Morning Preview: The USD Keeps Making its Move
Rowan Crosby • 1 min read
As we spoke about extensively throughout yesterday's market coverage, the USD keeps on leading the pack. It’s continuing to grind higher and as such putting some of the major currencies under pressure.
The EUR was notably weaker and the USD/JPY was stronger which is a trade we spoke about yesterday.

Trade Ideas for Wednesday
My main focus for this morning will be to see if the USD can continue to retrace. It weakened going into the end of trade and if that continues that might help us.
I’m watching the AUD/USD and NZD/USD to see if both push higher, for a potential short at overhead resistance. Similarly, the USD/JPY offers a good buying opportunity at 112.00.
