Focus Chart of the Day: FXCM US DOLLAR INDEX

Price & Time: USD Searching For Trend

The FXCM US Dollar Index remains one of the key charts to monitor at the moment. The choppiness over the past few weeks highlights well the utter lack of conviction in USD trades since the FOMC meeting last month. Perhaps that was partly the intention? The index has also responded very well at key technical levels during this time as the trendline connecting the December and February lows has been tested twice and the 78.6% retracement of the mid-March decline once. A clear break of one of these levels looks needed to break the impasse and set off a more meaningful directional move. The trendline currently sits at 11,975 while the retracement remains fixed at 12,095. Today/tomorrow looks important from a short-term cyclical standpoint.
