Key Trade Levels in Focus

US Dollar – The index was rejected at Fibonacci resistance last week at 98.40- Risk is lower while below Friday’s high with a break below slope support targeting the 98-handle. A close below the figure is needed to validate a larger reversal targeting 97.66/71. Review my latest US Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the longer-term DXY technical trade levels.

EUR/USD Euro rebounded off a critical support barrier last week at 1.0982/94 – we’re looking for a breach above downslope resistance with a close above 1.1053 needed to validate a reversal. Review my latest Euro Price Outlook for a closer look at the EUR/USD technical trade levels.

USD/CAD Price remains in a consolidation pattern and we’re looking for the breakout. Key resistance stands at 1.3335/55 – the long-bias is at risk into this threshold. Ultimately, a break below near-term support at 1.3252/60 is needed to validate a reversal targeting 1.3219.Review my latest Canadian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the USD/CAD intraday technical trade levels.
