USD Weekly Price Chart (DXY)

US Dollar Weekly Price Chart (DXY)

Notes: In last month’s US Dollar Weekly Technical Perspective, we highlighted topside resistance targets at the 200-day moving average, now around ~95.10. The index has been unable to close above this threshold with price failing the last four weekly attempts. The focus is on this key region heading into the start of the week/month/quarter, with the dollar rally at risk while below.

Interim support rests at 93.89-94.20 where the median-line of the broader descending pitchfork formation converges on the 38.2% retracement and the 2016 low-week reversal-close. A break there would shift the focus towards the median-line of ascending formation around ~93 with key support at the confluence of the 52-week moving average and the yearly open at 92.28. Topside resistance targets are unchanged in the event of a breach with such a scenario targeting 50% retracement at 96.04 backed by the slope confluence just higher around 97.10.

For a complete breakdown of Michael’s trading strategy, review his Foundations of Technical Analysis series on Building a Trading Strategy

Bottom line: Look for dollar price exhaustion on another attempt at the highs with a break below 93.89 needed to validate a larger correction. Watch the weekly momentum profile as RSI targets highs not seen since the 2016/2017 peak in price.
