EUR/GBP is trying to base
Information is not investment advice
Last week, EUR/GBP recovered from 0.8800 (the 61.8% Fibo retracement of the March-August advance) and 0.8835 (100- and 50-week MAs; 200-day MA). This area seems like strong support. In addition, on H4 the euro has already managed to recover above the 50- and 100-period MAs. The advance above 0.8900 will open the way for further correction up to 0.8940 (upper border of the descending channel) and 0.8965 (100-day MA). The decline below 0.8875 will make the pair retest 0.8850 and 0.8835. At these levels, it will be possible once again to consider buying. The longer-term outlook will turn negative only below 0.88.
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.
Oil fell below $52.00 because investors expect a weaker oil demand amid rising Covid-19 infections and new lockdowns.
