Personal opinions today:

In the Brexit negotiations, the Irish border trade agreement made progress, boosting the pound, and the pound was 1.31. At the same time, the bullish euro, EURUSD rose and hit the 1.15 mark. However, the market is still concerned about the results of US inflation data. The yield of US Treasury bonds is still high, and the US dollar is supported to curb the rise of the euro and the pound. At the same time, the US dollar continued to be high, and the US dollar against other major currencies also curbed the increase.

Similarly, the US Treasury bond yields was high, the US Dow is still weak, and the trend is maintaining downward. Asian stock markets are generally following the trend. The Nikkei index continued its downward trend, and the US dollar remained at 113 mark against the yen. The overall development of USDJPY is still downward.

Tonight and tomorrow night, the United States announced the September production price index and consumer price index and other related inflation data, US Treasury yields reached short-term highs, gold prices and crude oil prices, the rise was blocked.

Today's suggestion:


1.1535/1.1550 resistance

1.1465/1.1450 support

Although the Brexit negotiations are progressing well, it will help boost the euro. However, the market is watching the performance of US inflation data. That inflation expectations are heating up, and it is difficult for the euro to break through the resistance. But the market sentiment has changed. If the US inflation data shows signs of slowing down, the dollar will fall, which will cause the euro to rebound. In the short-term technical position, the euro is concerned with one of the important support of 1.1450 against the US dollar, with a short-term resistance of 1.1535.


1.3175/1.3200 resistance

1.3095/1.3080 support

Market rumors, the Brexit negotiations are expected to reach a bilateral trade agreement between the EU summit before the end of the month, market optimism boosts the pound. It is currently estimated that the Brexit negotiations are optimistic, and the fundamentals support the rise of the pound. However, before the US inflation data is released, under the strong dollar, there is still a chance to curb the pound, and it is recommended to be cautious when trading. Special attention to the 1.3175 and 1.3200 resistance levels.


0.9935/0.9950 resistance

0.9885/0.9865 support

However, the US dollar against the Swiss franc has been below the resistance of 0.9950 and 0.9970, the euro rebounded yesterday, the dollar fell against the Swiss franc. Overall trend still needs to pay attention to the euro-dollar change, because the market is eager to see the inflation data released by the US this week, which may curb the euro's rise, but also to curb the Swiss franc. If EURUSD have a chance to rise further, it will help the dollar fall against the Swiss franc.

112.65/112.50 support

The Nikkei index continued to fall, becoming one of the important factors for the dollar to fall against the yen. In addition, after the quarterly settlement in Japan, the return of funds to Japan will help the yen rise.
