Webinar: Start of Month, Quarter Yields Fresh Scalp Opportunities

Webinar: Start of Month, Quarter Yields Fresh Scalp Opportunities

Michael Boutros,

Talking Points

The first full week of April / 2Q trade has us focused on the dollar crosses on the back of Friday’s Non-Farm Payrolls report. Although the report showed an uptick in the unemployment rate, the move came alongside a braodening in the labor force participation rate- a positive development for the U.S. economy. Still, its important to remember that the Fed’s main concern at this point remains the inflationary outlook and as such, we do not expect Friday’s print to have a lasting impact on price.

We’re looking for USDOLLAR strength early in the week with the GBPUSD & USDCAD setups in play. AUDUSD will be of particular interest heading into tonight’s RBA interest rate decision after the pair reversed off slope resistance on Friday. We also discussed key levels on CADJPY, EURGBP, Crude Oil & the SPX heading into the monthly open.
