US Dollar Testing Yearly Highs Post-NFP, FOMC

Here we go again- This is the eighth attempt for the DXY to breach above the 200-week moving average and the focus is on this threshold heading into the start of the week. The summer doldrums are upon us and while markets remain range-bound, a broader look at price still has the majors pressing critical inflections zones early in the month. Patience pays during these time periods; remember, times of contracting price action typically precede larger surges in volatility. Simply put, things can / will change quickly- be ready and know the trading levels.

DXY – Looking for resistance ahead of yearly highs- Near-term support still 94.20/24
