Key Trade Levels in Focus

DXY – The Dollar recovery remains vulnerable while below the high-day close at 98.40. Support at 97.21/31 with a break / close below 96.98-97.02 needed to suggest a larger correction is underway. A topside breach would exposes 98.69.

EUR/USD – Near-term resistance at 1.1167/74 with bearish invalidation at 1.1186/89- a breach / close above there is needed to suggest a larger recovery is underway in Euro. Initial support at 1.1106 with key support at 1.1066/75- weakness beyond this threshold would keep the focus on the yearly lows at 1.1027.

USD/CADLoonie remains in consolidation just below key resistance at 1.3338/55. Near-term support at 1.3252 – a break below this threshold would shift the focus towards monthly open support at 1.3191. A topside breach / close is needed to mark resumption targetingthe median-line (~1.34) and1.3435/37.

Gold Prices- Focus is on a key pivot zone in gold we’ve been tracking at 1522/26. A close above would leave the breakout viable targeting 1558 and the upper parallels. Key support / near-term bullish invalidation at 1494/96.
