Talking Points:

  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10389 (61.8% Fib exp.), 10364-70 (May 8 low, 76.4% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 10409 (50% Fib exp.), 10429 (38.2% Fib exp.)

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index is attempting to correct upward after hitting a seven-month low. Near-term resistance is at 10409, the 50% Fibonacci expansion, with a break back above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 10429. Support is at 10389, the 61.8% Fib. A break below that eyes the May 8 low at 10370, followed by the 76.4% Fib at 10364.

Our long-term fundamental view continues to call for a stronger US Dollar against its key counterparts. As such, we remain long the benchmark currency via theMirror Trader US Dollar currency basket.
