EUR/USD, AUD/USD, DXY & More – Charts for Next Week
EUR/USD is finding it difficult to rise above a threshold we’ve had penciled in as resistance around the 11072 level. There have been several intra-day attempts to rally above but all have failed to close below. The minor reversals we are seeing suggests a push lower could come soon.
Looking lower, there is the trend-line off the October low to take into consideration, but at this time it isn’t viewed as a strong form of support. Below there, 10989, the monthly low, is the first meaningful level of support. Break that and down to the cycle low under 10900 in September looks to be the next move. To turn the picture bullish a lot of work will be needed given that the broader trend is lower.

AUD/USD has a line running right around the 6800-threshold, the pair has danced around it the past few days. Overall, though, Aussie looks headed lower as the broader trend is lower as well as the one off the October 31 high. Looking lower, minor support clocks in at 6723/10, followed by strong support around the 6700 line down to 6670.

The US Dollar Index (DXY) may have carved its pullback low this week, a higher-low from the low created on the first day of the month. This could set up the index to rally in similar fashion as it has over the past 14 months after carving out a strong swing-low (i.e. – Nov 1 low).
If this is to be the case, then the DXY should soon rally beyond 98.45 and gain traction for a move back towards the October 1 high at 99.67. In this low-volatility environment that feels like a big ask, but certainly doable in the weeks ahead of the new year.
