DXY Weekly Price Chart

US Dollar (DXY) Price Chart - Weekly Timeframe

Notes: The US Dollar Index (DXY) has continued to trade within the confines of a broad descending pitchfork formation extending off the 2015 & 2017 swing highs with price registering the yearly lows at the lower parallels earlier this year. The subsequent rebound is testing confluence resistance this week at 93.89-94.20 where the 2016 low-week reversal close and the 38.2% retracement of the 2017 decline converge on the median-line.

For a complete breakdown of Michael’s trading strategy, review his Foundations of Technical Analysis series on Building a Trading Strategy

Bottom line: The broader long-bias remains at risk near-term while below this threshold. Interim support rests at 92.28 backed by bullish invalidation at 91.33 – both levels of interest for exhaustion / long-entries IF reached. A breach above this key zone targets subsequent resistance targets at the 200-week moving average at 94.80 and the 50% retracement at 96.04. With Euro accounting for nearly 60% of this index, we’ll be looking for near-term opportunities in EUR/USD as outlined in today’s EUR/USD Scalp Report.
