Dollar 2020 Outlook: EUR/USD, USD/CAD, AUD/USD Technical Charts

Dollar 2020 Outlook: EUR/USD, USD/CAD, AUD/USD Technical Charts

Michael Boutros, Strategist

The US Dollar is targeting key technical targets into the close of 2019 with the majors eyeing major inflection zones near trend extremes. While further Dollar losses are expected in the months ahead, the immediate decline may be vulnerable as we kick-off January trade and we’re looking for a reaction into the open. These are the updated targets and invalidation levels that matter on the Euro, Canadian Dollar and Australian Dollar weekly price charts.

Euro Price Chart – EUR/USD Weekly

Euro Price Chart - EUR/USD Weekly - Technical Outlook - Trade Forecast

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; EUR/USD on Tradingview

Notes: In my last Euro Weekly Price Outlook we noted a constructive bias on EUR/USD while above the 1.0976/94 support threshold with key topside resistance objectives eyed at 1.1187-1.1209. Price has been testing this critical Fibonacci confluence for the past four-weeks and defines the December opening-range highs. Look for a pivot off this threshold into the yearly open with a breach / close above the 2019 January channel line needed to fuel / validate a larger turn in price. Initial support remains with the 1.44% parallel (currently ~1.1060s) with broader bullish invalidation steady at 1.0976. Review my latest Euro Price Outlook for a closer look at the EUR/USD near-term technical trade levels.

Euro Trader Sentiment – EUR/USD Price Chart

Euro Trader Sentiment - EUR/USD Price Chart - Trade Outlook - Technical Forecast
  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-short EUR/USD - the ratio stands at -1.52 (39.74% of traders are long) – bullish reading
  • Long positions are 11.34% higher than yesterday and 24.81% lower from last week
  • Short positions are11.14% higher than yesterday and 29.43% higher from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests EUR/USD prices may continue to rise. Yet traders are less net-short than yesterday but more net-short from last week and the combination of current positioning and recent changes gives us a further mixed EUR/USD trading bias from a sentiment standpoint.

Canadian Dollar Price Chart – USD/CAD Weekly

Canadian Dollar Price Chart - USD/CAD Weekly - Loonie Trade Outlook - Technical Forecast

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; USD/CAD on Tradingview

Notes: In my last Canadian Weekly Price Outlook we noted that, “USD/CAD responded downtrend support AND resistance into the open of the month and the immediate focus is on a break of last week’s range for guidance” -with a downside break ultimately favored. A five-week consecutive decline takes price back towards key support at the lower bounds of a multi-month consolidation patter at 1.3052/58- look for a reaction there into the January open with a break / close below needed to keep the focus on subsequent objectives at the 100% Fibonacci extension at 1.2972 and 1.2863. Resistance steady at 1.3152 with bearish invalidation set to the 75% parallel, currently just shy of 1.33. Review my latest Canadian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the USD/CAD near-term technical trade levels.

Canadian Dollar Trader Sentiment – USD/CAD Price Chart

Canadian Dollar Trader Sentiment - USD/CAD Price Chart - Loonie Technical Outlook - Trade Forecast
  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-long USD/CAD - the ratio stands at +1.87 (65.18% of traders are long) – bearish reading
  • Long positions are 16.53% higher than yesterday and 8.18% higher from last week
  • Short positions are6.60% higher than yesterday and 18.12% lower from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests USD/CAD prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday & last week, and the combination of current positioning and recent changes gives us a stronger USD/CAD-bearish contrarian trading bias from a sentiment standpoint.

Australian Dollar Price Chart – AUD/USD Weekly

Australian Dollar Price Chart - Aussie Weekly - AUD/USD Trade Outlook - Technical Forecast

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; AUD/USD on Tradingview

Notes: In my last Australian Dollar Weekly Price Outlook we noted a constructive outlook while above 6800 with initial topside targets eyed at 7013 and the 2019 objective yearly open / 61.8% retracement at 7042/59(critical). Aussie is attempting a fifth consecutive weekly rally with the advance now within striking distance just ahead of the yearly close. Initial support now 6927 with bullish invalidation raised to the 2016 low at 6827. Look for a breach above 60 in weekly RSI to mark a change in the momentum profile- that would mark the highest reading since the January 2018 high.

Australian Dollar Trader Sentiment – AUD/USD Price Chart

Australian Dollar Trader Sentiment - AUD/USD Price Chart - Aussie Trade Outlook - Technical Forecast
  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-short AUD/USD - the ratio stands at -1.06 (48.5% of traders are long) – neutral reading
  • Long positions are 9.48% higher than yesterday and 12.07% lower from last week
  • Short positions are11.98% higher than yesterday and 7.39% higher from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests AUD/USD prices may continue to rise. Traders are further net-short than yesterday & last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes suggests a more bullish-AUD/USD contrarian trading bias from a sentiment standpoint.
