USD Majors Face Slew of Headline Risks

It’s a week packed with major event risk and for the USD, the focus is on whether the recent pullback from resistance in the Dollar Index (DXY) has further to go. We reviewed recent setups highlighted on the USD crosses and heading into the start of the week, the levels are clear.

Key Levels in Focus

DXY – Initial resistance at 93.91 Bearish invalidation at 94.33. Initial support at 92.96 & 92.28/44

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)

GBP/USD – Key resistance at 1.3495-1.3504 (near-term bearish invalidation). Initial support 1.33 backed by 1.3182

For a complete breakdown of Michael’s trading strategy, review his Foundations of Technical Analysis series on Building a Trading Strategy

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.
