Dollar Weakness Rising Across The Board Amid FOMC Rate Cut
This last week had some historical changes, as Powell and the Federal Open market Committee (FOMC) decided on a 25 basis point decrease in the federal funds rate this past Wednesday. We saw massive sell of the US Dollars but was somewhat halted on Friday when positive non farm payrolls came out. Overall we still have dollar weakness across the board, but we are proceeding with caution as all other macro indicators remain positive for the dollar.
Analysis: This shows the weakness in the dollar as the pair broke out of its downtrend, which was there all of the previous weeks. However, the last two days of this week the price was stuck in a sideways range. As such, we will keep an open bias moving into the new week.
Manipulation Points: Upper – 1.1176 Lower – 1.1125 & 1.1073
Analysis: Similar to most dollar-based pairs, Thursday and Friday both moved sideways and nullified any long bias you might have on the pair due to the rate cut.
We would be looking to trade levels on both sides of the price.
Manipulation Points: Upper – 0.6929 Lower – 0.6880 & 0.6810
Analysis: We had two sideways days on Thursday and Friday. So we would be having an open bias as well on this pair. Recognizing the existing dollar weakness, we are leaning more to levels in the long direction.
Manipulation Points: Upper – 1.2925 & 1.3008 Lower – 1.2849 & 1.2808
Analysis: Here we had price continue the sell-off in the dollar on Thursday, creating a valid 1st push to the downside. While the price made a short correction on Friday, it still didn’t invalidate the bias.
So, we are trading for the second push to the downside.
Manipulation Point: Upper – 108.31
Analysis: We made two sideways price action on this pair on Thursday and Friday. So despite the dollar induced bullish move, we are trading manipulation points to both sides of the price.
Manipulation Point: Upper – 0.6454 Lower – 0.6394 & 0.6368 & 0.6336
Manipulation Point: Upper – 140.63 & 141.33 Lower – 139.53 & 139.07 & 138.70
Analysis: Another range-bound market. This pair has stayed within this range for over two weeks now. We still hoping to catch a good long or short from the lower or upper bound.
Manipulation Points: Upper – 0.8693 Lower – 0.8581
