Currency Summaries

EUR/USD: The euro strengthen against the U.S. dollar on Monday,  as investors' appetite for riskier currencies got a boost after Chinese data showed exports rebounded last month. Signs of economic stabilization in China and a strong start to U.S. corporate earnings season boosted demand for riskier assets, leaving the dollar to turn in its worst weekly performance against the euro in four weeks.The euro was up 0.05 percent at $1.1304. An index that tracks the dollar versus a basket of six major currencies was up 0.08 percent at 96.93. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1323 (Daily High), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1381 (Higher Bollinger Band).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1272  (21 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1257 (9 DMA).

GBP/USD: Sterling strengthened against dollar on Monday, as investors awaited for new Brexit-related developments. Volatility in the pound has collapsed since European Union leaders and the British government last week announced Brexit would be delayed for up to six months.That removed the immediate risk of a no-deal Brexit, but it also raised the possibility of months of uncertainty in Britain as politicians struggle over how  or whether   to leave the EU. Sterling gained 0.23 percent to $1.3094   by 1938 GMT. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3121 (21 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2759 (Dec 10th High).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3009 (23.6% retracement level), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2943 (100 DMA).

USD/CAD: The Canadian dollar weakened  the greenback on Monday, as Canadian dollar was weighed down by weaker oil prices and stronger greenback. The price of oil, one of Canada's major exports, has rallied about 50% since December. But its recent rally was halted on Monday after signals that Russia may exit production cuts. U.S. crude   prices were down 0.7% at $63.44 a barrel. At   (2012 GMT), the Canadian dollar  was last trading at 0.35% lower at 1.3370to the greenback. The currency, which rose 0.5% last week, traded in a range of 1.3298 to 1.3370.Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3400 (Psychological Level), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3436 (Higher Bollinger Bands).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3296 (Daily low), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3278 (Lower Bollinger Band).

USD/JPY: The U.S. dollar gained   against the Japanese yen on Monday,as   signs of stabilisation in the Chinese economy and an upbeat start to the U.S. earnings season prompted investors to abandon the safe-haven assets like Japanese yen. Chinese data published on Friday showed exports rebounded sharply and new bank loans increased far more than expected in March.  Although China's imports remained weak, the data on the whole cemented hopes that the Chinese economy is bottoming out after a soft patch as Beijing has curbed de-leveraging efforts and stepped up support for the economy in recent months.The dollar was 0.14 lower versus the Japanese yen at 113.63. Strong resistance can be seen at 112.09 (38.2% retracement levell), an upside break can trigger rise towards 112.83  (23.6% retracement level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 111.58 (9 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 111.13 (21 DMA).
