US Dollar Turns from Yearly Highs ahead of Jackson Hole
The US Dollar Index (DXY) failed just ahead of slope resistance last week on building divergence and we’re looking to further validate IF indeed a near-term high is in place. The USD crosses look clean with well-defined levels in view ahead of this week’s highly anticipated annual Economic Symposium in Jackson Hole Wyoming. While it’s unlikely we’ll get any new information from the Fed on the path of monetary policy, the greenback looks vulnerable after last week’s pullback and keeps the focus on USD Majors into the start of the session.
Key Levels in Focus
DXY – Look for resistance ahead of the high-day close at 96.71- Support 95.55, bullish invalidation 95.15
USD/CHF – Focus remains on break of the 9895-9991 consolidation zone (downside favored)
AUD/USD – Immediate focus is on a reaction at the 7327/36 pivot zone for guidance (longs vulnerable into this level).
