Market Update 12/10/2021
The Greenback continued to strengthen against the EUR during the last week, breaking through the support level of 1.6885 that marked the lower end of the range where the pair was trading despite of NFP numbers falling short of the expectations for the second consecutive month. It seems that the pair is stabilizing around the 1.1540 level for now. We keep the 1.1900 figure as our strong resistance, as per last week’s Market Update.
5 Hour Currency Heatmap
The 5-hour currency Heatmap illustrates the continued strength of the Canadian Dollar, Australian Dollar and New Zealand Dollar, with the latter showing to be the relatively the strongest against all other major currencies. The Japanese Yen is showing the most weakness against the other pairs in the recent days.
After testing the USD/oz 1,745 level during the last two weeks of September, Gold broke through the resistance reaching the lowest point since August just to bounce back above it to continue to trade within the 1,745 – 1,766 range. We keep consistent with our vision of the USD/oz 1,800 as a key psychological resistance level for Gold. The next key level of resistance continues to be at the USD/oz 1,832 level; a break of this may see gold rise in the longer term back.
