Weaker than expected US Durable goods orders early in the week have fueled some dollar weakness early in the session taking the DXY into near-term support around 97.10. Key support / bullish invalidation remains steady at 96.91/96.
Kiwi remains on the radar for possible exhaustion with the EUR & CAD our favored plays on a weaker dollar. Keep in mind we have key US inflation data on tap into the close of the week / month and it’s a good time to be extra nimble / reduce leverage.
