USD, AUD/USD, GBP/USD – Charts for Next Week

USD, AUD/USD, GBP/USD – Charts for Next Week

Paul Robinson, Strategist

Charts in Focus:

  • US Dollar Index looking for new cycle highs
  • AUD/USD could be at 2009 levels again soon
  • GBP/USD broke support, watch 200-day

US Dollar Index (DXY) strength is continuing this morning for a 5th straight day, we’ll have to see if it can maintain or even further along following the release of NFPs. A close above 98.54 puts the index in open space to trade towards the October 1 high at 99.67 and the 100-line. There will likely be some bumps along the way as volatility remains low and keeps price action choppy, but the general trading bias is for more USD strength.

AUD/USDis extremely close to trading at new cycle lows below the 6670-mark from October. This is a big area around here with several powerful lows since August, thus making a break potentially important because at that point it will be trading at levels Aussie hasn’t seen since 2009. A bit of a hold and then break may make for a congestion pattern for traders to use as a set-up. Given the general trend and tone longs hold little appeal from where I sit.

GBP/USDbroke important support yesterday via the 12940/3000-area. The break gave it clearance below a trend-line from November and good short-term horizontal support. After the upside fake-out into Jan 31 and downside breakdown now developing, looking for selling to come in and take Cable to around the 200-day MA.
