The DXY breakdown is in focus to start the week with the index slipping to some key levels. The focus remains lower sub-94.50 with support coming up at 93.52 & the 2016 low-day close at 93.06. The immediate short-bias is at risk heading into these levels however as sentiment on a few USD pairs stretches into extremes. Bottom line, the dollar is vulnerable for some near-term exhaustion lows down here with the FOMC interest rate decision and 2Q U.S. GDP on tap this week.
Cable has some room for another pull-back, but remains constructive while above 1.2920. Key resistance remains 1.3121. Keep in mind we have UK GDP on tap this week as well.

AUDJPY reversed off resistance last week with the pullback now eyeing key near-term support into 87.55/64. The focus is on this zone to start the week- a break lower would risk a decline into more significant support at 86.93-87.13.
Gold is nearing key resistance at the median-line extending off the 2016 highs, currently around 1260- The immediate long-bias is at risk heading into this threshold with a breach above needed to fuel the next leg higher in gold. That said, look for interim support at 1248 with bullish invalidation set to the monthly open at 1241.
