Focus Chart of the Day: FXCM US Dollar Index

Price & Time: Quarter-end Driving USD Or Something More?

The last few days of the quarter are always interesting (or are supposed to be) in the FX markets especially when there has been a strong trend over the preceding three months. The end of Q12015 is so far living up to the hype as there has been a decent run into USD over the last 24 hours or so. The real test for the Buck will probably come after the 4pm BST WMR and whether it can hold onto these gains and continue to take out resistance levels. The 78.6% retracement of the month-to-date range near 12,100 in the FXCM US Dollar Index looks like an important pivot with traction above this level needed to confirm that that the broader trend is indeed trying to re-assert itself. A failure there followed by weakness under 11,980 would keep the door open to a further possible correction in the dollar.
