An examination of price action highlights the risk of a near-term low in the greenback (high in EURUSD) with a look at some recent publications also reflecting subtle extremes in sentiment. That said, the DXY is still trading in risky territory and a recovery above 92 would be needed to suggest a more meaningful rebound is underway.
The crosses all look appealing at these levels with EUR & CAD favored in the scenario of USD strength (short EURUSD / long USDCAD) while GBP & AUD are favored in the event of USD weakness (long GBPUSD & AUDUSD).

Highlighting this week’s event risk will be the central bank interest rate decisions from the Bank of England (BoE) and inflation data from the both the UK & U.S. Keep in mind it’s the blackout period for Fed officials ahead of next week’s highly anticipated FOMC interest rate decision.
