Talking Points

  • USDOLLAR holding below important Fibonacci level
  • Trendline connecting December/February lows remains critical

The FXCM US Dollar Index (USDOLLAR) failed earlier this week just below the 78.6% retracement of March range at 12,095. This level looks to be an important pivot for the Buck in the near-term and while the index sits below this level there is still plenty of scope for a more meaningful correction against the primary trend in USD – perhaps even a violent one should trendline support around 11, 945 give way. Traction above 12,095, on the other hand, would be a strong technical signal that the dollar is embarking on another important leg higher and is set to resume the broader uptrend. This morning’s US employment data should give some clarity on which course the dollar is headed. We like buying dollars on a weekly settlement over 12,095 and selling them on close sub 11,945.
