US Dollar Slammed by CPI– Transitory Inflation Argument Gains– USD Majors on the Move
In Monday’s Weekly Strategy Webinar we noted that our basic premise into the start of the week was to look for possible US Dollar exhaustion as DXY approached resistance near the July highs. An in-line US CPI print today offered the catalyst to the USD exhaustion play with the greenback poised to mark an outside-day reversal off the high. Similarly, numerous USD Majors are responding to key technical thresholds on this heels of today’s inflation read and the stage is set heading into the close of the week. We’re still waiting on the dust to settle in the Gold, Silver and Oil after the recent plunge into key technical support zones. In this webinar we take an in-depth look at the technical trade levels for the for the US Dollar Index,USD/CAD, US10Y,EUR/USD, USD/JPY, AUD/USD, Gold, Silver, Bitcoin (BTC/USD) and Crude Oil.
