Currencies summaries

EUR/USD: The euro declined against dollar on Thursday as  U.S. dollar rose , regaining its safe-haven appeal, as investors focused on the resurgence of U.S. coronavirus cases and raised concerns the economy would give back the summer's employment gains. Earlier in the session, the dollar fell as risk appetite increased after data showing the world's largest economy defied expectations for a second month in a row, creating jobs in June at a far faster pace than market forecasts. Despite Thursday's rise, the greenback was on track to post losses for a second straight week against a basket of major currencies. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1300 (23.6% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1354 (Higher BB).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1213 (30 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1162 (38.2%fib).

GBP/USD:  Sterling dipped  against the U.S. dollar on Thursday as   the dollar gained after prospects for economic recovery improved after data showed the U.S. economy created record jobs in June. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 4.8 million jobs in June, the Labor Department’s closely watched monthly employment data showed, the most since the government began keeping records in 1939.Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2528 (38.2% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2600 (Psychological level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2414(11 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2315 (50% fib).

USD/CAD: The Canadian dollar edged higher against its U.S. counterpart on Thursday as domestic data showing a narrower-than-expected trade deficit supported hopes of economic recovery, with the loonie adding to this week's rally. Canada posted a trade deficit of C$677 million in May as exports jumped 6.7%, data from Statistics Canada showed. Analysts had forecast a deficit of C$3 billion. The loonie was trading 0.1% higher at 1.3571 to the greenback, having traded in a range of 1.3560 to 1.3623. Since the start of the week it was up 0.9%. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3625 (38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3726 (Higher BB).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3471 (23.% fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3401 (lower BB).

USD/JPY: The dollar gained against the Japanese yen on Thursday after data showed that U.S. nonfarm payrolls increased by 4.8 million jobs in June, the most since the government started keeping records in 1939. Payrolls rebounded 2.699 million in May. Economists polled had forecast payrolls increasing by 3 million jobs in June. The unemployment rate, meanwhile, fell to 11.1% last month from 13.3% in May. The U.S. currency had also been buffeted earlier in the global session by news a COVID-19 vaccine developed by German biotech firm BioNTech and U.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer had shown potential in early-stage human trials. Strong resistance can be seen at 107.53 (5 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 107.85 (100 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 107.30 (50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 107.00  (Psychological level).
