Los ojos se centraran en el evento político de salida de Trump y que se eviten los disturbios que amenazaban, aunque es más relevante estar pendiente de las primeras acciones de Joe Biden como nuevo mandatario se estima que una de ellas se centra en el paquete de rescate de 1.9 trillones de USD
Técnicamente, de muy corto plazo tenemos el soporte marcado en 19.60 con extensión en 19.55, aunque para ser sinceros no existe nivel claro ya que desde marzo pasado no se observan niveles tan bajos como el de hoy. Las resistencias inmediatas las veo sobre 19.68 y 19.73 para el scalping.
Rangos iniciales 19.55/19.73.

This Day in History!
A day like today in 1981, Minutes after Ronald Reagan’s inauguration as the 40th president of the United States, the 52 U.S. captives held at the U.S. embassy in Teheran, Iran, are released, ending the 444-day Iran Hostage Crisis.
On November 4, 1979, the crisis began when militant Iranian students, outraged that the U.S. government had allowed the ousted shah of Iran to travel to New York City for medical treatment, seized the U.S. embassy in Teheran. The Ayatollah Khomeini, Iran’s political and religious leader, took over the hostage situation, refusing all appeals to release the hostages, even after the U.N. Security Council demanded an end to the crisis in an unanimous vote.
President Jimmy Carter was unable to diplomatically resolve the crisis, and on April 24, 1980, he ordered a disastrous rescue mission in which eight U.S. military personnel were killed and no hostages rescued.
In November 1980, Carter lost the presidential election to Republican Ronald Reagan. Soon after, with the assistance of Algerian intermediaries, success ful negotiations began between the United States and Iran. On the day of Reagan’s inauguration, the United States freed almost $8 billion in frozen Iranian assets, and the hostages were released after 444 days. The next day, Jimmy Carter flew to West Germany to greet the Americans on their way home.
