US Dollar Price Volatility Report & Implied Trading Ranges for Next Week

Rich Dvorak, Analyst

US DOLLAR PRICE OUTLOOK: IMPLIED VOLATILITY & TRADING RANGES FOR NEXT WEEK

  • The US Dollar is currently wedged between technical confluence provided by its 50-day and 200-day simple moving averages
  • USD price action turns to staggering event risk scheduled for next week with a FOMC rate decision in addition to Q3 US GDP, nonfarm payrolls, inflation and PMI data releases
  • Check out the US Dollar Price Volatility Report for daily commentary on the US Dollar with implied volatility and trading ranges included

The US Dollar continues to claw back recent downside with the DXY Index rebounding roughly 0.7% over the last 5 trading days. Nevertheless, there is a plethora of high-impact event risk scheduled for next week that stands to strongarm USD price action.

The US Dollar Index is currently wedged between technical support provided by its 200-DMA and technical resistance posed by its 50-DMA which will look to keep the greenback roughly contained. A breakout above or below these levels of confluence – likely sparked by a major fundamental catalyst over the coming days – could very well determine the US Dollar’s broader trend.

US DOLLAR IMPLIED VOLATILIY & TRADING RANGES (1-WEEK)

As has been the case, GBP/USD is expected to be the most volatile US Dollar currency pair next week with an implied volatility of 9.32%, though this is down sizably from last Friday’s reading of 19.78%. USD/JPY implied volatility of 5.40% seems peculiarly low given the currency pair’s sensitivity to changes in interest rate expectations and market sentiment, which could both fluctuate quite materially next week in response to high-impact event risk previously mentioned. Forex traders will likely keep close tabs on EUR/USD, AUD/USD and also USD/CAD considering the high-impact event risk coming out of Europe, Australia and Canada.
