Looming Trade Threat Weigh Down on US Dollar

June 25, 2018 1:22PM CDT

The US Dollar is down for the third consecutive session following weakness in global equity markets as well as the ongoing trade threat. Global equity markets were all down in the overnight with the Trump administration formulating a plan to bar Chinese companies from investing in U.S. technology firms as well as additional threats of US tariffs on European cars. The path of least resistance remains down as outflows in the US dollar may continue with momentum studies trending lower. Near-term support is seen at 93.97 with the next downside target at 93.81. Resistance is seen at 94.41 and 94.71.
