Strategy Webinar: Fed, NFP to Define USD Monthly Open Range

Webinar highlighting featured setups we’re tracking into the start of the month. Here are the updated targets & invalidation levels that matter.

Talking Points

  • Review of current / active setups in focus into the May open
  • Updated targets & invalidation levels
  • Join Michael for Live Weekly Trading Webinars on Mondays at 12:30GMT

The start of a new month brings new opportunities and heading into the May open the DXY finds itself just off the 2016 lows with immediate support seen at the 2016 open at 98.69. A break below this threshold shifts the focus lower in the index targeting 97.87 & the 100% extension at 97.67. Resistance & near-term bearish invalidation remains steady at 99.43/53.

See our 2Q projections and more in the DailyFX Trading Forecasts.

It’s a big week for event risk with the FOMC interest rate decision & U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) on tap. Keep in mind we also get the release of Canada employment figures on Friday (released at the same time as NFP) and could fuel some nice moves in USDCAD.
