Key Levels in Focus

DXY – Pullback testing uptrend support with a break below 96.27 needed to suggest a larger reversal is underway targeting 96. Resistance / near-term bearish invalidation at 96.70.

EUR/USD – Price is trading just below near-term resistance at 1.1375 with a more significant confluence region at 1.1398-1.1407- a breach / close above needed to fuel next leg higher. Support / near-term bullish invalidation steady at 1.13.

AUD/USD – Focus remains on key resistance into the 72-handle with the immediate advance vulnerable while below. Weekly open support at 7135 with near-term bullish invalidation steady at the low-week close at 7115.

Gold – Price remains vulnerable sub-1341 near-term. Initial support 1320 backed by 1311 with bullish invalidation steady at 1302. Topside breach targets the 2018 HDC at 1348/50 (key resistance).
