Focus Chart of the Day: USDOLLAR

Price & Time: Patterns Patterns Everywhere

There has been more troubling price action in the FXCM US Dollar Index over the past few days as the break below 11,915 on Friday technically triggered a head & shoulders topping pattern. A daily settlement below 11,885 would also trigger a multi-week double top. Both patterns suggest this current correction has more room to run. The less ominous interpretation of recent events is that the index is just in the midst of a widening range, but the persistency in the decline over the past couple of weeks is making this look less and less likely. As far as the index components go, USD/JPY could hold the cards as to whether we see these patterns follow through as the rate sits atop the neckline of a pretty clear head & shoulders pattern at 118.40 itself.
