USD Gains Post-FOMC on Updated Interest Rate Outlook

Markets have re-priced interest rate expectations on the back of last week’s FOMC policy meeting with consensus now calling for four hikes this year. The US Dollar is up more than 2% against all its major counter-parts year-to-date (save the Japanese Yen which is up 2%) with index (DXY) rallying more than 7.5% off the February lows to fresh yearly highs. The advance is currently testing the 200-week moving average and while the immediate threat is for a near-term pullback, the broader outlook remains constructive while above the 94-handle.

Key Levels in Focus

DXY – Initial resistance at 95 (200WMA) backed by 96.04/20. Initial support at 93.90s, Bullish invalidation at 92.28/50

EUR/USD – Price is testing 2016 slope support- break targets 1.1448. Key Resistance 1.1910/30

AUD/USD – Key support confluence at 7327. Initial resistance 7480

AUD/JPY – Testing key support zone at 81.50-82 – Break targets 80.57. Near-term resistance at 82.50/59
