US Dollar on the Defensive Ahead of FOMC

It’s a major week of event risk with the FOMC interest rate decision and U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) on tap. The US Dollar Index reversed sharply just ahead of Fibonacci resistance last week with the decline now approaching the 61.8% retracement of the recent advance at 95.66. We’re on the lookout for a reaction here early in the week with broader risk weighted to the downside for the USD. In this webinar we review updated technical setups on DXY, EUR/USD, GBP/USD, Gold, USD/JPY, GBP/JPY, AUD/USD, and SPX.
