GBPUSD and EURUSD: British pound received a new charge of vigor. Euro continues to stagnate after mixed service sector reports

The British pound continues to hit highs after news that the Conservative Party could get a majority in Parliament in the December 12 general election. Such a scenario will allow incumbent Prime Minister Boris Johnson to secede from the EU and bring into play the agreed Brexit plan.
In the morning, I noticed that according to the Kantar report, the ruling Conservative Party of Great Britain increased its margin from the Labour Party to 12 points, which supports the pound, as it changes investors’ attitude to risk for the better. But do not forget that the closer we get to the election date, the more attention investors will pay to the survey results.
The pound buyers’ optimism was also filled with enthusiasm by the UK services activity report, which was revised upward after preliminary data. Despite the fact that the index is below the mark of 50 points, it showed a slight increase in November from a preliminary estimate. According to the IHS Markit report, the index of procurement managers for the UK services sector was 49.3 points in November against a preliminary estimate of 48.6 points. However, one growth to the level of 50 points is clearly not…

German Vehicle Industry To Shed Jobs At Faster Rate In 2020: VDA

German vehicle manufacturers are likely to cut more jobs in 2020 after employment in the industry hit its highest in nearly three decades last year. The employment level remained stable at 835,300 during the first nine months of this year, but the increase in the figure recorded during the first half of the year melted away in recent months, President of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) Bernhard Mattes said in a statement on Wednesday. “Capacity utilization has declined, limited-term employment contracts are not being renewed, and the instrument of short-time work is being employed once again. We have to expect a decrease in the size of the core workforce,” Mattes said. VDA expect to see a decrease in the figures this year in comparison with the previous year’s figure of 834,000 employees. “A trend that will be more pronounced in 2020,” Mattes added. The group expects a decrease of 4.1 million, or 5 percent, in global passenger car sales, which is larger than that recorded during the financial crisis a decade ago. The slowdown in the Chinese market is largely to blame. The VDA expects the world market for passenger cars to hit a volume of 78.9…

Oil Prices Rally Before OPEC+ Meet

Oil prices rose sharply on Wednesday amid expectations that OPEC and its partners, including Russia, will extend their current production agreement by three months when they meet later this week. Bullish inventory data also helped to lift prices. Benchmark Brent crude climbed nearly 2 percent to $62.01 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were up 1.7 percent at $57.05. The OPEC countries and its allies are preparing to approve deeper crude output cuts this week, when they meet in Vienna, according to Iraq, the group’s second-biggest producer. Iraq oil minister Thamer Ghadhban told reporters on Tuesday that a deeper cut is being preferred by a number of key members when they meet on Thursday and then on Friday. Meanwhile, according to the industry group American Petroleum Institute (API), crude oil inventories in the U.S. fell by more than expected last week. Stockpiles of crude oil fell by 3.7 million barrels, more than double expectations of a decline of 1.7 million barrels. The material has been provided by InstaForex Company – www.instaforex.com…

Technical analysis of AUD/USD for December 04, 2019

Overview: The AUD/USD pair will continue moving downwards from the level of 0.6826 (this level coincides with the 38.2% of Fibonacci retracement levels in H4 chart). Accordingly, the Aussie is going to show signs of strength at the lowest price of 0.6820. Thus, it will be a good deal to sell below the level of 61.8% of Fibonacci retracement levels on H1 chart with the first target at 0.6771 and further at 0.6726. Equally important, 0.6726 will be acting as a strong support so it is going to be a good place to take profit, it also should be noted that this level of taking profit will coincide with around last bearish wave. On the other hand, in case a reflection takes place and the AUD/USD pair is not able to break through the resistance at the 0.6820 level, the market will further decline to 0.6726 in order to indicate a bearish market. Additionally, the RSI is still calling for a strong bearish market as well as the current price is also below the moving average 100. According to previous events, the AUD/USD pair has still been trapped between the level of 0.6826 and the 0.6726 level (those levels coincided…
