Forecast for EUR/USD on December 9, 2019

EUR / USD
On Friday, the price returned to the Fibonacci level of 123.6% and under the embedded line of the declining blue price channel, due to excellent data on US employment. At the same time, the breakdown of support occurred exactly at the intersection of these two lines, which is a sign of strong movement, with prospects for further development. The signal line of the Marlin oscillator, in turn, returned to the downward trend zone.
The first target of the movement will be the Fibonacci level of 138.2% at the price of 1.0985. After that, breaking through this support from which the price turned up on November 29 and 14, will open lower targets: 1.0925 (lows of September 12 and 3) and 1.0895. As it moves further, the price will have to fight with the Fibonacci level of 161.8% at the price of 1.0845 and go down to the lower line of the blue price channel in the region of 1.0710.
On the four-hour chart, the price has consolidated below the MACD line; the Marlin oscillator is completely in a downward trend.

GBP/USD. Will the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland still appear?

Since it’s been about a week before the elections, the main election opponents Jeremy Corbyn and Boris Johnson continue to fight against each other despite the fact that all the main political forces of Great Britain have already played the main cards and Trump cards. In principle, it is clear to absolutely everyone that the main battle for the status of the “ruling party” will take place precisely between the Labor and Conservatives. Thus, the leaders of these parties continue to seek incriminating evidence against each other, blame each other and try to expose the rival party and its leader in the most unfavorable light possible. It can be recalled that not more than a week ago, Boris Johnson quite cynically used the tragedy on the London Bridge in the fight against the Labor Party, saying that it was the party of Corbyn that was to blame for it, which approved the law during its reign. According to which convicted of terrorist activities are entitled to early release. As a result, a terrorist who attacked civilians was released from prison ahead of schedule.
Now, it was the turn of the Labor leader himself, who allegedly published a secret document,…

Oil Futures Rise To Near 3-month High As OPEC Deepens Output Cuts

Crude oil prices rose sharply on Friday after Saudi Arabia and Russia agreed on further output curbs. Positive comments on the trade deal front and upbeat U.S. jobs data contributed as well to oil’s sharp rise. The OPEC and a 10-nation coalition led by Russia called OPEC+ have agreed to deepen oil production cuts in order to prevent oversupply in the market. The new deal agreed upon during the Vienna meet will apply for the first three months of 2020. The move follows the recommendation of the oil exporting countries to deepen the cuts by 500,000 barrels per day to existing 1.2 million barrels per day. The total curb of 1.7 million barrels per day would amount to 1.7% of global crude supply. Saudi Arabia’s energy minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman told reporters today that the kingdom’s quota would be an additional 167,000 barrels per day and that it would continue to exceed its quota by 400,000 barrels a day, thus bringing the overall production cut to closer to 2.1 million barrels a day. West Texas Intermediate Crude oil futures for January ended up $0.77, or about 1.3%, at $59.20 a barrel, the highest settlement since September 17. On Thursday,…

Treasuries Move Notably Lower On Better Than Expected Jobs Data

Extending the downward move seen over the two previous sessions, treasuries moved notably lower during trading on Friday. Bond prices came under pressure early in the session and remained firmly negative throughout the day. Subsequently, the yield on the benchmark ten-year note, which moves opposite of its price, climbed 4.5 basis points to 1.842 percent. The continued weakness among treasuries came following the release of a closely watched Labor Department report showing much stronger than expected U.S. job growth in the month of November. The report said non-farm payroll employment surged up by 266,000 jobs in November after climbing by an upwardly revised 156,000 jobs in October. Economists had expected an increase of about 180,000 jobs compared to the addition of 128,000 jobs originally reported for the previous month. The Labor Department said notable job gains occurred in healthcare and in professional and technical services, while manufacturing employment also rose as General Motors (GM) workers returned from a strike. With the stronger than expected job growth, the unemployment rate edged down to 3.5 percent in November from 3.6 percent in October. The unemployment rate was expected to remain unchanged. A separate report released by the University of Michigan showed a…

U.S. Consumer Sentiment Climbs To Seven-Month High In December

Preliminary data released by the University of Michigan on Friday showed a much bigger than expected improvement in U.S. consumer sentiment in the month of December. The report said the consumer sentiment index climbed to 99.2 in December from the final November reading of 96.8. Economists had expected the index to inch up to 97.0. With the much bigger than expected increase, the consumer sentiment index reached its highest level since hitting 100.0 in May. The current economic index jumped to 115.2 in December from 111.6 in November, while the index of consumer expectations rose to 88.9 from 87.3. Surveys of Consumers chief economist Richard Curtin said nearly all of the improvement in consumer sentiment in December was among upper income households, who reported near record gains in household wealth due to record high stock prices. “Indeed, among households with incomes in the top third of the distribution, their overall assessment of their current finances was the third highest in the past twenty years,” Curtin said. He added, “These gains were aided by declining inflation expectations, with long term inflation expectations returning to an all-time low.” The report said one-year inflation expectations edged down to 2.4 percent in December from…
