  • US 10-year yields rangebound around 3.07%.
  • US Industrial Production expanded more than expected in April.

US Dollar backed by US yields, data

The index is up for the third session in a row today, climbing as high as the 93.60/65 area and at the same time clinching fresh multi-month tops.

Yields of the key US 10-year reference are trading just below recently recorded multi-year peaks beyond 3.07% and are in turn lending extra oxygen to the rally in the greenback.

In addition, US Industrial Production expanded more than expected 0.7% MoM during April while Manufacturing Production rose at a monthly 0.5%. Additional US data saw Building Permits at 1.352 million units and Housing Starts at 1.287 million.

As of writing the index is gaining 0.35% at 93.59 facing the next hurdle at 93.63 (2018 high May 16) followed by 94.22 (high Dec.11 2017) and then 94.27 (high Oct.5 2017). On the other hand, a breakdown of 92.82 (10-day sma) would aim for 92.45 (23.6% Fibo of 89.23-93.45) and finally 92.24 (low May 13).
