EUR/CHF: don’t trust the euro
Information is not investment advice
The upside of EUR/CHF has so far been limited by 1.0975 (the 50-day MA and the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the December decline). On Monday, the pair slipped below 1.0940 (the 100-day MA) resuming the decline that started last week. On the H4, moving averages got in position that is typical for a downtrend. The retest of the resistance in the 1.0940/46 area may thus represent an opportunity to enter a short position targeting the lows in the 1.0920 area and the support line just below 1.0900.
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.
