        A bear flag breakdown seen in the AUD/USD's chart is indicating that the sell-off from the Dec. 4 high of 0.7392 has resumed and the psychological level of $0.70 could be put to test soon.

              cbeg5-nlopx.jpg
              The USD traded higher against the CAD and closed at 1.3484.

              In Canada, the organizations and people that affect the most the moves of the pair are:
              • Bank of Canada (BoC, Canada’s Central bank) that issues statements and decides on the interest rates of the country. Its president is Stephen Poloz.
              • Canadian Government (headed by Justin Trudeau) and its Department of Finance (whose minister is Bill Morneau) that implement policies that affect the economy of the country.
              • CAPP (Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers): Canada being a prominent oil and natural gas producer, the trade organization of that industry is very important.

              According to the Analysis, The pair is expected to find support at 1.34306, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1.33774. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 1.35216, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 1.35594. Previous Day range was 91 and Current Day Range is 30.1.

              GBP USD
              cb70r-fqr5v.jpg
              The British Pound traded a bit higher against the USD and closed at 1.2608.

              The FOMC's decision was unanimous, hiking rates by 25 basis points to 2.25% - 2.50%, repeating in the statement that risks to the economy appear 'roughly balanced' and will "continue to monitor economic and financial conditions for their effects on the economic outlook."

              The pair is expected to find support at 1.25840, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1.25600. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 1.26543, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 1.27006.

              cb4c8-yd21q.jpg
              The USD traded lower against JPY and closed at 112.47.

              The USD/JPY is barely moving after the Bank of Japan's (BOJ) status quo announcement. The Japanese central bank offered little hawkish or dovish surprises by keeping its short-term rate target at minus 0.1 percent and the 10-year yield target around zero percent under a policy dubbed yield curve control (YCC).
              Moreover, the BOJ is stuck between the rock and a hard place - maintaining current stimulus is proving costly, however, there is limited scope for policy normalization amid signs of global economic slowdown and ahead of next year's consumption tax hike.

              According to the analysis, USD/JPY pair is expected to find support at 112.155, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 111.840. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 112.720, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 112.970.

              USD/JPY previous day range was 5650 and current day range is 3400.

                            Overview of Gold: $1,300 Break Remains Indefinable Despites the Weak tone in US Dollar

                            XAU traded a bit lower against USD and closed at 1288.78.
                            • Gold picked up a bid on Monday, tracking the weak spot in the US dollar, but the bull momentum ran out of steam at $1,295.
                            • The dollar index (DXY) fell to 2.5-month lows below the 100-day MA.
                            • The yellow metal is still struggling to break past $1,300.
                            • $1,276 is the level to beat for the bears.

                            According to the Analysis, The XAU/USD.X pair is expected to find support at 1282.62, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1276.47. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 1294.99, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 1301.21. Previous Day range was 12.37 and Current Day Range is 7.69.

                            The yellow metal failed to cross the psychological barrier of $1,300 on Friday and carved out a bearish-lower high of $1,288 yesterday, despite the drop in the US dollar - gold's biggest retribution.
                            Notably, the dollar index found acceptance below the 100-day moving average (MA) yesterday and fell to 95.64 - a level last seen on Oct. 22.
                            The greenback is indeed on the defensive, having closed below the 100-day MA for the first time since Sept. 27 amid dovish Fed expectations.
                            The yellow metal is still struggling to pick up a strong bid. As of writing, it is reporting moderate losses at $1,286 per Oz. Gold's inability to capitalize on DXY's break below the 100-day MA likely indicates the bulls are facing exhaustion.

                              Overview of Crude Oil: WTI Continues to Climb on Trade Hopes

                              US Oil – also known as West Texas Intermediate (WTI) and Texas Sweet Light – is another type of ‘sweet light’ crude oil, that has a lower sulphur content and density than UK Oil. It is drilled in North America, primarily in Texas, Louisiana and North Dakota, and sent via pipeline to Cushing, Oklahoma for price settlement. As this is a landlocked area, most WTI oil is consumed in the US, making this the primary benchmark for the US market.

                              According to the analysis, USOil.x pair is expected to find support at 48.95, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 47.89. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 50.60, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 51.89.

                              USOil.x previous day range was 16500 and current day range is 9000.
                              • US-China trade talks continue, and markets continue to bid up on hopes of progress.
                              • Commodities are catching a relief run on hopes of improving trade, after a tense ending to 2018.

                              Crude energies markets are continuing to spin higher as investors hope for peaceful trade talks to resolve between the US and China, which are at present underway at the vice-ministerial level, extending into a third day of talks with traders awaiting announcements following the trade meetings. Trade tensions between the US and China have spun out broader market sentiment in recent months, and investors are looking for any signs of a recovery in global trade in order to offset the increasing signs of economic slowdown across the planet for 2019.

                              The Energy Information Administration's (EIA) Crude Oil Stocks Change Indicator is published weekly. It measures the number of barrels of commercial crude oil held by US companies. It is one of the indicators affecting world oil prices.

                              Growing crude oil stocks indicate a weaker demand for oil and can have a negative impact on the oil barrel price.

                                cb7d2-e50d9.jpg
                                The GBP traded higher against the USD and closed at 1.2746.

                                The GBP/USD pair trades at the upper end of its weekly range as the dollar remains weak. Upside capped by Brexit uncertainty, looming Parliamentary discussions.

                                Manufacturing Production m/m shows the change in the value of goods produced in the manufacturing sector of the UK industry in the given month compared to the previous month.

                                Manufacturing (production of foods, pharmaceuticals, light industry, metal processing, etc.) accounts for about 80% of the overall UK industrial production. The indicator growth may have a positive effect on the pound quotes.

                                According to the Analysis, The pair is expected to find support at 1.27154, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1.26853.

                                Previous Day range was 72 and Current Day Range is 25.3.


                                AUD USD
                                cbvcl-bb7xa.jpg
                                The AUD traded lower against the USD and closed at 0.7185.
                                AUD prints session highs above 0.72 following a better-than-expected Aussie retail sales release.
                                The pair is struggling to find acceptance above 0.72 and could feel the pull of gravity during the day ahead as both the USD/CNH pair and gold are hinting at a recovery rally in the US dollar.
                                Australia Retail Sales m/m show a change in the turnover of goods and services sold in retail outlets in the given month compared to the previous month.
                                The turnover of goods and services sold in retail outlets include retail sales, wholesales, takings from repairs, sales in public places, commission from agency activity, as well as the goods and services tax.
                                The indicator growth can have a positive effect on the Australian dollar quotes.
                                The pair is expected to find support at 0.71548, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 0.71248. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 0.72059, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 0.72270.

                                AUD USD previous Day range was 51.1 and Current Day Range is 31.6.


                                NZD USD

                                The NZD traded higher against USD and closed at 0.6779.

                                The NZD/USD pair is probing the trendline falling from December highs for the third day straight. As of writing, the trendline resistance is located at 0.6786. Interestingly, the 100-period moving average (MA) on the 4-hour chart is also located at that level.

                                Building Consents m/m reflect summary data on permits for the construction of residential and non-residential buildings priced at 5000$ and higher, granted by New Zealand consent authorities. The indicator is calculated as a change in the reported month compared to the previous one. The calculation accounts for taxes on goods and services, however it is not adjusted for inflation.

                                Data on construction approvals are considered as an indicator of confidence in the domestic economy, therefore construction consents are also considered as a leading indicator of the construction sector activity.

                                According to the analysis, NZD/USD pair is expected to find support at 0.67684, and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 0.67581. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 0.67915, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 0.68043.

                                NZD/USD previous day range was 23.1 and current day range is 42.5.
