Forex: US Dollar Technical Analysis – Still Looking for Direction

Forex: US Dollar Technical Analysis – Still Looking for Direction

Talking Points:

  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10554 (trend line from Sep’12), 10520 (Feb 17 low)
  • Resistance: 10614 (23.6% Fib exp.), 10673 (38.2% Fib exp.)

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index continues to consolidate above support at a rising trend line set from September 2012. A break above resistance at 10614, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, initially exposes the 38.2% level at 10673. Trend line support is now at 10554, with a reversal below that eyeing the February 17 low at 10520.

Our long-term view continues to favor broad-based US Dollar strength in the months ahead. Furthermore, absent a break defined break below the trend line on a daily closing basis, the medium-term uptrend remains intact. As such, we remain long the greenback via the Mirror Trader US Dollar currency basket. **
