Currency Summaries

EUR/USD: The euro rose against dollar on Friday, in a move dealers said may have been driven by anticipated currency demand arising from a Japanese bank's plans to purchase a German multi-billion dollar aviation finance business. The common currency jumped late in Friday's Asia session and then extended gains in the European session to a 2-1/2-week high. Markets are often quiet in the hours before European trade opens and thin liquidity has in recent months caused sudden jolts or "flash crashes" in major currencies including the Swiss franc. The euro rose 0.6 percent to $1.1295, its highest since March 26. The common currency also advanced about 0.8 percent to 126.69 yen, its strongest since March 20. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1346 (100 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1386 (Higher Bollinger Band).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1244 (9 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1200 (Psychological level).

GBP/USD: Sterling strengthened against the dollar on Friday, as the immediate risks around Brexit receded after the postponement of the departure date and as the dollar suffered a broad selloff, although collapsing volatility signalled a reluctance to bet big. European Union leaders this week agreed to an up to six-month delay to Brexit, removing the imminent threat of a no-deal exit but also leaving the likelihood of months of political uncertainty in the United Kingdom. Sterling rose to $1.3130,up 0.6 percent. The pound remains stuck in a recent trading range, and having strengthened in 2019 Hardman said that without fresh cues on the Brexit outcome the British currency was unlikely to move significantly higher. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.13128 (21 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3266 (Higher Bollinger Band).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2987 (April 5th low), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2943 (100 DMA).

USD/CAD: The Canadian dollar strengthened against its U.S. counterpart on Friday and was on track to end higher for the week as oil prices rose and data showed signs of stabilization in China's economy. China’s exports rebounded in March but imports shrank for a fourth straight month and at a sharper pace, painting a mixed picture of the economy as trade talks with the United States reach their endgame. Oil prices rose on Friday as involuntary supply cuts from Venezuela, Libya and Iran supported perceptions of a tightening market, already underpinned by a production reduction deal from OPEC and its allies. U.S. crude oil futures were up 1.1% at $64.27 a barrel.  The Canadian dollar was last trading 0.5% higher at 1.3332 to the greenback. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3398 (50% retracement level), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3450 (March 28th high).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3298 (50 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3274 (Lower Bollinger Band).

USD/JPY: The U.S. dollar strengthened against the yen on Friday, as strong U.S. labour and inflation data soothed concerns about the world's largest economy. The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits fell to a 49-1/2-year low last week, pointing to sustained labor market strength that could temper expectations of a sharp slowdown in economic growth. U.S. producer prices increased by the most in five months in March, but underlying wholesale inflation was tame.The dollar was 0.34 higher versus the Japanese yen at 112.01. Strong resistance can be seen at 112.09 (38.2% retracement level), an upside break can trigger rise towards 112.86 (23.6% retracement level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 111.47 (50% retracement level), a break below could take the pair towards 110.92 (61.8% retracement level).

Dow Jones closed up by 1.03 percent, S&P 500 ended up 0.66 percent, Nasdaq finished the day up by 0.46 percent.

Brent crude oil futures  rallied 99 cents, or 1.4 percent, to $71.82 a barrel by (1805 GMT).U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures rose 66 cents, or 1 percent, to $64.24 a barrel.

Gold inched lower on Friday, having posted its biggest daily decline in two weeks in the previous session, as the impact of a weak dollar was offset by gains on Wall Street.
