USD Set To Maintain Some Upside Bias

Central bank expectations will be the main focus in the week ahead, with new Fed Chair Powell testifying on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. In our opinion the dollar may maintain some upside bias in the near term as Powell’s speech before the House Financial Services Committee is unlikely to strike a dovish tone.

This is how our forex trading strategies look like:

EUR/USDTrading strategy: ShortOpen: 1.2300Target: 1.2180Stop-loss: 1.2360Recommended size: 2.73 mini lots per $10,000 in your accountShort analysis: The EUR/USD remains capped by the 30-dma, which is currently at 1.2346. This should keep the overall bias on the downside. 14-day momentum remains negative, reinforcing the overall bearish market structure. We remain short at 1.2300 for eventual losses to 1.2180. A daily close above 30-dma will defer.Previous position: Long opened at 1.2220, profit taken at 1.2380, earned: 160 pips, $320 per $10,000 in your account

GBP/USDTrading strategy: Await signalOpen: -Target: -Stop-loss: -Recommended size: -Short analysis: Last week’s action delivered a bull close and set up a stronger bullish impulse early Monday. Daily kijun initial resistance is at 1.4055 and 61.8% Fibo off 1.4279-1.3558 drop. Break of the Kijun opens up recent 1.4145 high. Slow stochs are rising steeply, but the upward move was not continued later on Monday. We think current signals are not strong enough to open a new position
