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.
USD/MXN came in motion
Information is not investment advice
USD/MXN fell for three days in a row, dived below 50-day MA (19.15) and closed yesterday below the support line going through 2018 lows (19.04). The Mexican peso is supported by the rising oil prices, while the USD weakened ahead of the Fed’s meeting. If the pair slides below 19.00, the next level to watch on the downside will be 18.90 (100-week MA) ahead of 18.75. To recover to 19.15, USD/MZN needs to return above 19.07.
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.
