US Dollar Recovery Could Undermine Gains in AUD/USD & EUR/USD

US Dollar Recovery Could Undermine Gains in AUD/USD & EUR/USD

Dimitri Zabelin, Analyst

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL OUTLOOK:BULLISH

  • AUD/USD is at a critical turning point – will capitulation catalyze a sharp decline?
  • EUR/USD has surged for eight days straight but could decline ahead of resistance
  • DXY index has fallen to an 11-week low, though selling pressure may start abating

AUD/USD Outlook

AUD/USD has just punctured the lower lip of the 0.7032-0.6911 inflection range (purple-dotted lines), though doubt about lasting follow-through could catalyze a pullback. Capitulation at this key technical zone could also inspire sellers to enter the market and pressure AUD/USD into retesting former resistance-turned-support at 0.6642 (gold-dotted line).

EUR/USD Forecast

Since May 26, EUR/USD has risen over four percent, and has closed higher for eight consecutive days as it hovers at multi-week highs. The next obstacle the pair will have to confront may be the early-March swing-high at 1.1447 (upper gold-dotted line) where the pair had previously stalled before plunging almost seven percent. If EUR/USD capitulates before the feet of resistance, it could catalyze a broader pullback.

DXY Analysis

The US Dollar index (DXY) has closed lower for eight consecutive days after trading sideways throughout April. The Greenback is now hovering just above a narrow but critical support range between 96.60 and 96.52. Cracking that floor opens the door to retesting the mid-March swing-low at 95.04. However, if selling pressure abates, DXY may seek to retest former support-turned-resistance at 98.27.
