EURJPY Provides Positive Signal

The EURJPY pair stared today by forming bullish wave, surpassing 145.65 barrier to hint getting rid of the negative pressures and start resuming the main bullish attack on the near term and medium term period. In case the price got a positive close above the breached barrier and getting continuous positive momentum by the major indicators, we expect to target 146.20 followed by reaching 147.1 levels, while turning back to fluctuate below 145.65 might force it to suffer some losses by crawling towards 144.5.

The expected trading range for today is between 145.5 and 146.2, and the expected trend for today is Bullish.​

XRPUSD - Authorities are preparing to introduce restrictions for the crypto sector

In general, the market remains negatively affected by the bankruptcy of the FTX exchange, which continues to cause an outflow of investors' funds from digital assets and may lead to the introduction of restrictions for cryptocurrency entrepreneurship by the authorities. It should be noted that US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Deputy Governor of the Bank of England John Cunliffe have already spoken out for the soonest strengthening of regulation of the sector, and representatives of the American Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) have announced an audit of the advertising policy of companies. The current market situation is pushing global regulators to designate clearer rules of operation, but some experts believe that they will only complicate the business conditions for many projects.

ADAUSD - Murrey analysis

The ADAUSD pair continues to trade within the medium-term downward channel, where it returned at the beginning of this month: at the weekend, the price reached the year’s lows around 0.2945 but is currently trying to restore positions. However, the upside potential is limited by strong resistance 0.3418 (Murrey level [2/8], the middle line of Bollinger bands, the upper border of the downwards channel).

ada.png


In general, the downward trend in the market continues, which is signaled by a downward reversal of Stochastic and stabilization of the MACD histogram in the negative zone. Under these conditions, the key “bearish” level is 0.2929 (Murrey level [0/8]). The consolidation below it allows a decline to 0.2685 (Murrey level [−1/8]) and 0.2441 (Murrey level [−2/8]). In general, the resumption of the cryptocurrency decline soon seems more likely.

Resistance levels: 0.3173, 0.3418 | Support levels: 0.2929, 0.2685, 0.2441​

USDJPY suffers strong losses

CAC 40 - French stock market continues to rise actively

French companies continue to demonstrate fairly strong financial results, despite another decline in business activity in the country: in November, the figure corrected from 103 points to 101 points against the forecast of 102.0 points. However, at the moment, the attention of investors is drawn to the statement of representatives of the automotive corporation Renault Group on the conclusion of cooperation with the energy companies Engie SA, Voltalia SA and Electricite de France SA for a 15-year supply of electricity from renewable sources, which can cover up to 50% of the needs of the automaker in the country. Recently, the issue of decarbonization of production in France has been quite acute, and reports of a deal may cause approval from the environmental community, allowing the issuer to attract additional investment.



On the daily chart, CAC 40 quotes continue to trade above the resistance line of the descending corridor, and the technical indicators strengthen the buy signal.

AUDUSD - Australian economy shows signs of decline

The reason for the negative dynamics was poor macroeconomic data: according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, retail turnover in October fell by 0.2% after rising by 0.6% in September, which was the first decline since falling by 4.1% in December 2021 and is a consequence of the weakening in all leading industries, except for products retail trade. The leaders of the negative movement were department stores, which lost 2.4%, closely followed by the clothing trade sector (–2.0%), and for the first time since January, the indicators of restaurants and cafes decreased (–0.4%). ABS Head of Retail Statistics Ben Dorber said the correction results from higher interest rates and could be long-term.

On the daily chart of the asset, the price is moving in a downward channel, and after reaching the resistance line, a reversal begins to form. The technical indicators maintain a weakening buy signal.

Crude Oil Price Suffers Strong Losses

Therefore, the bearish bias will be expected for today, supported by the negative pressure formed by the EMA50, taking into consideration that breaching 76.05 will stop the suggested decline and lead the price to attempt to recover again.

The expected trading range for today is between 72 support and 75.7 resistance, and the expected trend for today is Bearish.​
