XAU/USD keeps falling down
Information is not investment advice
Last week XAU/USD made the biggest weekly decline since August. Pay attention to higher timeframes: a “shooting star” candlestick was formed on the MN timeframe after the 4 months of growth. It seems that the gold is finally into the bearish correction.
The weekly pivot point is located at 1305. Sellers will dominate as long as the precious metal is trading below this level. The targets lie at 1278.25 (weekly pivot S1) and 1275 (38.2% Fibo retracement of the August-February advance).
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.
