EUR/USD off big support, but has immediate resistance
The Euro sprung to life yesterday off big support around the 11300-level, but with the 140 pip or so rally we are already faced with resistance via lows from a couple of times this month along with the trend-line off the September peak and the underside of the December 2016 trend-line. Today when the October U.S. jobs report comes out we may learn more about yesterday’s move. If a solidly bullish USD report comes out and the Euro sells off only to respond back higher, then there may a break of resistance and move to the next level or resistance at 11500.

AUD/USD broke a steadfast trend-line, in correction mode
Aussie posted an impressive day yesterday, breaking the trend-line that has been in place since January. With the firm break higher prices look likely. A pullback or consolidation period here even if for only a day or two could do some good towards allowing traders to get onboard for another thrust higher. Initially targeting the 7300-area

EUR/NZD at confluence of support, watching for reversal
EUR/NZD is of interest given the spot where the recent slide has put it. There is a trend-line from February 2017 and several inflection points over the past year in the vicinity of today’s trading range. Additionally, the 200-day passes through the trend-line, further strengthening this area as important. If today’s modest reversal (rejection) can maintain or improve by the end of the session, then we could see a nice recovery next week.

Gold price from support back to strong resistance
The pullback in gold went into the support zone of 1214/1210 before reversing strongly higher yesterday. But we are already faced with resistance in the 1235/42 zone, making it a tricky spot. It looks like we could see some more follow-through, but tactically speaking this is a tough one for new longs at resistance. Shorts aren’t all that appealing given the velocity at which resistance was met. More info will be needed before drawing firmer conclusions.
