USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Fed’s updated projects for growth, inflation and interest rate will be key focus.
  • With USDOLLAR threatening trendline resistance, we need a bullish break in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) to favor topside targets.
  • At risk for lower-low on dovish statement from Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC).
GBP/USD:

  • Despite unanimous vote, BoE continues to show greater willingness to normalize monetary policy sooner rather than later
  • Seems as BoE Favors Stronger British Pound as it helps to achieve price stability.
  • Favor ‘buying dips’ as we look for a higher-low.
NZD/USD

  • Remains capped by 0.8690-0.8700 (78.6% retracement), but breaks out of bearish RSI momentum
  • Former trendline resistance on RSI appears to be offering support
  • A pickup in New Zealand 1Q GDP (1.1%) could heighten rate hike expectations for the Reserve Bank of New Zealand’s (RBNZ) July 23 meeting.
