EUR/USD ahead of NFP
Information is not investment advice
EUR/USD spiked towards 1.1265 this week but failed to overcome the declining 50-day MA. The pair formed a “shooting star” candlestick and fell. Yet, only now has the euro got to the weekly pivot point at 1.1170. The decline below this level will make the pair slide towards 1.1080 and 1.1020.
The fact that the euro area’s economic figures remain weak, while the US Federal Reserve pulled back the expectations of a rate cut this year, represents another argument for selling EUR/USD. The US Nonfarm Payrolls data at 15:30 MT time will increase volatility.
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.
