Personal opinions today
Japan’s national consumer price index and core consumer price index growth in February, but was lower than market expectations. As the growth rate is lower than the Bank of Japan's inflation target of 2%, the market think the Bank of Japan will continue to maintain the current quantitative easing policy. Compared the average inflation rate in the United States at 1.5%, much higher than a Japan. It is estimated that the USD/JPY is still strong.
In the afternoon, the Eurozone announce the current account and the March Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index. The related French and German manufacturing purchasing managers' index will be announced before the release of data in the Eurozone and can be used as a reference and may be reflected in advance. In the evening, the Canadian retail sales and consumer price index such the inflation data which was expected to grow. If the inflation data does not exceed market expectations, it is believed that the Canadian dollar has chance to fall. Then, the US Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index, wholesale sales and existing home sales, are worthy of attention and have a certain degree of impact on the dollar's movements. In addition, the British Prime Minister on behalf of the United Kingdom submitted an extension to the European Union to extend the Brexit deadline, the results may be announced tonight in Asia time, please stay pay attention.
Today's suggestion:
1.1395/1.1415 resistance
1.1340/1.1320 support
The market digested the Fed’s interest rate is expected to stop raising interest rates this year, and the Brexit time extension is uncertain. Both made the euro fell and  reaches expected target 1.1370 support. The current trend of the pound may indirectly affect the euro. If good news boosts the pound, the euro is expected to rise. Technically, it is expected to the 1.14 level. Conversely, the euro will test below 1.13.
1.3165/1.3200 resistance
1.3070/1.3045 support
The UK applied to the extension of the Brexit deadline and accepted by the European Union.  If the British Parliament to pass the Brexit deal next week can be postponed until May 22. Otherwise, the agreement will be vetoed and the UK will leave the EU on April 12 without deal. It is expected to continue to be affected by the Brexit news in the short term and will likely affect the sterling volatility. If the British Parliament accepts Brexit, the time can be postponed and the room for the pound to rise and larger. On the contrary, it will fall. Next week is the last time the British Parliament voted before the deadline and should be paying attention to the risks when investing.

0.9905/0.9885 support
The euro fell, indirectly negative for the Swiss franc. Technically, the USDCHF has risen at the expected target of 0.9985, but it has not changed the Swiss franc and is expected to remain strong, as the euro is still performing well. Please pay attention to the news of the Brexit, the impact on the Swiss franc indirectly.
110.55/110.35 support
110.95/111.25 resistance
Japan’s inflation remains moderate, and the Fed expects to stop raising interest rates this year, offsetting each other’s shocks, and the dollar remains at 110 levels against the yen. If the US Dow moves higher in the future, Japan's Nikkei index will rise, and it is estimated that the USD/JPY trend will rise simultaneously. Currently concerned, 110.55 and 110.35 support. Whether the performance of the market can test the resistance of 110.95 and 111.25 depends on the performance of the global stock market, with particular attention to whether the US Dow can rise.
0.7115/0.7130 resistance

Recently, the unemployment rate in Australia has risen, and the price of industrial metals has fallen. This has caused the Australian dollar to stop and adjust, and the adjustment has exceeded 50% of the adjustment.

Today, the market expects Canada's retail sales and consumer price index to grow, which is expected and reflect on the Canadian dollar. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the trend of crude oil prices. If crude oil prices is lowered, the Canadian dollar may also fall. Technically, 1.3255 is an important support, and 1.3430 is an important resistance for reference.

0.8590/0.8565 support
Before the UK applied for an extension of the Brexit deadline, the pound fell and the euro rose against the pound, seeing 0.8718. The EU's approval of the UK's extension of the Brexit application is also good news, but the key is that the British Parliament needs to accept the deal in next week before it can be extended. Therefore, we must pay attention to the fluctuation of the EURGBP.
1.1265/1.1245 support
1.1300/1.1325 resistance
The euro fell further against the Swiss franc, indirectly affected by the fall of the pound. Technically, refer to the support between 1.1265 or 1.1245. If the support below 1.1245 is broken, the trend may further test 1.1190 important support.

60.35/60.60 resistance
59.35/58.80 support
The Fed maintains its existing monetary policy and plans to stop raising interest rates this year. The news will help boost crude oil prices, but whether it can continue to rise, need to consider other economic and crude oil supply factors. And pay attention to whether the US president will criticize the crude oil price is too high so that crude oil prices fall. Technically, if the price adjustment can focus on 59 and 58 support separately, if it breaks the support of $58, look forward to the test to $56.
