Talking Points:

  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10554 (50% Fib ret.), 10473 (61.8% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 10581 (38.2% Fib exp.), 10660 (23.6% Fib ret.)

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index is testing support at 10527, the 50% Fibonacci expansion. A break below this barrier on a daily closing basis exposes the 61.8% level at 10473. Alternatively, a reversal back above the 38.2% Fib at 10581 sees the first layer of significant resistance at 10648, the 23.6% expansion.

The greenback produced its first string of back-to-back weekly declines since mid-October. Looking through near-term volatility however, we maintain a broadly supportive long-term outlook. Furthermore, the fundamental backdrop hints a reversal may be ahead. We remain long the US Dollar via the Mirror Trader US Dollar currency basket. **
