Key Quotes

“As indicated yesterday, the recent USD strength appears to have scope to extend higher but any up-move is expected to face stiff resistance at 114.90. USD touched a high of 114.95 and plummeted from there to hit an overnight low of 113.83. The wild swing is viewed as part of a broader consolidation phase and further choppy trading seems likely”.

USD hit a high of 114.95 yesterday but eased off quickly. Despite the sharp pull-back, the positive undertone is still intact and another leg higher to test the major 115.35/40 resistance cannot be ruled out just yet (even though the odds for such a move have diminished). On the downside, solid support can be expected at 113.20 and only a break of this level would indicate the rebound from last week’s 111.55/60 low has found a temporary top”.
