Talking Points

We’re looking for some more upside potential in the USD with a near-term slope in the DXY highlighting support at 93.06 to start the week. Likewise the Euro also is trading within its own near-term downslope after reversing off resistance last week.

The Aussie crosses are in focus heading into the release of the RBA minutes tonight with AUDUSD trading just above a significant support confluence just lower at 7820/30s- Look for a reaction there. AUDJPY already tested key support last week with the 85.45-86.93 range in focus to start the session.

We’ll also be looking for a low in the sterling crosses early in the week with the cable trading just above support. GBPJPY on the other hand, remains within the confines of a clean descending pitchfork formation and we’d need to see a recovery back above the overnight Asia highs to suggest a larger recovery is underway. A break lower targets 140.70s.
