Talking Points:

  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10375 (double bottom)
  • Resistance: 10469 (channel top), 10495 (support-turned-resistance)

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index may be in the process of setting a double bottom at 10375, the October 22 close. Initial confirmation requires a breach of resistance is at 10469, marked by the top of a falling channel that has guided the greenback lower since the beginning of the year. A daily close above this barrier initially targets horizontal support-turned-resistance at 10495.

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.
