The USDollar has continued to push up over the last couple of weeks. However, we have hit into monthly resistance, and we may see a deeper pullback because of it. That being said, due to us still being bullish we should continue to buy the dollar until structure changes.
When looking at the macro-economic outlook, until we see a shift in the FED’s stance, we are likely to continue to see the dollar push up. Quantitative tightening is a driver in the dollar continuing its push up, as it is a way to reduce the supply of the currency.
Right now, we are seeing interest rate hikes across the world as a combat against the rising inflation. We are likely to see this continue into the near future, as there is no signs of this slowing down just yet. The uncertain times has caused some impulsive moves in the market, which has caused some tricky periods for certain traders who rely on seeing ‘sequences’ in the market. However, our advanced group has continued to catch some amazing trades despite tricky conditions.
