The EUR/USD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 1.1565
  • Prev Close: 1.1553
  • % chg. over the last day: -0.10%

The European Commission will consider joint gas purchases for EU countries as a response to the energy price hike. European companies are switching to the tight coal market due to soaring gas prices, but coal prices are also breaking records. Europe's energy crisis could accelerate inflation in the region.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.1502, 1.1453
  • Resistance levels: 1.1583, 1.1671, 1.1717, 1.1772, 1.1802, 1.1835

From the technical point of view, the EUR/USD trend is bearish. The MACD indicator has become inactive. The price is trading in a corridor. Under such market conditions, traders should consider sell deals from the resistance levels near the moving average. Buy trades should be considered only from the support levels with additional confirmation in the form of a buyers' initiative.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.1671 resistance level and fixes above, the mid-term uptrend will likely resume.

  • Prev Open: 1.3609
  • Prev Close: 1.3594
  • % chg. over the last day: -0.11%

The UK considers helping industries hit by high energy prices. Global bank analysts believe that the Bank of England will raise interest rates by 15 basis points as early as this December.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.3584, 1.3532, 1.3457, 1.3360, 1.3282
  • Resistance levels: 1.3626, 1.3685, 1.3759, 1.3812, 1.3886

On the hourly time frame, the GBP/USD trend is bearish. However, the British currency looks more confident than the euro due to its direct correlation with oil prices. The MACD indicator has turned negative. The price broke down the triangle pattern. Buy trades should be considered only within the day and after the initiative price returns to the triangle. It is best to look for sell trades from the nearest resistance levels.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.3759 resistance level and consolidates above, the bullish scenario is likely to resume.

The producer price index, which reflects the inflation rate for corporate goods or business-to-business inflation, reached 6.3% (previous value 5.8%), the highest level since August 2008.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 112.19, 111.53, 110.99, 110.65, 109.95, 109.63
  • Resistance levels: 113.35

The main trend of the USD/JPY currency pair is bullish. The Japanese yen is rapidly declining against the US dollar; the last time such a price was in 2019. The MACD indicator is positive. There are signs of overbuying, but no signs of reversal. Under such market conditions, it’s better to look for buy positions from the support levels near the moving average, since the price has deviated greatly from the average line. Sell positions should be considered only throughout the day from the resistance levels, given there is sellers' initiative.

Alternative scenario: if the price falls below 110.99, the uptrend is likely to be broken.

The USD/CAD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 1.2475
  • Prev Close: 1.2479
  • % chg. over the last day: +0.03%

The Canadian dollar is a commodity currency, so USD/CAD is highly dependent on the dynamics of the dollar index and oil prices. The dollar index declined slightly yesterday, while oil prices remained at the same level. As a result, the USD/CAD currency pair is trading flat.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 1.2425
  • Resistance levels: 1.2518, 1.2565, 1.2628, 1.2729, 1.2774, 1.2891

From the technical point of view, the trend of the USD/CAD currency pair is bearish. Liquidity compression occurred in the direction of sales last week. The downtrend has accelerated. But now the price is trading flat. The MACD indicator has become inactive, but there are signs of divergence on higher timeframes. Under such market conditions, it is better to look for sell deals from the resistance levels near the moving average, as the price has strongly deviated from the average values. Buy trades should be considered only on lower timeframes from the support levels, if there is the buyer’s initiative.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.2628 resistance level and fixes above, the uptrend will likely resume.
