US Dollar Remains on the Defensive Post-Jackson Hole

The US Dollar Index (DXY) has remained on the defensive into the start of the week with the majors stretching into key inflection zones across the board. While the medium-term outlook remains weighted to the downside in the greenback, prices may be vulnerable near-term with a pullback to offer more favorable entries this week. Here are the levels that matter this week.

Key Levels in Focus

DXY – Look for initial support at 94.92/96 – break lower targets monthly open support at 94.56. Resistance at 95.70s.

EUR/USD – Initial support 1.1570, bullish invalidation 1.1510- Key resistance 1.1660/70- breach targets 1.1750.

USD/JPY – Focus on possible support at 110.60/80 (near-term bullish invalidation) – key resistance still 111.40/48.

Gold - Looking for a stretch into resistance at 1214/15- constructive while above 1195. Topside breach targets 1223.

Why does the average trader lose? Avoid these Mistakes in your trading

Highlighting this week’s economic calendar will be the second read on US 2Q GDP and the Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE- the Fed’s preferred inflationary gauge) on Thursday. Canada 2Q GDP and Eurozone CPI are also on tap this week and may offer further volatility in the respective pairs. Keep your eyes on the headlines as the tariff skirmish continues with news wires reporting a deal is forthcoming regarding NAFTA (specifically Mexico) early in the week.

In this webinar we review updated technical setups on DXY, EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF, Gold, NZD/USD, AUD/USD, AUD/NZD, Crude, USD/CAD, SPX, and NASDAQ.
