US Dollar Index Testing Key Resistance Early in the Week

The US Dollar Index (DXY) is testing the first of two major resistance targets at 96.13- a level defined by the yearly high-week close and, “a close above this threshold would be needed to keep the long-bias in play with such a scenario targeting parallel resistance (red) / yearly highs at 96.98. Key support still 93.65/89.” The implications are similar for the Euro with the low-week reversal highlighting 1.1436 as a level of interest. Here are the levels that matter this week.

Key Levels in Focus

DXY – Resistance at 96.13 & 96.98 (key) – both areas of interest for possible near-term exhaustion

EUR/USD – Looking for support early in the week while above the yearly low-week close at 1.1436.

Risk is lower sub-1.1603 (weekly reversal close)

USD/JPY – Initial support at 113.08- break lower would expose 112.65. Weekly open resistance at113.76 backed by 114.37/50(bearish invalidation).

Gold –– Looking for price support ahead of 1180 for the long-bias to remain viable. Key resistance / bearish invalidation still 1215.

Crude Oil – Focus remains on key resistance zone at 73.80-74.94to start the week- breach exposes 77.26. Support at 71.10/20 with bullish invalidation at 67.83.
