Failure of the Trump healthcare overall has brought into question the administration’s ability to implement new policy with broader risk assets markets under pressure to start the week. Heading into the close of the month, our attention turns to commodities & commodity currencies as the USD remains under pressure. The DXY has broken below a key support threshold noted last week at 9943/53, with this level now serving as near-term resistance. Key support for the index comes in just lower at 98.60/70 where the 2016 open converges on the 200-day moving average and basic slope support extending off last year’s low.
From an event risk standpoint, traders will be eyeing the third and final release on U.S. 4Q GDP on Thursday with consensus estimates calling for an annualized uptick to 2.0%. Keep in mind we have central bank rate decisions on tap from the Reserve Bank of South Africa & Banco De Mexico on the same day. Updated technical setups and key levels discussed (in this order) on DXY, EURJPY, S&P 500, DAX, Nikkei 225, NZDUSD, AUDUSD, AUDNZD, NZDCAD, Crude Oil, Gold, Silver, NZDJPY, GBPUSD, USDMXN & USDZAR.
