Fear runs rampant across financial markets as the US Dollar Index $DXY prints fresh one-month lows.
I thought the USD was a safe haven.
Perhaps it is. But it appears the gig is up for King Dollar after being the only game in town for almost a year.
So what now, buy stocks?
Sounds good to me.
And I think we can start buying other global currencies too…
Check out the EUR/USD pair:
The euro is swinging back toward our risk level of 1.08 after failing to hold its breakout earlier this year.
It’s pretty straightforward. If and when it reclaims our breakout level, we’re long targeting 1.1450.
Remember, last month, the 1.08 level was our line in the sand. Below there, a USD rally had potential.
On the flip side, if the euro trades above that level, dollar bulls will have a tough time and risk assets will likely enjoy a significant tailwind.
Thanks for reading.
