EURUSD – Although US Reacted With Non-Farm, It Has Not Been Strong For Now…
The pair reacted slightly after the Non-Farm data from the USA today, but we see that this reaction remained weak and limited. Although the Non-Farm Employment Change in the USA came in just above the 170,000 expectations, we are seeing clear softening in the Unemployment Rate and Average Hourly Earnings.
The pair reacted slightly with this data, which had a negative impact on the US Dollar index. Overall the main intraday resistance was 1.0915 but for now we see that it has not come close. It is priced close to the 200-day average, which is mostly the main support line.
Before 1.0915 is exceeded, it would be technically premature to expect movements in favor of the Euro in the parity to follow a strong course.
Ounce Gold – 1947 Resistance Continues to Struggle on Third Trading Day…
The 1947 resistance continues to be challenged with the continuation of the slight downward trend in the dollar index and the US 10-year bond interest rate in Ounce Gold. A possible daily candle close on 1947 could turn eyes to 1984.
We have two short-term main supports on possible declines. One is 1910 and the other is 1885.
BRENT – Tried 8-Month High…
Brent oil futures continued to rise step by step, reacting after testing the 83.25 support. As of today, it has exceeded the level of 83.10, which was last seen on August 10, and exceeded the highest level seen at the beginning of the year with 83.14. For now, persistence on 83.10 is not provided. However, it is above the 87.50 level, which is the close of the August 10 candle. If he closes the day above the 87.50 level, a strong rise in the meta could be triggered.
Our tracking will be at 87.50 during the day.
