Talking Points

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

The dust is settling from last week’s flurry of central bank rate decisions and the DXY is holding a critical range just above key downtrend support at 96.47-97.78 – We’ll be looking for a break this week for near-term guidance.

Yen weakness has been the play with the crosses opening the week at some key thresholds. Our focus is on a pullback in these crosses to offer better long-entries. Favored setups reviewed on GBPJPY, EURJPY & NZDJPY. Keep in mind we have the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) interest rate decision on tap on Wednesday night in New York.
