Technical Outlook for USD, Euro, USD/ZAR, Gold/Silver & More

Paul Robinson, Strategist

The US dollar is declining across the board, strengthening the backdrop to own currencies versus the greenback, particularly the euro. USD/ZAR is failing to find buyers and could soon resume lower. Precious metals continue to propel higher, more gains likely to come.

Struggling with confidence, want to learn more about what characteristics successful traders exhibit? Here are two guides for you – Building Confidence in Trading & Traits of a Successful Trader

Technical Highlights:

  • USD is weak across the board, EUR/USD breakout unfolding
  • USD/ZAR weak bounce bringing a wedge into view
  • Path of least resistance for gold & silver looks higher

USD weak across the board, EUR/USD breakout unfolding

The US dollar is exhibiting weakness pretty much everywhere you look. EUR/USD is on the verge of a confirmed breakout above the 2017 high should it close above today above 12092. On a close above, we will look to it as support on weakness. A minor pivot from 2014 at 12247 is eyed as potential resistance, but the 2008 trend-line over 12500 could be the next major stopping point.

EUR/USD: Daily

EUR/USD daily price chart

GBP/USD is very near a big point of resistance at 13659, which constitutes last year’s high and the gap-fill on the Monday following the ‘Brexit’ vote. Beyond there, attention will be on resistance at 13846. USD/JPY continues to decline out of a broken triangle, with support coming in at 11084, then the September 2016 trend-line near the 11000-mark.

USDCAD was rejected yesterday on a rest of the 2012 slope, and along with the broader theme of a weak dollar it looks poised for more weakness. AUD/USD and NZD/USD are both quite strong, but small pullbacks into trend-line support from December could offer spots to enter long.

USD/ZAR weak bounce bringing a wedge into view

This isn’t a pair we look at every day, but the weak price action morphing into a wedge below resistance could kick off another leg lower soon. It could use a little more development, but on further weakness the target is the 2008 spike-high (which acted as support in 2015); this arrives around 11.85.

USD/ZAR: 4-hr

In FX, we also looked at USD/SEK, USD/MXN, USD/INR, EUR/JPY, GBP/JPY, and GBP/AUD.

Path of least resistance for gold & silver still higher

Precious metals are getting a lift on the back of a weak USD and look poised to continue to gain further ground. Gold has a trend-line from 2013 around the 1340-mark, then the 2017 high at 1357. Silver has good trend-line support around the 200-day at 16.89, needs to clear through the 17.40s to continue higher. Favoring gold more at the moment.

Gold: Daily

Gold daily price chart

We touched on oil as it put in a key-reversal bar yesterday, but it didn’t develop at a notable point of resistance. This takes some of the reversal’s importance away, but still hints at short-term weakness at the least. Eyed support comes in at a slope from July around 62.80.
