US Dollar Index (DXY) on the verge of a breakdown
The US Dollar Index (DXY) is under pressure again today with the Euro and Sterling rallying. This has trend support from June in focus, and if momentum at this time is any indication support may not hold. A breakdown is seen as leading a larger decline to the September low at 9786, followed by the trend-line rising up off the February 2018 low and 200-day MA (both in near confluence).

EURUSD trying to break out of the same old pattern
The Euro is helping push the DXY over the edge, and is currently on the verge of breaking its sequence of stalling at trend resistance. The trend-line from late June held price in check yesterday, but as of now that is in the rear-view mirror. The area around 11085 is resistance, then beyond there the February 2018 trend-line.

GBPUSD rally has price pressing on big resistance
GBPUSD is putting in a monster day-and-a-half so far, with it now testing the trend-line from April 2018 and very nearly the 200-day MA. This could make for an interesting spot as confluent trend resistance comes into play. It’s a spot to look for Cable to stall, but that doesn’t, with headline risk and momentum in play, necessarily make it a great spot to be short.
