Key Trade Levels in Focus

DXY – Focus is on key resistance at the 2018 high-week close at 97.42 and the 61.8% retracement at 97.87– both levels of interest for possible exhaustion. Initial Support at 96.84 backed by key support 95.66/94 and bullish invalidation at 95.03.

EUR/USD – Focus is on a break of a critical range between 1.1186 – 1.1347. Topside breach above needed to validate the breakout – Support break below 1.1130s to mark resumption lower.

NZD/USD – Break of monthly opening-range leaves risk lower sub-6730. Upcoming support targets at the lower parallel around ~6650s backed by the 61.8% retracement at 6633.

USD/CAD – Focus is on a break of a well-defined range between 1.3284-1.3403. Ultimately a breach above 1.3447 is needed to validate resumption higher. A break sub-1.3234/48 (bullish invalidation) is needed to validate a breakdown.

Gold – Price it is testing the yearly range lows– Near-term risk is lower sub-1291 with support eyed at 1275/76 backed by 1253/58- look for a bigger reaction there If reached. A topside breach looks to challenge 1302 (bearish invalidation).
