Intraday Market Analysis – USD Struggles For Support

Intraday Market Analysis – USD Struggles To Bounce

EURUSD attempts a bullish breakout

EURUSD Chart

The US dollar retreated after retail sales fell below 1% in September. The euro’s rally above 1.1570 has led some short interests to close their positions.

The pair is testing the key resistance at 1.1640, which coincides with the 20-day moving average and the first resistance on the daily chart. A bullish breakout could pave the way for recovery to 1.1750.

However, buyers could be hesitant to commit after an overbought RSI caused profit-taking. In case of a pullback, 1.1540 is fresh support to keep the current rebound relevant.

NZDUSD tests key resistance

NZDUSD Chart

The New Zealand dollar rallies as Q3 inflation beats estimates.

After a few days of sideways action, the indecision ended with a break above 0.7020, the origin of the last sell-off. In turn, this set the kiwi on a bullish course.

Sellers would scramble to get out after their failed attempts to push lower. An overbought RSI may cause a temporary pullback.

0.7040 is the immediate support, then 0.6980 is the second line of defense in case of a deeper correction. A close above 0.7110 would lift the pair towards the previous peak at 0.7170.

GER 40 heads towards major hurdle

GER 40 Chart

The Dax 40 bounces higher as the market bets on a prolonged low-interest environment.

The major floor at 14800 has seen strong buying interest as traders bought the dip. A bullish close above 15200 has put the short side under pressure. Then a rally above the 30-day moving average indicates further commitment from the buy-side.

The momentum could slow down momentarily as the RSI shows an overbought situation. 15300 would be the first support. A break above the daily resistance at 15700 may resume the uptrend.
