Technical Analysis

USD/RUB

The Russian currency is experiencing several stress factors at once. The first of these is low oil prices. The second is the start of the COVID-19 epidemic in large cities, which is showing signs of proliferation. Against this background, the exchange rate of the Russian currency continues to decline.

However, a downward resistance level may halt the trend, but for this the situation in the oil market should at least hint at an improvement.

AUD/USD

The complex use of the Fibonacci fan shows that there is a high degree of probability the Australian currency will resume growth in the near future, which can lead the asset to the level of 0.63000.

Dow Jones

The MACD on the chart of one of the leading US stock indices gave a bearish signal, which can be implemented in the near future.
