USDOLLAR 30min

USD Shorts Remained Favored on FOMC Sell Off- Key Support 11,731

Notes: An update to the setup published on June 3rd- The USDOLLAR posted an outside reversal candle yesterday on the back of the FOMC Interest Rate announcement with the decline breaking below the weekly opening range / key support at 11839/43. The index has responded to confluence support at the 11731 with a rebound today in New York testing former median-line parallel support (now interim resistance) into the close of the session.

Bottom line: the broader short-bias remains in play below the weekly ORL at 11839 with only a breach above 11880/87 shifting the focus back to the topside. We’ll be looking to sell rallies / short-triggers with a break sub-11731 targeting objectives at 11681 & 11634.
