  • 28 Nov 2019



The USD/JPY pair has broken above the ascending trendline and the 109.27 resistance line once. The break is significant as price action has not reached this level since the end of July. However, the move has inspired the return of sellers as the pair oscillates within the uptrend, if the pair can sustain the break, price action will move higher. Momentum indicators have upward trajectories.








The Eurodollar is now testing the ascending trendline, having broken the 1.102 support level. Buyers have returned at the trendline where price action has rebounded on previous occasions. There is a moderate uptrend in the pair defined by higher lows yet price action remain volatile. Momentum indicators are neutral if slightly bearish.

The USD/CAD pair has stalled after a strong rally, with price action retracing to test the ascending trendline once again.

Momentum indicators have stalled in bullish territory.






Silver continues to move in line with the ascending trendline as sentiment has a bullish bias. Tests of the 16.83 support level have resulted in a bullish rebound. The range for the metal will be 16.83- 17.42, at least in the near-term. Momentum indicators have bullish trajectories and are recovering from oversold conditions.







Neither buyers or sellers are really influencing price action in a meaningful way, however, sellers have the edge resulting in price action returning to the 1446.82 support level. This support level represents an exhaustion area which sellers have struggled to push through on a previous occasion. Momentum indicators have flattened in bearish territory.
