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.

Key Trade Levels in Focus

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

USD/JPY – Looking for resistance ahead of the monthly open at 111.88- Key support still 110.70/88.

EUR/USD – Testing critical support zone at 1.1529/54. Key resistance at 1.1616

GBP/USD – Key support confluence rests at 1.2877, looking for a reaction there. Resistance at 1.3164
