Key Trade Levels in Focus

DXY – Interim resistance at 97.58/64 backed by 97.87 (key). Downside support / near-term bullish invalidation at 97.17 – look for a reaction there IF reached.

EUR/USD – Price is rebounding off Fibonacci support at 1.1205with more significant support just lower at 1.181/86 – both areas of interest for possible exhaustion. Initial resistance 1.1251/56 with a breach above near-term downslope resistance needed to suggest a larger turn is underway in Euro.

GBP/USD – Near-term bearish invalidation at 1.2632/36 heading into FOMC / BOE interest rate decisions. A break of the May lows would expose 1.2470.

AUD/USD – Price breakdown targeting key lateral support at 6855 & 6828 – looking for a reaction off one of these levels. Monthly open resistance at 6926 with a breach above 6944 needed to shift the broader focus higher in Aussie. A downside break would expose the yearly lows at 6745.

Gold – The gold price rally failed at slope resistance last week on building divergence and leaves the immediate advance at risk into the start of the week. Interim support at 137 backed by 1322. A topside breach targets subsequent resistance objectives at 1366.
