The dollar rose and the Euro fell tonight if U.S. employment figures for December beat market expectations. Technically, the Euro‘s resistance at $1.1195. If this resistance is not broken, the EURUSD will try either $1.1125 or $1.1115 support.

The pound’s trend will be down before the end of the month. Technical analysis, sterling dollar 1.3282 is important resistance, the overall trend downward. Short-term resistance level note 1.3205 resistance. The dollar is up and the pound could fall if ADP data beats expectations today.

The USDCAD is expected to test the $1.2940 support level, which has rebounded on fears of a shortage of crude oil amid instability in Iran. However, it must be noted that the adjustment of crude oil prices may limit the USDCAD downward range, if any impact on the adjustment, USDCAD would test 1.30 level.
Us crude futures
Instability in the Middle East has triggered a rise in the price of crude oil. The US President's formal sanctions against Iran will strain oil supplies and boost the price of crude oil, which is currently testing $64. Oil could test $66 to $67 if conditions continue to develop and risk aversion rises. However, we must be cautious and pay attention to the volatility of crude oil prices and the opportunity to adjust.

Investors must now be closely watched the Middle East tensions with the potential for a cascade of rising risks. If the stock market falls, gold and silver prices will rise.
