Webinar: USDOLLAR within Striking Distance of 2016 Open Ahead of FOMC

Webinar: USDOLLAR within Striking Distance of 2016 Open Ahead of FOMC

Michael Boutros,
  • Setups in focus ahead off key event risk this week
  • Updated targets & invalidation levels

We’re on the lookout for possible near-term exhaustion in the greenback early in the week with the U.S. Dollar Index within striking distance of confluence resistance into the 2016 open at 12131. The long-bias is at risk heading into this region as we await the FOMC interest rate decision on Wednesday.

Beyond the Fed, the release of Australia CPI, UK GDP, the BoJ interest rate decision and U.S. 2Q GDP will be of particular interest this week. Keep in mind we are heading into the close of July trade and added caution is warranted as end-of-month flows can often prompt unexpected intraday volatility.

Key levels discussed on USDOLLAR, USDCAD, AUDJPY, EURUSD, EURJPY, GBPCAD, GBPJPY, Crude Oil & Gold. Continue tracking these setups and more throughout the week- Subscribe to SB Trade Desk and take advantage of the DailyFX New Subscriber Discount.
