US dollar: outlook for August 28 - September 1

US dollar: outlook for August 28 - September 1

2019-11-11 • Updated

During the past week, the US dollar index (DXY) continued consolidation.

Recent releases weren’t very optimistic: manufacturing PMI and home sales both declined. Donald Trump threatened to shut down the US government over funding for a border wallon Wednesday. The market is concerned that the Congress won’t easily raise the debt ceiling and deliver on tax reform.

There will be a lot of economic updates in the coming days: the US will release consumer confidence on Tuesday, ADP employment report and preliminary GDP for the second quarter on Wednesday, core PCE price index and personal spending on Thursday and NFP together with ISM manufacturing PMI on Friday. All in all, we’ll get a pretty much new information about America’s economic health. The quality of these statistics will be very important for further direction of the greenback. Another important driver of the market will be the speech of the Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen at Jackson Hole on Friday evening (August 25).

The greenback remains within the overall downtrend. A close above 93.50 is needed for the DXY to start reversing up. Next resistance levels will be at 94.00 and 94.50. A break below 93.00 will lead to 92.50 and 92.00.
