The US Dollar continues to surge versus the CAD, AUD, and NZD. We think further USD gains are likely, but it is critical to watch the Euro, GBP, and JPY at these levels.

The Euro continues to hit fresh lows against the US Dollar and now trades just above key volume-based support near the May low at the $1.08 mark. A move below would target similar volume and price congestion levels nearer to $1.0650, while previous support at $1.10 acts as near-term resistance.

The British Pound has stopped and reversed at major volume-based resistance levels at $1.5650, and a continued hold below shifts focus towards support near $1.54. A break above $1.5650 would leave little in the way of resistance until the year-to-date high above $1.59, but risks seem weighed to the downside as it fails at a key price ceiling.

The US Dollar has traded above major volume-based congestion levels near ¥123.50 against the Yen, and a hold above shifts focus to major highs at the ¥125.50 mark. The top of the congestion range now acts as support at ¥123.50.

The Australian Dollar has broken below major lows at the $0.7400 mark, and focus now shifts towards major congestion levels from 2008 surrounding $0.7250. Former support turns resistance at $0.7400, while a move above leaves little notable volume resistance until $0.7550.

The Sterling has made a substantial reversal versus the Yen and now nears important volume-based price resistance starting at ¥194.50 which extends to major highs at ¥195.50. There is no comparable support until ¥191.50, however.

The Euro has failed to move convincingly above key volume-based resistance at ¥137, and instead it now trades below the ¥135 mark. We can see notable volume congestion at ¥134, but a break below leaves little in the way of a move towards the psychologically significant ¥130 level.

The US Dollar has traded above important volume-based resistance of SFr0.9500 versus the Swiss Franc, and the USD/CHF now targets a significant volume peak starting at SFr0.9650. Former resistance now turns into support at 0.95.

The US Dollar has surged above post-financial-crisis highs versus the Canadian Dollar, and there is no notable volume-based price level to act as near-term resistance as the USD/CAD trades just short of the psychologically significant C$1.3000 mark.

The New Zealand Dollar has crashed below all notable volume-based support levels and also 2010 lows near $0.6800. There is little foreseeable support until the July, 2009 low at $0.6200 as momentum clearly favors further declines. Near-term resistance starts at former support at $0.6700.
