Currency Summaries

EUR/USD: The euro fell to a one-week low against the greenback on Wednesday, a day before the European Central Bank is expected to add further stimulus in a bid to boost the region’s economy. ECB policymakers are leaning toward a package that includes a rate cut, a beefed-up pledge to keep rates low for longer and compensation for banks over the side-effects of negative rates, five sources familiar with the discussion said last week.Many also favor restarting asset buys, but opposition from some northern European countries is complicating this issue. The euro was down 0.43 percent at $1.0996. An index that tracks the dollar versus a basket of six major currencies was down 0.30 at 98.30. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1058 (21 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1086 (Sep 5th high).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0964 (lower BB),a break below could take the pair towards 1.0900 (Psychological level).

GBP/USD: Sterling strengthened against dollar on Wednesday, as investors assessed the chances Prime Minister Boris Johnson can strike a Brexit deal with the European Union before Oct. 31.The probability of a no-deal Brexit was still very much a concern for traders, given that Johnson stood firm on taking Britain out of the EU by the end of next month.But the British parliament approved legislation which forces Johnson to request a deadline extension from Brussels if he cannot agree on a deal with the EU by mid-October. Investors, calculating that the risk of no-deal Brexit is receding after the law passed, have pushed sterling from under $1.20, the three-year low it reached early last week, to as high as $1.2385 on Monday. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2394 (Higher BB), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2400 (Psychological level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2278 (50 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2224 (11 DMA).

USD/CAD: The Canadian dollar was little changed against its U.S. counterpart on Wednesday, holding near a six-week high it notched the day before, as oil prices rose and domestic data showed higher than expected industrial capacity usage. Canadian industries ran at 83.3% of capacity in the second quarter of 2019, up from an upwardly revised 81.1% in the first quarter, Statistics Canada said. Economists had forecast a rate of 81.8%. The Canadian dollar was trading 0.1% higher at 1.3162 to the greenback, or 75.98 U.S. cents. The currency, which on Monday notched its strongest since July 31 at 1.3140, traded in a range of 1.3161 to 1.3191.Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3234 (9 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3246 (11 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3130 (lower BB), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3100  (Psychological level).

USD/JPY: The U.S. dollar strengthened against the yen on Wednesday, as demand for safe-haven assets continued to diminish on the back of rising risk appetite. The yen had rocketed towards a 2019 high as investors in August fretted about the prospect of a global recession and selloff. Forex traders often buy the yen in times of uncertainty because of Japan’s vast current account surplus and because they believe Japanese investors will bring their money home when international markets tumble. But with broader stock markets recovering on hopes of easing U.S.-China tensions and diminishing risks of a no-deal Brexit before several key central bank meetings, the yen is now weakening. Strong resistance can be seen at 107.88 (Daily high), an upside break can trigger rise towards 108.00 (Psychological level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 107.16 (50 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 106 .70 (11 DMA).
