US Dollar Reversal Taking Shape? USD/SGD, USD/MYR, USD/PHP, USD/IDR

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

  • US Dollar trying to reverse higher against ASEAN FX
  • USD/SGD, USD/MYR and USD/PHP broke trend lines
  • USD/IDR in a relatively neutral setting, eyes resistance

Singapore Dollar Technical Outlook

The US Dollar could be readying to reverse against the Singapore Dollar after USD/SGD closed above the key falling trend line from March. Confirmation of a breakout appears to be lackluster as prices retreated back into the 1.3670 – 1.3628 inflection zone. In the event of further gains, keep a close eye on the medium-term 50-day Simple Moving Average (SMA). That could reinstate the focus to the downside towards the August low at 1.3561. Otherwise, the pair could shoot to retest the 1.3805 – 1.3820 inflection zone.

Malaysian Ringgit Technical Outlook

The US Dollar may extend gains against the Malaysian Ringgit after USD/MYR confirmed a breakout above near term falling resistance from July. Prices now face the midpoint of the Fibonacci extension at 4.1835 on the way towards a potential falling trend line from March – red-dashed line on the chart below. A resumption of the dominant downtrend entails closing under 4.1370 should prices turn lower ahead. Otherwise, the pair could enter a consolidative setting.

Philippine Peso Technical Outlook

The US Dollar has broken above key falling resistance from May against the Philippine Peso. Yet, upside confirmation has been somewhat lacking. USD/PHP has been idling under the October 2016 high at 48.66. A push above this price would expose the 50-day SMA, opening the door to reversing the dominant downtrend from March. Otherwise, a close under 48.36 exposes the November 2016 low. For ASEAN fundamental analysis, check out this week’s outlook here.

Indonesian Rupiah Technical Outlook

The US Dollar remains in a neutral setting against the Indonesian Rupiah. USD/IDR has been ranging between 14915 and 14525 since late June, pausing the bounce off rising support from January after extended declines throughout April and May. A push above the upper boundary opens the door to resuming gains on the way towards highs from 2018. Guiding the pair higher could be the 50-day SMA. Otherwise, a close under the lower boundary exposes 14342.
