Commentary: USD continues to struggle . PE
US Dollar (.DXY) Index at 89.283 to test support on daily lines 88.5-88.8 this week. On the daily candle the Northside for .DXY near term looks capped at 89.5.
EUR (Euro) at 1.2401 seeking 1st resistance at 1.24 now.

EUR could again test at 1.25 on the weekly lines if it stays above 1.24.
USD/JPY at 108.91 continues to stay below 109, impacted by the Bank of Japan boss’ comment that inflation is nearing targets increasing the likelihood for raising of rates in near future. There is support near 108.5-108.75 on the weekly lines, which should hold for now.
EUR/JPY at 134.99 to target 134.5 if USD/JPY comes down to 108.5 and EUR stays around 1.24. In case there is some weakening in EUR to 1.235, EUR/JPY may test support at 134 on the daily candle, then move up.
Sterling (GBP) at 1.4117 is trading below resistance at 1.42 on the 3-Day candle. A clear break there, then 1.44 is next this week.
