Weekly Technical Outlook: Cryptocurrency Breakouts, USD Majors in Focus
- Review of current / active setups into the weekly open
- Review the Foundations of Technical Analysis mini-series
- Join Michael for Live Weekly Trading Webinars on Mondays at 12:30GMT
Breakouts in the cryptocurrencies have been central focus after Bitcoin ripped to fresh record highs last week. Likewise, Ethereum broke its monthly opening range with the rally now holding just below near-term resistance at 350/55.
The DXY starts off the week just below near-term resistance and while the index may have some more upside in the interim, the broader focus remains lower in the dollar. We took a close look at the majors, not all of which reflect this sentiment. As such, we’ll take each pair on its own merits with the Swissie and the Yen of particular interest to start the week.
