The Forex Zone – US Dollar strength resumes


The US Dollar has seen a strong recovery over the past week in reaction to the early November publication of the October US Employment report, which was very robust. The recovery has been assisted by broadly positive news flow from the US-China trade talks.

The Forex Zone spotlights day trade views for the major Forex rates; EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDCAD, AUDUSD, NZDUSD and USDJPY.

EURUSD: Downside threat to the key 109.89/82 area

A Thursday selloff to reinforce Tuesday’s plunge just below 1.1071/63 supports for a Double Top pattern, to keep risks lower for Friday.

For Today:

  • We see a downside bias for 1.1035; break here aims for 1.1021 and maybe the key 109.89/82 area.
  • But above 1.1092 opens risk up to 1.1117.
