USD Reverses from Key Resistance Zone
Last week we highlighted a key confluence resistance range in the US Dollar Index (DXY) at 91.20/27 and, “although the broader outlook remains constructive, the near-term technical picture suggests price may be vulnerable heading into this key zone.” The USD closed just below this threshold on Friday and the risk remains for further losses while below this threshold.
Key Levels in Focus
DXY – Resistance at 94.20/27. Initial support at 93.43 & 92.64, broaderbullish invalidation at 92.28
EURUSD – Key near-term support at 1.1705(subsequent support 1.1616). Resistance 1.1827 backed by 1.1915
USDCHF – Support at 9846/52- Resistance & near-term bearish invalidation at 9908
