DXY Rally Approaches Weekly Resistance Hurdle
The Dollar index has rallied nearly 6.5% from the yearly lows with the advance approaching confluence resistance at 94.14/27. Although broader outlook remains constructive, the near-term technical picture suggests price may be vulnerable heading into this key zone. Accordingly, our focus has remained on the majors and we’re looking for possible exhaustion this week.
Key Levels in Focus
DXY – Resistance at 94.14/27. Initial support channel support ~93.10, bullish invalidation at 92.52
EUR/USD – Key near-term support at 1.1705(subsequent support 1.1616). Resistance 1.1827 backed by 1.1915
AUD/USD – Critical support still 7480. Topside resistance objectives at 7565 & 7600- Key resistance 7636
GBPUSD – Risk is lower sub-1.35(resistance). Next beg support target at 1.33
