Key Trade Levels in Focus

US Dollar – Resistance & near-term bearish invalidation at 97.71/87. Support at 97.03 with a break below key support at 96.80 needed to fuel the next leg lower.Review my latest US Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the weekly technical trade levels.

EUR/USD - Topside resistance levels are stacked into 1.1208 in EUR/USD – risk for some exhaustion into this zone early in the month. Support at 1.1106- look for a reaction there If reached. Review my latest Euro Price Outlook for a closer look at the weekly technical trade levels.

AUD/USD Aussie opens the week just below resistance at 6924/27- immediate long-bias is at vulnerable below his threshold. Interim support at 6880- weakness below this threshold could open a larger correction early in the month. Topside breach targets unchanged. Review my latest Australian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the intraday Aussie technical trade levels.

USD/CAD – Price opens the week just below near-term slope resistance – breach / close above 1.3231 needed to validate larger breakout in price targeting 1.3335. Interim support for USD/CAD at the October low-day close at 1.3086 with critical support steady at 1.3050. Review my latest Canadian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the intraday technical trade levels.

GoldGold prices have continued to respect the October opening-range and the focus remains on a breakout of the near-term price consolidation for guidance. Key resistance 1519/22 with initial support at 1495 and 1482- look for a bigger reaction there IF reached. Review my latest Gold Price Outlook for a closer look intraday technical trade levels.
