EUR/CHF is recovering
Information is not investment advice
At the end of March, EUR/CHF tested the lowest levels since the middle of 2017. The fact that the pair went below the support of the 2018 consolidation range (1.1180) and then returned back up was a bear trap. EUR/CHF managed to gather its strength and push higher. On H4 we can see that it returned above the 50-period MA (1.1200) which already acted as support. It looks like the pair has formed an interim bottom and will rise at least to 1.1240/55. The further target is at 1.1310.
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 higher Friday, although gains are likely to be limited with the market set to close early in the aftermath of the Thanksgiving Holiday.
