USD In Control

Forex Signals Brief for May 1: USD on the Move in May

Posted Tuesday, May 1, 2018 by

Another day and another strong performance from the USD. The rally in Greenback continues to gather steam as we head into some big economic data, which includes the FOMC and US employment later in the week.

A rising USD gave us a few nice setups as we were able to ride the momentum. The FX Leaders Team grabbed wins in the EUR/USD and Gold thanks to a rising dollar. There were a couple of signals in the red which meant we finished the day two and two.

Our GBP/USD continues to look solid, as the strong USD is really putting the pound to the sword. We are now back past breakeven in what has been an epic trade.

The real action begins on Wednesday with the FOMC, but be ready just in case markets get moving early. Again the focus will be on the USD and if we can continue the breakout.

Forex Signal Watchlist

NZD/USD – The majors are all the rage at the moment so watch out for the Kiwi as it continues to decline against the USD.

GBP/USD – We might already be in a long-term signal, but given the strong downside momentum we’re seeing at the moment, it might be worth scalping out some pips here.
