The US Dollar plummeted more than 2.5% off the yearly/monthly high before rebounding and we’re on the lookout for exhaustion on this recovery in the days ahead. These are the updated targets and invalidation levels that matter on the DXY price charts. Review my latest Weekly Strategy Webinar for an in-depth breakdown of this Sterling price setup and more.

US Dollar Index Price Chart - DXY Weekly - USD Trade Outlook - Technical Forecast

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; DXY on Tradingview

Technical Outlook: In my latest USD Dollar Weekly Price Outlook we noted that DXY had, “turned from BIG resistance this month with the decline now testing multi-year slope support…. look for exhaustion on a recovery while below the high-week close with a break lower likely to fuel accelerated losses in the greenback.” Price broke below the 2018 trendline last week with the recent recovery now eyeing resistance at former trend support.

Initial resistance stands at 97.71/87 – a zone of interest for possible exhaustion. Broader bearish invalidation now lowered to the 38.2% retracement at 98.11. A break below last week’s low keeps the focus on the 97-handle and more significant support at the 61.8% retracement at 96.80- look for a bigger reaction there If reached.

Notes: A closer look at US Dollar price action shows DXY trading within the confines of a near-term descending pitchfork formation extending off the monthly highs with the index rebounding off confluence support at the lower parallels early in the week. Look for exhaustion heading into the upper parallels with a break below 97.21 needed to fuel the next leg lower in price.

Bottom line: The dollar is rebounding off near-term downtrend support and we’re on the lookout for exhaustion just higher. From at trading standpoint the risk remains weighted to the downside while within this formation– look for short-entries / fade strength on a test of the upper parallel with a break below the weekly opening-range lows needed to keep the immediate short-bias viable. A close above 98.11 would ultimately be needed to shift the broader focus back to the topside.
