The Forex Zone – US Dollar weakens post Fed rate cut


The US Dollar sold off across the board from Wednesday after the Federal reserve cut interest rates, leaving the immediate risks for the greenback lower into today’s US Employment report.

The Forex Zone highlights day trade ideas for the major Forex rates; EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDCAD, AUDUSD, NZDUSD and USDJPY.

EURUSD: Bull theme intact

A Thursday dip but we see upside forces from Wednesday’s strong advance through 1.1123 and 1.1163 resistances to build on the Monday-Tuesday rebound from 1.1071 (from above 1.1063 support), to keep risks higher for Friday.

For Today:

  • We see an upside bias for 1.1176, 1.1183 and 1.1191; break here aims for 1.1191 1.1229, maybe 1.1250.
  • But below 1.1130 opens risk down to 1.1102/00 and 1.1071/63.
