The pair was seen to bounce back on the “Triangle Pattern’s” resistance line and retest the pair’s previous highs. As the 2020 US Presidential Election on November 03 looms, many candidates already announced their intentions to run during the election, one of them is the incumbent President Donald Trump who seeks to be re-elected. However, many of his promises during the 2016 Presidential Election were still not yet executed, like the border wall. On December 22, President Trump partially shut down his government, which lasted for 35 days, the longest in US history. He agreed to uplift the shutdown with the House of Representative Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat. However, he warned that he will shut down the government again if no agreement will be reached, but it turned out that rather than shutting down his government, he declared a “National Emergency” last February 15, which will set aside the legal limits in his authority.
The pair will continue its rally after it broke out of the down trend channel’s resistance line.
