DJ-FXCM Dollar Index






USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Downside remains favorable for Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index as it continues to come off trendline resistance.
  • The dip below 10,406 (1.618% Fibonacci expansion from the August decline) opens the door for a move back towards 10,375 as it appears to be carving a lower-high in July.
  • Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) Minutes in focus ahead of the Humphrey-Hawkins Testimony scheduled for next week.
  • May get more of the same from the FOMC as Chair Janet Yellen continues to highlight subdued wages.


  • Remains capped by 1.0690-1.0700 (23.6% Fib retracement), while 1.0610-20 (78.6% Fib expansion) holds up as near-term support.
  • A look at the broader channel favors a more meaningful rebound as it straddles trendline support.
  • Canada Employment report is expected to show another 20.0K rise in job growth; strong pickup may prompt a more material shift in the Bank of Canada (BoC) policy as Governor Stephen Poloz scales back willingness to lower the benchmark interest rate further.


  • Making another move at 89.50 pivot, but need a closing price above the region to favor a further advance.
  • Would also like to see a bullish break in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) for confirmation/conviction.
  • Will watch the April high (89.91), but the next key topside objective comes in around 90.00 (50.0% Fib expansion)
