The USD looked like it was headed off a cliff after the FOMC came out on Wednesday with an increasingly dovish tone towards their monetary policy.

However, the day after, price has rebounded strongly and it appears that the latest FED update has been all but forgotten.

The USD rallied and is basically back to where it came from. At the same time stocks jumped strongly, with the S&P 500 closing 1% higher.

The prior day, we saw stocks slip slightly on the news. There were some positive headlines from Apple that helped gets stocks moving,

 

The USD Outlook

The DXY fell through the key support level at 96.00 yesterday but has done a backflip to close just under 96.50.

95.00 is the major support below, along with 96.00 while 96.50 will now be key resistance.

There is still some data to come to close out the week in the US including home sales and PMI data.
