Key Trade Levels in Focus

US Dollar – The index is approaching the monthly opening-range highs – look for resistance ahead of 98.39/45 early in the week. Initial support 98.15/13 with bullish invalidation raised to slope support around the 98-handle. A topside breach of the monthly highs would shift the focus towards the 61.8% retracement at 98.69. Review my latest US Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the DXY technical trade levels.

EUR/USD Euro opens he week just above near-term support at 1.1012/15 - looking for an exhaustion low while above critical support at 1.0982/94. Slope resistance stands near ~1.1030s backed by 1.1048- ultimately a breach above pitchfork resistance is needed to validate a larger reversal in price. Weakness beyond 1.0987 would risk substantial losses for euro with such a scenario targeting initial support objectives at the yearly low-day close at 1.0932. Review my latest Euro Price Outlook for a closer look at the EUR/USD technical trade levels.

GBP/USD – Sterling continues to contract into a multi-week range with GBP/USD holding just above support at 1.2818/37 into the start of the week. IF price is indeed heading lower, look for resistance head of 1.2929 with key resistance / bearish invalidation at 1.2990. A downside break still must contend with the objective yearly open at 1.2754- look for a larger reaction there IF reached. Review my latest British Pound Price Outlook for a look at the longer-term weekly technical levels.

USD/CAD –Risk for topside exhaustion heading into the high-day close / 61.8% retracement at 1.3335/55. Initial support 1.3253 with a break below the monthly ascending channel needed to validate a turn in price. Review my latest Canadian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the USD/CAD intraday technical trade levels.

GoldGold continues to test BIG support here at 1451 – a pivot below this region would represent considerable technical damage to bullion with such a scenario targeting 1433. Initial resistance stands at 1461 with near-term bearish invalidation at 1479. Looking for some exhaustion down here this week. Review my latest Gold Price Outlook for a closer look intraday technical trade levels.
