Focus Chart of the Day: USDOLLAR

Price & Time: Looking To The Fed For Direction

The FX markets have clearly been confused over the past few weeks on where USD is headed in a medium-term sense. The price action in the FXCM US Dollar Index (equally weighted basket of USD versus EUR, JPY, GBP & AUD) has reflected this with sharp moves recently in both directions. Hopefully today’s Fed meeting will break the directional deadlock and shed some light on where USD is headed. The double failure recently near the 78.6% retracement of the April – May decline puts the index in a negative position heading into today, but we would need to see a close under last week’s low and probably the 61.8% retracement of the May – June advance at 11,790 to get more excited about a material dollar decline. The 50-day moving average near 11,900 looks to be a near-term upside pivot for USDOLLAR.
