- US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
- Support: 10661-9 (23.6% Fib ret., channel bottom), 10602 (38.2% Fib ret.)
- Resistance: 10718 (horizontal pivot), 10756 (Jan 21 high)
The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index rose as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. Prices have since failed to overcome horizontal pivot resistance at 10718, recoiling to retest support in the 10661-9 area marked by the bottom of a rising channel set from November and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break lower initially exposes the 38.2% Fib at 10602. Alternatively, a reversal above 10718 aims for the January high at 10756. We are trading the long-term trend in the US Dollar via the Mirror Trader US Dollar currency basket.
