DJ-FXCM Dollar Index







  • Despite the dismal 2Q Euro-Zone Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report, the EUR/USD rallied into 1.3402 as there appeared to be broad dollar weakness.
  • Nevertheless, the string of lower-highs in August continues to cast a bearish outlook for the EUR/USD as the pair appears to be stuck in a descending triangle formation.
  • Even though the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long on EUR/USD, the ratio has come off of its recent highs and sits at +1.38.


  • USD/JPY also continues to carve a series of lower-highs in August; retains the bearish trend from January.
  • With Japan 2Q GDP beating market expectations, seems as though the Bank of Japan (BoJ) will retain its current course for monetary policy.
  • Long-term descending triangle formation remains in play, with the 101.00 handle holding up as key support.

USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index faces an increased risk of a near-term top as the RSI struggles to preserve the bullish momentum.
  • Will be looking for a bearish RSI break paired with a close below 10,561 (100% expansion) to favor a larger pullback.
  • Nevertheless, a near-term correction may provide a ‘buy the dip’ opportunity as the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) remains on course to halt its asset-purchase program in October.
  • Interim Resistance: 10,590 (50.0% retracement) to 10,604 (38.2% retracement)
  • Interim Support: 10,440 (78.6% retracement) to 10,450 Pivot
