EUR/USD – Key near-term support at1.1616/36. Resistance 1.1827 backed by 1.1910 & 1.1947/61

AUD/USD – Constructive while above 7513. Topside resistance objectives at 7632 backed by 7689 & 7709 (head & shoulders measured objective)

Highlighting this week’s economic calendar are central bank interest rate decisions from the FOMC, the ECB (European Central Bank) and the BoJ (Bank of Japan). Keep in mind we also have the Nuclear Summit in Singapore with the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un likely to keep the market headline driven over the next 24 hours. In this webinar we review updated technical setups on DXY, EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, AUDUSD, USDCAD, Gold, AUD/JPY, Silver, USD/CHF and EUR/GBP.
