US Dollar Approaching August Lows – Gold Price Compression to Give Way

The US Dollar opens the week just above multi-month lows after plummeting more than 1.2% last week. While the broader risk remains lower, the immediate threat is for some exhaustion here and we’re on the lookout for a re-set on numerous majors this week. Gold remains in consolidation with an imminent breakout to offer guidance. In this webinar we review updated technical setups on DXY, EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CAD, NZD/USD, AUD/USD, Gold(XAU/USD), Crude Oil (WTI), SPX (S&P 500) and USD/CHF.

Key Trade Levels in Focus

US Dollar – Initial resistance at 97.60 with near-term bearish invalidation now lowered to 97.87.

USD/CAD – Tracking support in USD/CAD at 1.3094-1.3106 early in the week. Initial resistance and near-term bearish invalidation at 1.3156- look for a reaction there IF reached.
