Webinar: USDOLLAR Primed for Uptrend Continuation

Talking Points


Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Notes: The Dow Jones FXCM USDOLLAR Index broke above key resistance last week at the April high-day close 12123. The focus remains weighted to the topside while above this level with interim resistance seen at 12204 backed by the median-line parallel.


Notes: USDCHF broke above major resistance this month with today’s rally challenging slope resistance at eight-month highs. Look for interim resistance at 1.0126/40 with a breach above the 2015 high-day close at 1.0185 increasing the potential for a larger scale breakout in the pair. Immediate focus is higher while above 9995 with more significant support seen at 9900/13.


Notes: Crude is trading within the confines of a well-defined descending median-line formation with the recent decline responding to near-term support at the 39.79-40 Fibonacci confluence region. We could get some upside off this mark but the focus remains weighted to the downside while below 42.76 - 43.18. A break lower targets subsequent objectives at the 2015 low-day close at 38.07 & the 2008 low at 36.18.
