1.1155/1.1165 resistance

1.1105/1.1095 support

European currencies could gain support as tensions ease over Iran. But the Euro fell after the dollar rose last night after the U.S. reported better-than-expected ADP job data for December. Today, markets are focusing on Germany's November trade and current account and industrial output. There were also concerns about a vote in the British House of Commons on the Brexit deal bill. If the above-mentioned data beat expectations and passes a bill to Brexit, it could bullish the Euro. It is now estimated that Euro tests 1.1105 and 1.1095 support.

As Iran tensions over, markets look forward to a vote in the house of Commons on the Brexit deal bill tonight or tomorrow morning.

Although the RBA has mentioned it will cut interest rates at its February meeting, interest rate futures show a chance of a rate cut of more than 60% in June, a bearish for the Australian dollar.

Risk aversion cooled and global stock markets rebounded, pushing the USDJPY to break through the 109 barriers. Technically, Dow and Nikkei futures continue to rise, and the dollar will follow suit, USDJPY testing highs. But the mood in the Middle East changes from time to time, and stock markets can adjust from time to time.

Gold prices fell as events in the Middle East changed. U.S. jobs data beat market expectations and Dow futures rebounded, sending gold and silver prices lower. For now, we suggest keeping an eye on the situation, as well as the Brexit vote, and waiting for the outcome.
