Technical tips

EUR/USD

EUR/USD is trading inside of the channel. Since it has touched the lower trendline, the move up is quite possible. However, the fresh virus outbreak in Europe may weigh on the single-area currency.  If it manages to close above the 200-day moving average, the way to the key psychological mark of 1.1800 will be clear. On the flip side, if it drops below yesterday’s low of 1.1730, it may fall to the key support of 1.1700. Follow the ECB report and press conference as it will impact the euro.

USD/CAD

The Canadian dollar dipped yesterday amid the risk-averse sentiment, lower oil prices, and BOC’s report. Today the loonie is trying to rebound from its losses. If USD/CAD manages to drop below the low of October 6 at 1.3250, it may fall to the 200-period moving average of 1.3230. In the opposite scenario, the move above yesterday’s high of 1.3320 will drive the pair to October’s peak of 1.3340.

USD/JPY

USD/JPY is taking a break after falling. If USD/JPY drops below yesterday’s low of 104.20, the way to the key psychological mark of 104.00 will be open. Otherwise, the move above the resistance of 104.50 will drive the pair to the high of October 22 at 104.85.

XAU/USD bounced off the support of $1 875, but if it manages to fall below it, the way to $1 850 will be clear. On the flip side, the move above the 100-period moving average of $1 890 will drive the yellow metal to the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of $1 900.
