USD/JPY can test higher levels
Information is not investment advice
Have a look at the daily chart of USD/JPY: the 50-day MA went above the 100-day MA, while the pair has once again risen above the 200-day MA at 111.50. Earlier the pair failed to hold at this level. This time, however, given the fast recovery from the support at 111.00, it may be more successful as there’s a scope for an advance to the 2018 resistance line at 112.80.
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.

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.
