USD/PHP Technical Outlook
The Philippine Peso may find itself outperforming against the US Dollar as it looks to confirm a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. USD/PHP is on the verge of extending losses under the near-term rising trend line from the beginning of August. That places the focus on support at 51.86. Otherwise, a false breakout may result in uptrend resumption towards 52.73.Fundamentally, FOMC minutes may boost USD.

USD/SGD Technical Outlook
The US Dollar is looking increasingly vulnerable to the Singapore Dollar after USD/SGD formed an Evening Star bearish reversal pattern. This followed fading upside momentum noted last week, with the currency pair now looking to confirm closes under the rising support line from the middle of July. Further declines under support, which is a range between 1.3808 and 1.3836, opens the door to reversal confirmation.

USD/MYR Technical Outlook
Meanwhile, the US Dollar is also at risk to the Malaysian Ringgit after USD/MYR confirms a close under support at 4.1800. That opens the door to a reversal of the near-term uptrend from the middle of July. In the medium-term, the currency pair may test potential rising support from March (red line below). Along the way stands areas of support around 4.1550 and 4.1448.

USD/INR Technical Outlook
Focusing on the Indian Rupee, the US Dollar has managed to extend gains despite fading upside momentum. This is represented as negative RSI divergence on the chart below. This comes as USD/INR faces the next critical psychological barrier between 71.53 and 71.82 after the break above descending resistance – from October 2018. If resistance holds, a turn lower places support at 70.88. Otherwise, a climb eyes 72.55.
