The situation in the market of the main FX pair continues to evolve interesting way. After the market pulled back to three-week lows in the 1.1350 area, on Thursday we observed a weak recovery of the market from these marks on technical factors. This market activity confirmed the importance of the nearest support - the lower boundary of the channel proved firm, and today the market is storming the nearest resistance around 1.1400. Today we expect a very intense trading day; the situation may develop in various ways. Firstly, the data on the American labor market for December will be published today, and secondly, the head of the American regulator Powell will speak as Wall-Street starts. All this can have a strong impact on the market and significantly increase volatility.

AUD / USD - quotes returned to the level of 0.7040

At the start of European trading on Friday, Australian dollar almost completely recovered back all its losses, as there is the shadow left of a candle with a length of 300 points as a sign of high volatility. This is a trace of the so-called “flash crash” and precisely because of such a situation, it is recommended to stay out of the market in the “thin market” - the risks are very high. Technically, the quotes returned to the support zone 0.7000-0.7040. It is now quite difficult to predict how events will develop further. Dollar weakness suggests the possibility of a corrective movement, while the technical picture carries the risk of a resumption of negative dynamics. Taking into account the rich information background, we recommend to stay out of the market today as well.
