The assets wrap: the best, the worst, and the most volatile

The assets wrap: the best, the worst, and the most volatile

Information is not investment advice

Another week was full of coronavirus fears, which moved the markets a lot. Let’s consider the best and the worst-performing assets as Monday’s session kicks in.

The best performers

If you are a trader of major currency pairs, look at USD/JPY. The pair rose from the 109.85 level towards the resistance at 112.1. If the USD continues strengthening this week, bulls will break the 112.1 level and target the next resistance at 112.85. On the downside, there is a strong support level at 109.72.

Among commodities, the safe-haven gold, as well as palladium, was the main gainer. The price for gold rose from $1,582 to $1,584 last week and has opened with a gap up today, moving even higher to the $1,690 level. The next key resistance will be placed at the highs of November 2012 at $1,730. In case of a risk-on sentiment, wait for the reversal to $1,567.5.

The worst performers

Of course, the Australian and the New Zealand dollars faced pressure amid the risk aversion. The AUD/USD pair was going down and tested the levels below the 0.6618. The next support for the pair lies at 0.6443. Bulls need to push the pair above the 0.6618 level in order to reach the 0.68 level faster.

Also, GBP/USD was among the weakest pairs last week. It fell from the opening price of 1.3034 to the lows at 1.2848. The closest support lies at 1.2832. The next one will be placed at 1.2726. The upside momentum will be limited by the 1.3053 level.
