Daily Forex Market Commentary
The dollar rallied further on Monday against the New Zealand after the RBNZ unexpectedly intervened to weaken its red-hot currency and also against the franc. But it went sideways versus the other the European currencies and the yen, as traders were seeking new direction. They should seek more of that today.
One day after falling to a two-month low, euro/dollar marked time quietly in an inside range on Monday. Following a brief recovery it should resume its decline.
Immediate support is at 1.3322. Below this Fibonacci retracement level there is support at 1.3275.
Initial resistance is now seen at 1.3505. Next level is 1.3450. Only a break above the important level at 1.3522 would signal a retest of the 1.3553 area. A more aggressive upmove would attack 1.3610, but this is unlikely. Distant resistance is at 1.3683.
Oscillators are mixed.

After sliding to a two-month low on Friday, sterling/dollar traded sideways in a tight range and within the previous boundaries, just like the euro/dollar. The medium term outlook is still slightly bearish, but only a close below 1.9650 would confirm this view. It cut losses late in the day and should continue its recovery first but then resume its decline.
If 1.9650 breaks on a closing basis, look for further support at 1.9623. A close below this level would signal a further slide to 1.9545.
Immediate resistance is at 1.9734. If 1.9770 breaks, then look for a further rebound to 1.9870.
