USDOLLAR at Interim Resistance
60 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index (Ticker: USDOLLAR) decline from the December high is in 3 waves and the first leg of a larger impulse appears to be unfolding to begin the year. I wrote yesterday that “the first leg of the rally may terminate tomorrow with NFP. Keep a close eye on the 10020 figure (former pivot and underside of former trendline).” The USDOLLAR traded to 10030 before turning back today. The combination of the trendline and 5 wave rally from 9856 give scope to a turn lower, albeit in a correction. 9970 is initial support.
Bottom Line – buy dips below 9970, stop 9856, target open
