Aggressive purchases were observed on USD/CAD during this week. The Canadian dollar has weakened against the US dollar by more than 175 points. The currency has reached the 1.3490-1.3525 key offer zone. I don’t exclude a correction on this pair after such a sharp increase in the nearest future. I’ll sell, if the price fixes below the 1.3460 local support. The goal is the 1.3400 round level.
The Canadian dollar hasn’t got through the 1.3460 local support. Te currency was traded in flat. It is testing the 1.3460 mark at the moment. I’m still waiting for a correction. I’ll sell the pair, if the price fixes below this level. Potential movement – to 1.3400.
The pound is flat during the latest sessions. The key range is 1.2770-1.2860. I’ll wait till the price leaves this zone.
I’ll sell GBP/USD, if the price fixes below 1.2770. It can move to the 1.2700 round level.
If it fixes above 1.2860, I’ll buy the pair. The nearest goal for taking profit is 1.2900.
Today’s data about retail sales in the UK can be a good cause for the market volatility.
An interesting technical pattern has appeared on AUD/USD. Today’s trading was opened with gap up. The pair has closed the morning gap and kept the 0.7545 “mirror” support. The MACD histogram is in the positive zone and is continuing to rise. The “Triangle” figure has formed on the market. I plan to buy it, if the price fixes above 0.7565. The goal for taking profit is 0.7590.
USD/JPY has opened with gap up (more than 140 points) today. The technical pattern is ambiguous for me at the moment. I’ve identified the following levels:
Support – 109.85
Resistance – 110.45
I plan to open positions after the price fixes above/below these levels.
In case of the breakthrough of the 110.45 level, I’ll buy USD/JPY. Potential movement - to 110.75-111.00.
I’ll sell it, if the price falls below the 109.85 local support. Potential movement - to 109.35.
