    Brent. November 25, 2020 – Oil continues to renew highs

    The oil market continues to grow, hitting multi-month highs. Brent is currently quoted at $48.50 per barrel.

    Prices are supported by hopes for improved economic outlook and increased demand for hydrocarbons. Pharmaceutical companies continue to share positive news of the success of the Covid vaccines, boosting hopes for a fast global recovery and resumption of international travel.

    Additional support for oil was also provided by the results of the recent US presidential election, which was won by the representative of the Democratic Party, Joe Biden. The political uncertainty surrounding the elections has significantly decreased, which has given strength to risky assets, which traditionally include oil.

    EUR/USD. November 25, 2020 – Euro has renewed its maximum in early September

    On Wednesday morning, the EUR/USD pair rose to 1.1930, hitting the high of early September. The European currency is supported by hopes that the coronavirus pandemic will be defeated in the near future. Markets are in anticipation of the imminent production of the Covid vaccine and the recovery of the global economy.

    At the same time, the pressure on the dollar came from a weaker than expected value of the US consumer confidence index from the Conference Board. In November, the indicator fell to 96.1 points against the forecast of 97.7 and the previous value of 100.9 points. The current value has become the lowest in the last three months. Such data indicate that the stability of the labor market and the general state of the economy are still far from ideal.

    From such data, it can also be concluded that retail sales in December-January will be weaker than forecasts (simply due to less optimism of buyers).

    An additional influence on the dynamics of the pair is provided by the news about the readiness of the administration of US President Donald Trump to begin the process of transferring power to Joe Biden.

    Today you should pay attention to the block of statistics from the US: GDP for the III quarter, the volume of orders for durable goods in October, the balance of foreign trade in goods for October and the number of initial claims for unemployment benefits in October.

    EUR/USD. November 26, 2020 – Euro will continue to rally

    Yesterday, the EUR/USD pair renewed its early September high at 1.1940, later declining to 1.1900.

    The European currency is supported by optimistic investor sentiment: the markets expect that an effective Covid vaccine will appear in the near future, which can contribute to a rapid recovery of the global economy.

    The short-term strengthening of the dollar yesterday was caused by strong data on new home sales in October: the indicator rose to 999 thousand against the September value of 959 thousand. The positive statistics ended there, and the rest of the US data only disappointed the markets.

    In particular, the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits rose again over the week, from 748 thousand to 778 thousand. The GDP level for the third quarter did not change against the previous figure and amounted to 33.1%, which is worse than the forecasted 33.2%. Most disappointing was the data on personal incomes of American households, which fell 0.7% m / m. At the same time, costs increased by 0.5% m / m.

    Moreover, at the end of the day, the minutes of the last meeting of the US Federal Reserve System were published, which indicated that the regulator's course was maintained for further easing of monetary policy. Considering all that has been said, we can conclude that the «rally» of the euro will continue in the near future.

    Brent. November 27, 2020 – Oil is correcting after an upward rally

    Yesterday Brent began to decline, interrupting the upward rally. Prices failed to hold on to the reached maximum near $49 per barrel and retreated to $47.45. The current quotation is $48.40 per barrel.

    Most likely, the driver of the decline was the news that Venezuela, despite the US sanctions, resumed oil supplies to China. This once again caused investors to worry about a possible oversupply of oil.

    The Venezuelan state-owned company PdVSA signed a contract with China to resume oil supplies in August this year. And after the publication of the results of the US presidential election, Venezuela apparently decided to ignore Trump's sanctions.

    Today is a quiet trading day as the United States continues to celebrate Thanksgiving. Brent will fluctuate weakly around $48.50 a barrel.

    EUR/USD. November 27, 2020 – Euro is trading above 1.1900

    On Friday, the EUR/USD pair resumed its growth: the current quotation of the asset is 1.1920. Thanksgiving weekend continues in the US, so the dynamics of trading today is rather sluggish.

    The euro is strengthening, despite weak data from Germany, published yesterday. The consumer climate index in Germany from the GfK institute for December fell to -6.7 points from -3.1 earlier. This is even worse than predicted, suggesting that consumer sentiment is becoming increasingly pessimistic.

    The index of economic expectations fell to -0.2 points from the previous 7.3, which was the worst value since May this year.

    Today the macroeconomic calendar is almost empty and the EUR/USD pair will continue to fluctuate slightly above the 1.19 level.

    EUR/USD. November 30, 2020 – Euro continues to rally

    The European currency demonstrates steady growth in the trading on Monday, renewing September highs and coming close to strong psychological resistance at 1.20. The current quote for the EUR/USD pair is 1.1983.

    The euro is growing despite the negative statistics released last Friday. In particular, the indicator of sentiment in the eurozone services sector in November fell from -12.1 to -17.3 points, while analysts had expected a fall only to -15.5 points. The level of consumer confidence for the same period decreased from -15.5 to -17.6 points.

    The main reason for the growth of the EUR/USD pair can be called the general weakness of the US dollar against the background of persisting significant epidemiological risks. In addition, investors expect that with the arrival of the new Joe Biden administration, long-awaited economic reforms will take place, and urgent programs to help the American economy will be approved. And that won't do the dollar any good.

    Today we should pay attention to the speech of the head of the ECB Christine Lagarde, the consumer price index for November in Germany, as well as data on the volume of pending home sales in the United States in October.

    GBP/USD. November 01, 2020 – The pound is confidently approaching the level of 1.3300

    The British currency continues to show a decline from the 1.3400 highs area. The current quote for the pair is 1.3315.

    Investors are still awaiting progress in the Brexit negotiations. Earlier, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, noted that the fate of the trade agreement will be decided this week, while the EU is ready to exit without a deal with Great Britain.

    Yesterday, the dynamics of the pound was also affected by economic reports: the volume of consumer lending in October fell by 0.6 billion pounds, but the total number of approved applications increased from 91.454 to 97.5 thousand.

    Today we should pay attention to the November house price index from Nationwide and the PMI of the manufacturing sector in the UK. Business activity in the country remained at 55.6 points, while analysts predicted the figure at 55.2. In the US, the manufacturing PMI will also be published and Jerome Powell will speak.

    Brent. December 02,2020 – Oil declines after postponing OPEC+ meeting

    During trading on Wednesday, oil recovered somewhat after falling to $46.90 per barrel. The current Brent quote is $47.30.

    The pressure on prices increased after OPEC+ postponed until Thursday the final decision on oil production quotas, which will operate from January 1, 2021. The oil cartel was supposed to make the appropriate decision on Tuesday.

    Currently, the cumulative reduction in oil production by the alliance countries is 7.7 million barrels per day. OPEC+ planned that from January production will increase by 2 million barrels per day. However, the countries did not reach a consensus during the meeting on Monday due to persistent disagreements between Saudi Arabia and the UAE over countries that were in bad faith in fulfilling the terms of the deal, in particular Russia.

    Market participants are looking forward to the outcome of the next meeting: the most likely outcome will be an extension of the current terms of the deal by three months. However, this is unlikely to be enough to offset the negative impact on demand amid the deteriorating situation with the coronavirus in the world, so the sales in the oil market are likely to continue.

    EUR/USD. December 3, 2020 – Euro updated its April 2018 high

    Quotes of the EUR/USD pair continue to update their highs: the current price of the euro is 1.2125. The last time the couple was at such heights at the end of April 2018.

    The euro is being supported by investors' hopes that the US authorities are about to start supporting the economy. After the Democrats and Republicans in the US Congress agreed on the size of the fiscal stimulus program in the amount of $ 908 billion, the markets returned to the hope that support will be provided later this year.

    An additional «bearish» factor for the greenback is rumors that the Fed will start a «twist» operation in December with the purchase of long-term bonds. In addition, yesterday's data on the labor market from ADP also disappointed investors: statistics showed the worst dynamics since July. It is reported that employment in the private sector will grow by only 307 thousand, which is worse than the forecast of 433 thousand and last month's figure of 404 thousand.

    The RSI indicator has leveled off to a horizontal position, which signals that the pair will adhere to flat dynamics during the day near the 1.2100 level.

    AUD / USD. 07.12 | "Inside bar" above the level of 0.7400

    On the daily chart, the Australian Dollar / US Dollar currency pair has formed an “inside bar” candlestick pattern based on the resistance level of 0.7400, giving a signal to buy.

    At the end of last week, the AUD / USD price renewed its maximum since August 2018 at 0.7448, after which it went into a slight correction. In the medium term, I would like to see further development of the upward trend.

    On the one hand, you can take a closer look at purchases according to the specified pattern, on the other hand, first wait for the development of a correction for a more convenient entry into the market. To make a decision, it makes sense to follow the price behavior and the formation of buy signals on lower timeframes. The next upside target is at 0.7500.

    EUR/AUD. 08.12 | Consolidation between the lines EMA 21 and EMA 60

    The euro / Australian dollar currency pair has formed on the daily chart a series of doji patterns above the resistance level of 1.6300, located between the exponential moving averages for 21 and 60 days - EMA 21 and EMA 60.

    Earlier, the EUR / AUD price renewed its maximum since November 4, after which it corrected to the nearest strong support level - 1.6300. I would like to see the completion of consolidation and continued growth along the upward trend.

    I will monitor the appearance of buy signals. The nearest target is at the level of 1.6400, near the EMA 200 line. The medium-term target for growth is at the level of 1.6500.

    GBP / USD. December 09, 2020 - Pin bar "from the level of 1.3300

    The GBP / USD currency pair formed a pin bar reversal pattern on the daily chart, rebounding from the 1.3300 resistance level.

    The price of the GBP / USD trading instrument corrected to the line of the 21-day exponential moving average - EMA 21, after which it turned around, giving a buy signal. The pound sterling rose in price amid news of the success of the Brexit negotiations.

    Most likely, the correction is over and the pair is ready to continue growing. The immediate upside target is 1.3500, which is in the area of highs since May 2018.
