Focus Chart of the Day: FXCM US DOLLAR INDEX

Price & Time: Calm Before the Storm?

The FXCM US Dollar Index (equally weighted basket of USD versus EUR, JPY, GBP & AUD) failed again last week near the 78.6% retracement of the April – May decline in the 12,050 area. There is some vulnerability in the index heading into the FOMC decision this afternoon after yesterday’s break of a minor trendline. However, we would need to see last week’s low around 11,975 give way to trigger a double top on the daily and prime the market for a more serious correction. Traction over 12,050 would alleviate our budding concerns of a correction and set the stage for a re-test of the April high.
