Yesterday, US stocks rebounded sharply, by expectations for an agreement on additional economic measures in the US, and the news that President Trump was discharged due to mild infection of COVID-19.
The foreign exchange market also started at the beginning of the week with “Risk-on” mood, JPY and USD depreciation. EURUSD temporarily rose to 1.1797 and closed the US market with 1.178. AUD and GBP also had a buying advantage from beginning to end. On the other hand, USDJPY temporarily rose to 105.79 and closed the US market around 105.7 due to the unwinding from the sharp risk-off selling last Friday.
Surprisingly, this week started with risk-on. It will be interesting to see if the EURUSD exceeds 1.18. However, CCI of H1 chart shows bearish regular divergence. Today we will have an announcing the Australian RBA policy rate.
