Keep an eye on EUR/NZD
Information is not investment advice
EUR/NZD formed a number of candlesticks with long lower wicks on the D1 - a sign that there’s demand for the euro around 1.7300. The pair is trying to form a bottom and is currently testing the resistance line connecting October highs. Resistance is also provided by the 200- and 100-periods MAs on the H4 in the 1.7430 area. A break above 1.7440 is needed to open the way up to 1.7490 and 1.7515 (Oct. 30 high). Support lies at 1.7395 (50-day MA). The return below this level may weaken the pair to 1.7350 and 1.7325.
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.
