Gold price formed a bearish harmonic ‘Butterfly’ pattern. Still, the detour to $1760 may be the decline it forecasts. In addition, even the pattern allows expecting the increase up to $1780.
NZD/USD aims higher
Information is not investment advice
Market’s risk sentiment is quite positive, so commodity currencies are strengthening versus the USD. NZD/USD has been performing really well since the start of December as it managed to break above the line connecting 2018 and 2019 highs. In addition, last week it closed above the 50-week MA at 0.6580 despite testing lower levels. Moreover, the pair ended Thursday above 78.6% Fibo of the July-October decline at 0.6660. The natural target is at 0.6730 (the declining 100-week MA). The next resistance after that will be at 0.6790 (July high).
Support is at 0.6635 (December 13 high). A decline to 0.6565 (61.8% Fibo) should attract more buyers.
AUD/USD formed an inverted "Head and Shoulders’ and is targeting 0.7815, 0.7840, and 0.7860.
USD/JPY rose to the resistance of the 50-week MA at 106.00. The pair is not at the resistance line since the end of December.
