US Dollar Technical Outlook: USD/IDR, USD/PHP, USD/MYR, USD/SGD

US Dollar Technical Outlook: USD/IDR, USD/PHP, USD/MYR, USD/SGD

Daniel Dubrovsky, Strategist

US Dollar, USD/IDR, USD/PHP, USD/MYR, USD/SGD – ASEAN Technical Analysis

  • USD/IDR gains curbed by 50-day SMA after 20-day taken out
  • USD/PHP downtrend resumes, establishing floor at 2017 lows
  • USD/MYR may fall as USD/SGD faces key falling tend line next

Indonesian Rupiah Technical Outlook

The US Dollar rose against the Indonesian Rupiah after USD/IDR pushed above the 20-day simple moving average (SMA). However, further gains were curbed by the 50-day SMA as well as direct intervention from the Bank of Indonesia, as expected. The latter may step in should IDR keep weakening. Key resistance sits above as highs from May 2019 (14484 – 14525). A turn lower here would place the focus on the 20-day SMA as well as the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level at 14240. Downtrend resumption entails falling under 13935.

Philippine Peso Technical Outlook

The Philippine Peso extended gains against the US Dollar as USD/PHP overcame fading downside momentum warning signs. As the pair fell through the 2018 low, prices paused declines on the 2017 floor (49.26 – 49.37). This area seems to have established itself as key support. Falling through here opens the door to testing the 61.8% Fibonacci extension at 48.93. The slope of depreciation seems to be guided by a falling support line from May. Overturning the downtrend entails taking out falling resistance from March.

Malaysian Ringgit Technical Outlook

The US Dollar could be at risk to the Malaysian Ringgit after USD/MYR closed under the 20-day SMA, opening the door to a near term bearish technical bias. A close under 4.2650 could set the pair to retest lows from June (4.2350 – 4.2450). Confirming a break under this area exposes the March low at 4.1600. In the event of a turn higher from here, keep a close eye on the falling trend line from March – red line. That, as well as the 4.2930 – 4.3030 inflection range, could keep further gains at bay.

Singapore Dollar Technical Outlook

The Singapore Dollar continues to consolidate around the 20-day SMA against the US Dollar. Thus far, prices have remained wedged between support (1.3872) and resistance (1.3993). Yet, the longer the pair ranges, the closer the falling trend line from March approaches. This resistance could reinstate the dominant downward trajectory, perhaps opening the door to testing 1.3872 on the way towards June lows (1.3760 – 1.3805). A push above the trend line exposes the 1.4070 – 1.4113 inflection range.
