Technical Analysis

GBP/USD

The fact that trade negotiations between Brussels and London are going badly is not new. The parties continue to say that there is no progress. Germany suggested Britain be more realistic in its demands since the kingdom is no longer part of the EU. A week earlier, the Bank of England recommended that commercial banks get ready for life without a trade agreement.

The British pound against the US dollar is now in a great place for sales, as the chart is located near the resistance level of 1.26400.

CHF/JPY

We expect a decline from the currency pair, as the MACD indicator has formed a bearish divergence. Confirmation of the signal will be the return of quotations to the area below 113.500.

AUD/CHF

A possible decline in quotes within the boundaries of the rising channel.
