Trends for Today by 05/01/2010

Market Notes:
Despite risk appetite return, we saw the NZD and AUD started the day in the negative territory. However, for the last few hours it seems like “back to normal”, which means AUD and NZD continue to rise.
CAD still is very strong and the next day-two are the key days as oil is at its resistance. Breaking it, can take the oil to 85$ and will have more bullish affect for CAD.
JPY has started the day on a very positive note, although the stock markets have finished the day with a good rally.

Daily Trends & Charts


AUD/JPY – uptrend channel

Although JPY has started as a strongest currency of the day, it couldn’t break the uptrend support. Combined with a risk appetite, we believe the pair will continue to rise.


GBP/USD – breaking of the support line

The pair has broken the 1.6075 support. It looks that it tests the line again, only that the support has became a resistance. We’ll expect for a further decline, while 1.5925 is a next strong support, 1.6022 is a weak one.
