Key Trade Levels in Focus

US Dollar – DXY testing big resistance early in the week at 98.83/94- looking for a reaction up here at downtrend resistance with the near-term recovery at risk while below. Weekly open support at 98.50 with a break below 98.19 needed to fuel a leg lower in the Dollar. A topside breach exposes the 2017 uncovered close at 99.98.

EUR/USD – Looking for support / a low ahead of 1.0956 IF Euro is heading higher. Weekly open resistance at 1.1016 with a breach above 1.1073 needed to shift the broader focus higher. A downside break exposes the yearly lows at 1.0926.

USD/CAD – The USD/CAD price rally remains vulnerable sub 1.3307. Weekly open support at 1.3258 with a break there exposing 1.3222 and the 1.32-handle- both areas of interest for possible exhaustion IF reached. A topside breach targets the 61.8% retracement at 1.3355.

GBP/USD – Sterling posted a reversal candle off downtrend resistance last week and we’re looking for exhaustion on a deeper pullback. Initial support at 1.2380 – look for a reaction there IF reached. Resistance at the 1.25-handle with a breach above 1.2560 needed to fuel the next leg higher.

GoldGold prices are testing a critical resistance pivot at 1522/26 – a topside breach / close is needed to keep the immediate long-bias viable targeting 1558. Failure here would shift the focus back towards 1511 and 1494/97 – look for a bigger reaction there IF reached.
