Technical Analysis


The oil companies are having a very difficult time. It’s not only the low cost of oil, but also the low demand for it. In addition, countries may repeat the spring scenario of total closure to overcome the second wave of COVID-19. In such conditions, oilmen want to keep investors and do it by any means, for example, pay good dividends. Shell raised payments by 4%.

Chevron announced plans to pay $1.29 per share, which could also have a positive impact on the stock. In addition, the asset’s chart on the weekly timeframe has formed a bullish convergence.


A short-term uptrend to a downtrend resistance level can be expected for the currency pair.


The asset may meet resistance at 1.34000.
