Weekly Preview: Technical analysis on USDJPY, GBPUSD, USDCNH, XAUUSD, WTI, SPX

Market Analysis /
28 Jan 2020

This week, safe haven currencies benefitted from the risk aversion driven by fears of the coronavirus outbreak. Meanwhile, commodity currencies took a back seat with the Loonie skydiving after BOC’s switched from a neutral to dovish stance, much to the market’s surprise.  On the other hand, the AUD was relieved from its recent decline as unemployment data came in better than expected and provided some support for the currency though that did not last long as risk aversion floods the market once again.
