Webinar: FX Majors In the Crosshairs as Seasonals Turn Against USD
- Setups in focus ahead off key event risk this week
- Updated targets & invalidation levels
Seasonal tendencies for the greenback turn increasingly bearish here, especially against the Euro, Sterling & Swissy. The focus of the week shifts towards U.S. Retail Sales & CPI ahead of next week’s highly anticipated FOMC policy decision. Keep in mind today is the final day for Fed commentary ahead of the upcoming rate decision with Governor Lael Brainard on tap to speak later today.
The Japanese yen is the strongest performer to start off the week with U.S. equity markets attempting to pare some off the sharp losses seen last week. On balance, we are looking for pullbacks in EUR & GBP to offer long entries while the risk remaining for a deeper setback in AUD & NZD before resumption.
Key setups discussed on USDOLLAR, NZDUSD, USDCAD, EURUSD, AUDUSD, GBPUSD, EURAUD, Gold & Crude Oil. Continue tracking these setups and more throughout the week- Subscribe to SB Trade Desk and take advantage of the DailyFX New Subscriber Discount.
