The U.S. Dollar looks like headed for more selling versus its major counterparts, with a couple of the more appealing charts residing in the Euro and Canadian Dollar. The Buck is seen as likely to drop against other major currencies, but the set-ups are a little murkier elsewhere. Gold is rising again today, firmly pressing up into a long-term resistance zone that is seen as a potential near-term threat to the rally.

Technical Highlights:

  • EURUSD short-term bull-flag readying for a breakout
  • USDCAD carving out a potentially bearish price sequence
  • Gold price rallying into major long-term resistance

For forecasts and educational guides, check them out on the DailyFX Trading Guides page.

EURUSD short-term bull-flag readying for a breakout

The Euro has been stalling as of late, treading water. This price action has a bull-flag building on the 4-hr time-frame that should soon lead to higher prices. A rally might not prove very lasting, though, as resistance begins clocking in around 11280 up to 11350, where several angles of resistance reside (see chart below).

USDCAD carving out a potentially bearish price sequence

USDCAD posted a reversal candle on the weekly time-fame prior to this week. This has the current climb higher at risk of only acting as a counter-trend rally before another drop comes. On the 4-hr time-frame the channel structure off the July low is at risk of breaking if a head-and-shoulders pattern should trigger. The right shoulder still needs to develop, but if it is to do-so then it likely to happen in the next day or two.

Gold price rallying into major long-term resistance

Gold is pushing into a long-term resistance zone created by bottoms formed during the topping process after the 2011 peak. The zone from ~1522/75 could dent the current rally, even though it appears set to extend towards even higher levels. Watch how price action plays out in the near-term; a strong turnabout or reversal on the daily time-frame.
