EUR/USD: The euro declined against the U.S. dollar on Thursday, as single currency under pressure   after a jump in coronavirus cases and deaths reported under a new diagnostic method in China hammered investors’ hopes that the outbreak might soon peak.The death toll from the outbreak in China had reached 1,367 as of the end of Wednesday, up 254 from the previous day. The euro dropped 0.41% against the greenback to $1.0855, the lowest level since May 2017. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0899 (5 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.0955 (11 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0851 (Lower BB), a break below could take the pair towards 1.0800 (Psychological level).

GBP/USD: The pound extended gains on Thursday after the resignation of British finance minister Sajid Javid, as investors bet that his replacement would pave the way for a more expansionary budget next month.Javid turned down the role of finance minister in Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s new cabinet as he was asked to replace all his advisers. The pound rose to Thursday's high of $1.3028, up 0.5% on the day. It also extended its rally against the euro, up 0.6% on the day to 83.37 pence  , its highest since Dec. 16.

USD/CHF: The dollar was little changed against the Swiss franc on Thursday, as investors were cautious after a sharp jump in the death toll and infections from a coronavirus epidemic in China. Though broad risk-off sentiment was the main theme in London trading, traders were looking to take positions in riskier currencies as the jump in new cases was a result of a new approach in diagnosis, aimed at bringing forward the detection timeline and lowering the overall mortality rate. At (GMT 12:36), Greenback gained 0.3% versus the Swiss franc to 0.9772. Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9795 (Higher BB), an upside break can trigger rise towards 0.9800 (Psychological level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9742 (9 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9709 (21 DMA).

USD/JPY: The dollar declined against the Japanese yen on Thursday, as yen gained as investors sought safe havens after China’s Hubei province, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, reported a sharp increase in the number of new cases. Using a new method of diagnosis, the province reported on Thursday 14,840 new cases of the virus as of Feb. 12, up from 1,638 new cases on Tuesday. The number of deaths in the province rose by 242, a daily record, to 1,310. Strong resistance can be seen at 110.02 (7th Feb high), an upside break can trigger rise towards 110.58 (Higher BB).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 109.52 (21 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 109.00 (Psychological level).
