EUR/USD: The euro dipped against dollar on Monday as coronavirus lockdowns tightened across the world and investors braced for a prolonged period of uncertainty. The euro, sterling and Aussie dollar were all down 0.5% to 1% in London trading, bringing an end to recent rebounds that followed the Federal Reserve’s efforts to calm the rush to own the U.S. currency earlier this month. Concern about the spreading coronavirus and the economic impact of shutdowns continued to dominate foreign exchange markets, but price moves on Monday were relatively well-contained and much smaller than in recent sessions. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1152 (38.2% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1280 (23.6% fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0949 (61.8% fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.0900 (Psychological level).
GBP/USD: Sterling skidded lower against the dollar on Monday, as the greenback reasserted itself as a safe haven for investors amid the coronavirus pandemic and Britain’s economic outlook took another hit in the face of a credit ratings downgrade. The pound rose nearly 7 percent against the dollar last week as measures to inject liquidity into markets by the U.S. Federal Reserve and a $2 trillion stimulus bill passed by the U.S Congress cooled demand for the U.S. currency as a safe haven. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2522 (38.2% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2600 (Psychological level).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2305 (50 % fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2095 (61.8 %fib).
USD/CHF: The dollar edged higher against the Swiss franc on Monday as investors braced for a prolonged period of uncertainty while governments tightened lockdowns to fight the coronavirus. Concerns about the spreading coronavirus and the economic impact of shutdowns continued to dominate foreign exchange markets, but price moves on Monday were relatively well-contained and much smaller than in recent sessions. Immediate resistance can be seen at 0.9580 (61.8% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 0.9655 (27th March).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 0.9500 (50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 0.9424 (38.2% fib).
USD/JPY: The dollar declined against the Japanese yen Monday as recession fears grew across the world as the coronavirus continued to spread across the world. Total deaths are nearly 34,000 and the United States has emerged as the latest epicentre, with more than 137,000 cases and 2,400 deaths. Lockdowns are toughening worldwide and U.S. President Donald Trump, who had talked about reopening the economy for Easter, on Sunday extended guidelines for social restrictions to April 30. Strong resistance can be seen at 108.69(61.8% fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 109.35 (61.8%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 107.07 (23.6 % fib), a break below could take the pair towards 106.69 (18th March low ).
