Talking Points:

Can’t access to the Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index? Try the USD basket on Mirror Trader. **

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSISPrices are starting to rise as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern above support at 10661, marked by the bottom of a rising channel set from November and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break above initial resistance at 10718 – a horizontal pivot – targets the January high at 10756 and the channel top at 10787. Alternatively, reversing below support exposes the 38.2% Fib at 10602.
