Webinar: Post-Yellen USD Advance at Risk into Monthly Close / NFP
- Setups in focus ahead off key event risk this week
- Updated targets & invalidation levels
Fed Chair Yellen’s remarks last week saw probabilities for a December rate hike rise with the greenback finding some footing on this rally. The immediate risk is higher but we’re on the lookout for some near-term exhaustion on some of the USD crosses.
Note that we are heading into the close of August trade with NFPs on tap ahead of an extended U.S. holiday weekend. That’s all to say, near-term trading in these market conditions are difficult and as such it’s prudent to be a bit more selective with intraday positions and lower leverage heading into the start of September trade.
Key setups discussed on USDOLLAR, USDJPY, EURUSD, AUDUSD, GBPUSD, GBPNZD, NZDUSD, AUDNZD, Gold, Crude Oil, USDCAD. Continue tracking these setups and more throughout the week- Subscribe to SB Trade Desk and take advantage of the DailyFX New Subscriber Discount.
