EUR/USD: The euro was little changed against the U.S. dollar on Tuesday, as rising concern about a global trade war between United States and China kept investors cautious. A year-long U.S.-China trade war boiled over on Monday as Washington accused Beijing of manipulating its currency after China let the yuan drop to its lowest point in more than a decade.The latest developments have exacerbated concern about the global economic outlook and reinforced expectations for rate cuts and further stimulus measures from major central banks. The euro was down 0.06 percent at $1.1196. An index that tracks the dollar versus a basket of six major currencies was up 0.26 at 97.65. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1238 (50 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1303 (Higher Bollinger Band).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1185 (21 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1138 (9 DMA).
The British pound rebounded against dollar on Tuesday to hold above recent lows, although it remained vulnerable as traders still worry that Britain is headed for a no-deal Brexit. Sterling hit a new, almost two-year low against the euro overnight, with the losses largely down to strength in the single currency rather than more Brexit-related worries.The Guardian newspaper reported late on Monday that Brussels diplomats, briefed after a meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s chief European envoy, said it was clear Johnson had no intention of renegotiating the withdrawal agreement. But markets believe the risk of a no-deal Brexit in October has surged in recent weeks under Johnson, and such fears have hammered the pound to its lowest in more than two years. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2205 (9 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards Sterling rose 0.19% against the dollar to $1.2162 , away from the 31-month low of $1.2080 hit last week 1.2261 (11 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2067 (Lower Bollinger Band), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2000 (Psychological level).
USD/CAD:The Canadian dollar hovered near a six-week low against dollar on Friday, as investors worried about rising trade tensions between the United States and China. A yearlong U.S.-China trade war has boiled over as Washington accused Beijing of manipulating its currency after China let the yuan drop to its lowest point in more than a decade. Meanwhile, the price of oil rebounded slightly on Tuesday from big falls in recent sessions amid escalating trade tensions. U.S. crude oil futures CLc1 were up 0.4% at $54.88 a barrel. At (1951 GMT), the Canadian dollar was trading down 0.55% at 1.3274 to the greenback. The currency traded in a range of 1.3188 to 1.3289. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3294 (Higher Bollinger Band), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3314 (Ichimoku Cloud Top).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3187 (9 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3100 (Psychological level).
USD/JPY: The dollar gained against the Japanese yen on Tuesday, after Washington labelled Beijing a currency manipulator, marking a sharp escalation in the year-long trade dispute between the two economies. However, gains were capped as rising tensions between the United States and China threatened global economic growth. The trade war between the world’s top economies remained close to boiling point, but the heat was reduced enough to steady some nerves when China’s central bank fixed the yuan at a slightly stronger rate .That decision from Beijing, together with Chinese state media saying on Monday local companies suspended their purchases of American agricultural goods, touched off a massive sell-off in stock markets around the world.The dollar was 0.50 percent higher versus the Japanese yen at 106.51. Strong resistance can be seen at 107.08 (Daily High), an upside break can trigger rise towards 107.99 (Ichimoku Cloud Bottom).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 108.33 (23.6 % retracement level), a break below could take the pair towards 112.97 (Ichimoku Cloud Top).
