Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • US Dollar Chart Setup Warns a Correction Lower is May Be Ahead

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices may be on the verge of a correction lower as negative RSI divergence points to ebbing bullish momentum. Near-term support is at 10913, marked by a rising trend line set from set from late August, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 10869. Alternatively, a turn above the 14.6% Fib expansion at 10957 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% threshold at 11008.
