  • Long $USDCNH was one of my favorite setups for the 2nd quarter btw. I maintain, I like the fundamentals; but the greenback's recent battering needs to relent before this can perform
  • The Dollar's tumble this past week was an abrupt one. We'll see if inflation pressures trigger a shift in risk and rate expectations in the US which could turn the USD's bearings. Meanwhile, a pair I haven't highlighted ... https://t.co/yXl1aoOlIy https://t.co/TWV7tqv2y8

NFP Preview and Trade Setups in EUR/USD, AUD/USD, and USD/JPY

NFP Preview and Trade Setups in EUR/USD, AUD/USD, and USD/JPY

Christopher Vecchio, CFA, Senior Strategist

Talking Points:

- EURUSD rebound short-lived; watching flag 1.2560-1.2675.

- AUDUSD turns back at 8-EMA; USDJPY supported above 108.25.

- See the DailyFX US Dollar Economic Calendar for Friday, October 3, 2014.

Despite recent price action across several USD-pairs, mainly AUDUSD, EURUSD, and USDJPY, the US Dollar's 12-week bull run is very much intact. Mainly, we've seen key technical momentum levels tested over the last two days in these pairs, and as a result of some bullish overnight price action, the US Dollar rally is back on track - for now.

We say for now due to the overhang of significant event risk - mainly the September US labor market report due at 12:30 GMT today. Any print below +200K will stir disappoint in a stretched US Dollar market, which could put pressure back on the buck's key technical levels.

See the above video for an overview of the key technical levels guiding the AUDUSD, EURUSD, and USDJPY heading into and after NFPs today.
