Euro to Fresh Yearly Lows – More to go?
The US Dollar Index is testing fresh yearly highs early in the week but the index is pressing up against structural resistance. Likewise, Euro’s drop to fresh yearly lows puts EUR/USD just above confluence support at 1.1239- the focus is on a reaction off these levels. A review of the commodity bloc also points out critical inflections zones on Gold and Crude Oil to start the week- here are the targets and invalidation levels that matter.
Key Levels in Focus
DXY – Break to fresh yearly highs has price testing structural resistance- Key support 96.13. A topside breach targets 97.87
EUR/USD – Looking for exhaustion at the 1.1239 support zone. Daily close above 1.1432 needed to suggest a more significant low is in place. A break lower this week exposes 1.1164/86.
AUD/USD – Looking for support at 7191 & 7160 for entries. Key resistance still 7327/36
Gold – Approaching critical support confluence at 1200/02 (near-term bullish invalidation). A breach above 1215 needed to alleviate downside pressure.
