NZD/JPY: watch the resistance
Information is not investment advice
NZD/JPY has performed well this month forming higher lows and highs. It was supported by the 50-day MA in July and took off from that level. The pair has reached the July high at 72.93. Above this level, the next natural one is the 100-day MA in the 73.35 area. The line is going down and will provide resistance. Still, in the short term, it will likely attract the exchange rate.
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.
