US Dollar Majors and the Post-FOMC Drift

While last week’s FOMC interest rate decision did fuel a surge in volatility, prices largely remain range-bound with the USD majors broadly holding within the March opening-range. That said, the longer-term technical levels are clear and we’re looking to validate our near-term outlook on numerous setups early in the week. In this webinar we review updated technical setups on DXY, EUR/USD, NZD/USD, AUD/USD, USD/CAD, Crude Oil (WTI), Gold, and S&P 500 (SPX).

Key Levels in Focus

DXY – Post-FOMC recovery vulnerable ahead of 97.10. Interim support / near-term bullish invalidation at the monthly open / 61.8% retracement at 96.15/22.

EUR/USD – Initial resistance at 1.1340 with bearish invalidation at 1.1370/80. Support at 1.1280 with critical slope support at ~1.1250s.

NZD/USD – Price remains vulnerable while below critical resistance at 6930/41. Interim support 6865 – a break there exposes 6818 and the monthly open / 100-day moving average at 6806/07 -look for a bigger reaction there IF reached.

Gold – Price targeting key near-term resistance range at 1321/23 – a breach / close above is needed to fuel the next leg higher targeting 1332. Interim support 1313 with near-term bullish invalidation at 1302.
