USDNOK Teeters on Edge of 14-Month Support: Will it Bounce or Break?

USDNOK broke below the lower lip of the 8.6937-8.7883 range (solid yellow lines), and meaningful follow-through could be a major risk and could usurp optimism over the pair’s upward trajectory. The rising support (red parallel channel) has been active for over 14 months. A break below this with follow-through would mark a significant turn for the pair’s movement.

Despite USDNOK coming dangerously close to breaking below the over-one year rising support, the pair appear to be determined to continue higher. This comes despite a comparatively more hawkish outlook from the Norges Bank relative to the Fed. Unless the pair break below this upward-sloping support with follow-through, the current trajectory is expected to continue at least until year-end.

USDSEK appears to be retreating from the sugar high it experienced in late April when the pair jumped approximately 2.5 percent. The break above resistance at 9.3110 (solid red line) with follow-through marked a significant bullish landmark as USDSEK continued to trade at a 17-year high. However, the pair may have now found a new temporary range between 9.5323-9.5767 (red dotted parallel lines).

The prospective congestion may be a repeat of what had occurred earlier in the year when the pair spiked, cooled and traded sideways before resuming its broad uptrend. The period of relatively-lateral price movement could be thought of as a digestive interim where market participants take a moment to reevaluate their position and determine if the prevailing trend will continue along its current trajectory.

A monthly chart shows the uptrend has continued along its steep incline since January 2018. The prevailing trend will likely continue and will be supported by fundamental tailwinds that will put a premium on liquidity and a discount on risk. In this environment, the almighty US Dollar’s unparalleled liquidity will redirect capital away from risk-oriented assets like the Swedish Krona.
