Here’s the outlook for the currency indices…

This week, look for …
Neutral: BXY
Shorts: DXY


Same as last week, looks bullish in the long-term, will need to watch for buy set ups from support. I think a 111 test is on the cards.

Monthly – Looks like it’ll want to head higher to the TL, pebble on a pond
Weekly – Can see the euro holding the w200 and moving higher
Daily – Might be a key reversal week? I think the PA looks like more downside yet


Short term sell. Looking at long set ups in the medium term. See the 100s trend-line coming into play as a target

Monthly – Looking for DXY to hit 100 – prior resistance and TL touch (could take months/years)
Weekly – Similar pattern – forming a head and shoulders at around 100
Daily – The run up looks a little flat, wonder if we are due a bigger pullback?
4h – Multiple tests of a TL, I can see this TL breaking to the downside. Catching to the 4h500.


Right now expecting Yen to move higher. Longer term lower (much lower – 84s), look for shorts in to the 89s
Monthly – Looks bearish. Retesting the m50 but rallies have been limited and price is struggling to move higher
Weekly – Weekly looks bearish, more downside on the cards retested the TL goodbye
Daily – Looks like a move higher to the 89s is possible, look for shorts op there


Fairly neutral for now, keep an eye on PA around the 127s

Monthly – Prior TL that will probably get tested at some point in 2019-2020, for now continuation down, need to see if we close below 127s can see a retest of 121s (post Brexit vote lows).
Weekly – Looking to see how the week closes, could see more downside to the Brexit lows (121s)
Daily – Key week for GBP. Closes below 127 spell doom and gloom, SFPs or DST set ups long will look good for further upside.


Continuation of trend up

Monthly – Hand-railing the m50 would expect it to clear and head to 82 – 84s
Weekly – Two spinning tops on the TL, indicates heading higher
Daily – Maybe more downside from here to the 74.5 level, if so would be a confident buy, otherwise expect continuation


Short term long, up to the d200, to get short for the longer term

Monthly – Looks like it could set up a nice divergence long, volatility is low so would be a nervy long. Expect more downside to the 63s
Weekly – Bouncing a bit, any re-test of the TL would be a short
Daily – I like the long play up to the 74s for a big short!
