The risk sentiment remains under pressure after the comments by China about the countermeasures against the US tariffs. Thus, the AUD/USD and the USD/JPY pairs will be under our attention.
News to trade on December 26
- The US dollar has risen on the Wednesday’s morning after the US president Donald Trump expressed confidence in the US Treasury secretary, Federal Reserve and US economy yesterday. As a result, EUR/USD has dropped to the support at 1.1385.

Otherwise, in case of more uncertainties, the pair will rise towards the resistance at 1.1470.

- On Monday, the price for oil tested the fresh lows. The WTI’s price stuck below the $42.86 level. Any updates on the output cut by OPEC will push the price higher above the $42.86 level to the resistance at $47.49. If the bearish pressure continues, the price for WTI will fall further to the next support at $40.73.
