Focus Chart of the Day: USDOLLAR

Price & Time: USD Continues to Frustrate

The FXCM US DOLLAR Index (equally weighted basket of USD versus EUR, JPY, GBP & AUD) has had several good chances to breakout over the past few weeks, but has failed at every opportunity. In our view, the longer it sits here without breaking out the greater the risk of a sharp correction. The Fed looks to be trying to stack the deck for a breakout in rates and by default USD with a heavy dose of speakers to start the week (following the markets lackluster response to the data on Friday). It will be interesting to see if the gambit works. Failure to generate traction above the 78.6% retracement of the April – May decline around 12,050 would be a big warning sign that USD is indeed in trouble. A key pivot in the event of a topside failure remains the late July low at 11,965 as weakness below there would signal that a high of some significance is in place.
