Weekly Technical Outlook: USD Turn or Burn at Key Resistance

Weekly Technical Outlook: USD Turn or Burn at Key Resistance

Michael Boutros,

Markets are illustrating a perfect example of when there is clarity in price, but not in near-term trend. Simply put, technically prices remain within well-defined structural patterns, but recent price action offers little conviction on the immediate bias.

That said, today we took an in-depth look at the majors from a weekly, daily & intraday standpoint to get a larger perspective on where we are in trend. The dollar advance is eyeing long-term technical confluence and the focus this week is on the 94.03/20 resistance barrier.

Similarly, USDCHF is eyeing a long-term resistance confluence around ~9880s, and while I don’t want to get stung again trying to call a high, the advance looks vulnerable near-term while below this barrier.

A look at Bitcoin prices highlights the significance of the resistance barrier we turned from last week and leaves the cryptocurrency vulnerable for further losses near-term. Initial areas of interest for support are eyed around 5565 & 5423- look for a reaction at one of these levels.
