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 last week that “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.” Price is nearing 9970 and a drop below would expose the 50%-61.8% retracements at 9943 and 9922. Focus this week is on identifying a secondary low. Additional technical research can be found at

Bottom Line – buy dips below 9970, stop 9856, target open
