FX Markets Brace for Yellen - Ethereum Breakout Accelerates

Michael Boutros, Strategist

Price action hasn’t been all that inspiring lately but it’s a good time to have your levels all mapped out for when volatility returns. The DXY is heading into near-term support to open the week and likewise we’ll be watching EURUSD.

Cryptocurrencies continue be of interest at these levels with a breakout in Ethereum prices keeping our focus. Initial resistance targets are eyed at 347/50 where the 78.6% retracement of the June decline converges on up-slope resistance. Initial support now 314.
