US Dollar Testing Yearly Highs

US 3Q GDP figures were mixed on Friday and although the headline print beat estimates, a weaker than expected read on Core PCE (Personal Consumption Expenditure) casts a shadow on the inflationary outlook. The greenback was under considerable pressure after on Friday with the US Dollar Index (DXY) turning from the yearly high-day close at 96.71- A close above this region is needed to keep the focus higher with the long-bias at risk while below this level near-term. Technical setups on the commodities also keep the gold and crude trades in focus this week- here are the targets and invalidation levels that matter.

Key Trade Levels in Focus

DXY – Resistance at the high-day close at 96.71 backed by 97.00/10 – risk for exhaustion at one of these levels.Support / near-term bullish invalidation at 96.07/13.

EUR/USD – Price would need to stabilize above 1.1345 early in the week- resistance breach above 1.1432 to validate a reversal. A break lower exposes yearly low at 1.1301.

USD/CAD – Critical resistance range at 1.3130/55- looking for possible exhaustion while below. Support at 1.3067/75- break there needed to shift focus lower.

USD/JPY – Looking for failure into 113.08/27- Break below yearly up-slope support / 112 would be exposes 111.46/ 60.

Gold – Critical resistance at 1235/38. Interim support 1221/22 backed by 1214. Bullish invalidation at 1208.

Crude Oil – Immediate focus to start the week is on key support zone at 65.27/82, short-bias is at risk while above this level near-term. Bearish invalidation steady at 69.17/60. A break lower exposes 64.40 backed by the June low at 63.57.
