CHF/JPY reached long-term resistance
Information is not investment advice
CHF/JPY is trading at the resistance line since September 2018 high. The upside is also limited by the 100-day MA at 108.85. The pair has already violated the short-term support line from October lows when it slipped below 108.60. The further decline below the 50-day MA at 108.35 will bring it down to the 108.00 area. Only the rise above 108.85 will open the way up to the 109.35/50 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.
