of the 2018-2019 advance).
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.
