US Dollar Approaching Yearly Highs Ahead of FOMC, NFP – Gold Poised

It's Fed week - the highly anticipated FOMC interest rate decision on tap into the close of the month with US Non-Farm Payrolls looming on Friday. Last week’s stretch higher in the Dollar leaves the index vulnerable heading into the August open with setups across the majors in play this week. In this webinar we review updated technical setups on TNX (10yr Treasury Yield), DXY, EUR/USD, USD/CHF, USD/CAD, GBP/USD, Gold, Silver, USD/JPY, EUR/JPY, AUD/JPY & BTC (Bitcoin).

Key Trade Levels in Focus

DXY – Key topside resistance at 98.33/42- look for a reaction there IF reached. Initial support at 98.87 with near-term bullish invalidation at 97.50. A topside breach exposes the 2016 yearly open at 98.69.

EUR/USDEuro registered a fresh yearly low last week- DXY did not. Shorts may be vulnerable near-term while above 1.11. Key resistance now back at 1.1182/86 with a breach above 1.1220 needed to suggest a more significant low is in place. A break lower targets 1.1060s.

USD/CAD – Initial support at 1.3145 backed by 1.3115 with bullish invalidation at 1.3076/85. Resistance at 1.3193 backed by 1.3226- area of interest for exhaustion / short-entries IF reached.

Gold – An outside-day reversal in Gold prices off the 1433 resistance target last week leaves XAU/USD vulnerable for further losses before resumption of the broader uptrend

Silver – XAG/USD testing major resistance confluence at 16.61/66- immediate long-bias at risk while below. Initial support around ~16.21 – looking for downside exhaustion ahead of 15.50 for entries. A topside breach keeps the focus on 17.31/52.
