CAD/JPY: the stronger yen
Information is not investment advice
The Japanese yen keeps strengthening versus other currencies as the market remains in the risk-averse mode. CAD/JPY is in the long-term downtrend and is now making another leg down. Yesterday the pair failed to close above the 50% Fibo level in the 81.00 area. Today the exchange rate slipped below 61.8% Fibo, and the next target is the 78.6% Fibo level at 80.40.
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.
