Heading into the final 24 hours of the trading week and with heavy-hitting event risk next week, major technical levels for the dollar and equities may hold. For the Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index, a collection of support is seen around 10,365 while the S&P 500 is lurking menacingly at record highs. In turn, that may curb the AUDUSD's reversal ambitions and sabotage a USDJPY breakout. Yet, the pound may have a spark to overcome that anchor. The 3Q UK GDP release find GBPUSD in tight congestion, EURGBP setting up the foundation for a reversal and GBPAUD ready to tip the sterling back into a major fundamental trend. Continuation or reversal? Breakout or range? We discuss the scenarios in today's Trading Video.
