USD Mixed into Mid-July

Technical Analysis

The USD has generally been in positive mode in July, rallying against the Dollar bloc (Canadian, Australian and New Zealand Dollars), a corrective rebound versus the Great Britain Pound (GBPUSD lower), but still indecisive against the Euro and losing ground to the Japanese Yen (which has benefited from a safe haven bid).

This activity points to a mixed tone for the US currency into mid-July.

USDCAD

  • A firm rally from June leaves bias higher into mid-July, through the 2015 peak at 1.2835.
  • Above here sees risk to the psychological/ option target at 1.3000 and multi-year peak at 1.3064.
