US Dollar Falls Post-NFP

Friday’s US Non-Farm Payrolls report showed continued strength in the labor markets while highlighting subdued underlying wage growth. The USD sold-off into the close of the week with the Dollar Index (DXY) closing below daily support. Heading into the start of the week we’re looking for some recovery in the greenback with our broader focus weighted to the downside while below monthly open resistance at 94.63.

Key Levels in Focus

DXY – Look for resistance ahead of 94.20/27- next support targets 93.69 & ~93.40s.

EUR/USD – Constructive while above 1.1672- topside resistance objectives at 1.1779 & 1.1827/52

GBP/USD – Risk for near-term exhaustion but focus is higher while above 1.3164. Topside resistance objectives at 1.336 & 1.3450.

USDCAD – Looking to validate this break of key weekly support- Focus is lower sub 1.3132 for now with support targets eyed at ~1.3046 & ~1.2985.
