Forex Analysis: US Dollar, Benchmark Assets Stall in Quiet Holiday Trade

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar and benchmark assets tracking commodities and equities have stalled near familiar technical levels in quiet trade forced by the US Thanksgiving holiday.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices are consolidating above support at the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement (9993), a barrier reinforced by a rising trend line set from the October 17 low (10009). Initial resistance is at 10071, the November 16 high, with a push above that targeting the 38.2% Fib expansion at 10123. Alternatively, a drop below 9993 exposes the 38.2% Fib at 9945.
