Currency Summaries

Fxbeat

EUR/USD: The euro edged higher against dollar on Friday, despite data showing the euro zone economy recorded its deepest contraction on record in the second quarter while the bloc’s inflation unexpectedly ticked up in July. The euro traded below $1.10 as recently as May, but after European Union leaders agreed this month to a 750 billion euro economic recovery fund - while also taking on debt jointly in a major boost to regional cooperation many investors have warmed to the currency again. The euro surged to as high as $1.1908 before slipping towards 1.1854  , up 0.1% on the day. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1926 (23.6% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1000 (Psychological level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0802 (38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1792 (38.2% fib).

GBP/USD: The pound rose against dollar on Friday investors continue to shrug off stalled EU-UK talks. Britain and the European Union clashed last week over the chances of securing a free trade agreement, with Brussels deeming it unlikely but London holding out hope one could be reached in September. The pound was last up 0.3% versus the dollar at  1.3146. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3185 (23.6% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3249 (31st Dec 2019 high).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3068 (Daily low), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2968 (38.2%fib).

USD/CHF: The dollar declined against the Swiss franc on Friday as investors fretted that a rebound in the U.S. economy would be derailed by the struggle to stem the coronavirus epidemic. Confidence in the dollar was undermined further after U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday raised the possibility of delaying the November presidential election. That came on the same day advance gross domestic product (GDP) data showed contraction of an annualised 32.9% in the second quarter, the quickest pace since the Great Depression. Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9138 (5 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 0.9161 (38.2% fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9049  (23.6% fib), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9000 (Psychological level).

USD/JPY: The dollar strengthened against the Japanese yen on Friday as pick-up in Chinese factory activity aided riskier bets. Further supporting the risk-on mood was data which showed China’s factories stepped up activity in July for a fifth straight month on improving prospects for electrical and pharmaceutical goods. At (GMT 12:15), greenback was up 0.41% versus the Japanese yen to 0.9774.  Strong resistance can be seen at 105.13 (38.2% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 105.76 (9 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 106.40 (Daily low), a break below could take the pair towards 103.50 (23.6%fib).

Equities Recap

Commodities Recap

Gold rose on Friday and headed for its biggest monthly gain in 8-1/2 years as the impact of the worsening coronavirus pandemic on the U.S. economy hammered the dollar, prompting investors to seek refuge in bullion.

Oil prices rose on Friday and were on track for monthly gains, benefiting from a weaker dollar which continued to be hit by concerns over the recovery of the U.S. economy as the coronavirus ravages economic output.
