US Dollar Index Price Chart – DXY Weekly

DXY Chart

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; US Dollar Index on Tradingview

Notes: In out September US Dollar Weekly Price Outlook we noted that DXY was testing long-term slope support and to be on the lookout, “for downside exhaustion ahead of 92.28 IF price is heading higher with a close above 94.65 needed to fuel a larger recovery.” The rally pressed higher into the close of September with XAU/USD briefly registering a high at 94.74 before reversing sharply.

The decline is now once again testing a critical support zone at the 2011 trendline / 2018 yearly open at 92.28 with the 2016 swing low just beyond at 91.92 – looking for a major infection off this region in the days ahead. A break / weekly close below would be needed to suggest a larger trend reversal is underway with such a scenario eyeing initial support objective at the 2017 low at 91.01. Weekly resistance stands at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement off the 2018 advance / 2016 low-week close at 93.88 with a breach above the March lows at 94.65 needed to invalidate the broader March downtrend.

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

Bottom line: The US Dollar sell-off is testing a critical support zone and mutli-year uptrend support – looking for a reaction down here. From a trading standpoint, a good region to reduce short exposure / lower protective stop. Look for topside exhaustion ahead of 93.92 on recoveries IF price is heading lower with a close below 91.92 needed to fuel the next leg lower in price.
