Stocks, oil, and risk currencies gained on Tuesday as the formal go-ahead for US President-elect Joe Biden to begin his transition burnished a November already boosted by Covid-19 vaccines.
CHF/JPY has some potential
Information is not investment advice
CHF/JPY formed a “bullish engulfing” pattern on the W1. On the smaller timeframes (D1 and H4), the price action very much resembles an inverted “Head and Shoulders” pattern. To aim for the bullish targets, the pair needs to overcome the resistance in the 108.85/109.00 area (moving averages on D1).
Notice that there’s some bearish divergence on H4, so a move lower seems likely before we see any attempt for higher levels. The return below 108.35 will open the way down to the 108.00 area.
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.
