EUR/CHF: it’s hard for the euro
Information is not investment advice
EUR/CHF met resistance at the 50-week MA around 1.14. The Moving Average has recently formed a “dead cross” with the 100-week MA. Given the fact that EUR/CHF is overbought on lower timeframes, it will likely turn down towards the middle of the trading range which has been in place since August. The levels to target on the downside are 1.1360 (200-day MA) and 1.1310 (50-day MA).
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.
