DXY for the past 8 weeks traded in a fairly straight line from 103.00’s to 99.00’s As the July lows achieved 99.00’s , DXY not only traded to high 102.00’s but supports were created at 100.38, 100.81, 101.07 and 101.20. This week, DXY traded freely at 128 pips inside open ranges from 101.00’s to overbought 102.00’s.
DXY next week trades the same 101.00 to overbought upper 102.00 ranges. At current 102.74, DXY lacks ability to trade and sustain high 102.00’s and low 103.00’s. DXY next week must correct lower and break 102.17 and 102.08 to trade low 101.00’s.
The DXY drop from 104.00 and upper 103.00’s since last May revealed the same scenario as the current rise from 99.00’s. With every rise and fall to DXY, a support or resistance point materializes above or below the price in order to strangle DXY inside permanent 100 and 200 pip ranges. Weeks at 200 open ranges trades far better and wider parameters than 100 pip weeks.
DXY as USD market leader is solely responsible for the questions to how high, low or how far will markets range. DXY’s 128 pips this week is matched by EUR/USD at 128, GBP/USD 193, AUD/USD 213, NZD/USD 161 pips, SPX at 88 and XAU/USD at 42.
DXY excess to overbought allowed USD/JPY and JPY cross pairs to trade far higher degrees of overbought at 300 and 400 pip ranges and to include 400 pips to EUR/AUD, GBP/AUD and GBP/NZD. Each trade a X 2 price event particularly USD/JPY and JPY cross pairs.
EUR/USD lacks the advantage of market leader as 1/2 EUR/USD pips is matched by trading 1/2 USD/EUR. EUR/USD follows DXY and USD currencies as both are responsible for EUR/USD movements.
Trades offered this week to EUR/AUD, GBP/AUD, EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD achieved targets for + 1000 pips and targets completed Monday.
DXY overbought remains on a short only strategy to target the 99.00 break.
EUR/USD higher next week must break 1.0957 and 1.0968 to target 1.1055. The break above 1.0968 places EUR/USD’s range from 1.0968 to 1.1128. EUR/USD trades is oversold due to a tiny degree and enough to maintain a long only strategy.
