Stocks, oil, and risk currencies gained on Tuesday as the formal go-ahead for US President-elect Joe Biden to begin his transition burnished a November already boosted by Covid-19 vaccines.
The week started badly for oil
Information is not investment advice
WTI oil formed a “dark cloud cover” pattern on D1 near the downtrend resistance line. Yesterday’s candlestick was also bearish with a longer upper wick - a sign that sellers are in control of the market. Today the price opened with a bearish gap. It has topped above 53.00 and is once again testing levels below the 200-week MA at 52.60. Last week oil managed to close above this line, so we won’t have big downside targets, but a decline to 51.60 in the short-term looks quite possible.
Notice that to trade WTI, you need to choose WTI-19N in your MetaTrader.
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.
