Currencies

The greenback slipped on Wednesday by 0.2% yet the bullish uptrend still intact while above the neckline of the inverted head and shoulders pattern located on Thursday at 93.33. Therefore, a daily close above 94.04 could send the US Dollar index towards 95.24.

On the other hand, the EUR/USD rallied on Wednesday however, remained below the 50-day moving average highlighting the bull's weakness. A close below 1.1713 could send the pair towards 1.1621.

The GBP/USD has benefited from the US dollar retreat and tested this week the 1.3000 level for the first time in three weeks. However, the EU/UK negotiations updates next week could weigh heavily on the British pound as the UK may pull out of the talks if there was no clear deal in sight.

Commodities

The Brent oil remained around $42.50 yet a failure to close above that level could reverse the price direction towards $39.60 while the US Crude may fall towards $38.37 while below the 50-day moving average.

The Gold price failed to close above $1,921 and pointed lower this week. The precious metal could resume bearish price action if closes below $1,861.
