US$ higher: that was the day

Thursday’s FX trading was primarily defined by a stronger US$, helped by US data and Fed comments & in spite of Trump comments, with only the GBP£ as the real stand out against this trend. Four more trend line breakouts triggered but, overall, the week has been pretty choppy with this US$ see-saw action.

USDX daily: this is back above the key 100 level but has Ichimoku Cloud and 102 resistance ahead.

More trend line breakouts:there were four more breakout trades:

Gold 4hr: 55 pips:

U/J 4hr: 40 pips for now but watch for any continuation to test of the 113 S/R and 50% fib region; as noted in my w/e analysis:

GBP/NZD 4hr: 100 pips and note the bounce up from the key 1.77 level:

EUR/NZD 4hr: this move continued lower and has now given 110 pips

GBP/JPY 5 min: this time frame seems more useful than even the 15 min chart:
