The start of a new month / quarter brings new opportunities with multiple crosses and commodities at key levels to start the week. The Dow & S&P closed out their 6th consecutive quarterly gain last month with the major indices still in a precarious position into the April open. We’ll want to tread lightly as prices carve out the initial opening ranges but there’s lots of clear setups to operate on. The Euro & Japanese Yen remain the strongest performers vs the dollar into the U.S. open with Cable & the Loonie trading lower to open of the session.

From an event risk standpoint, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) interest rate decision kicks things off tonight with the U.S. Durable Goods Orders, ISM Non-Manufacturing & the March NFP employment report highlighting the economic docket this week. Updated technical setups and key levels discussed (in this order) on DXY, EURUSD, GBPUSD, EURJPY, S&P 500, Crude Oil, Gold, Silver, EURCAD, USDJPY, EURAUD, AUDJPY, GBPAUD & CADJPY.
