Talking Points:

  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10375 (double bottom?)
  • Resistance: 10455 (channel top), 10495 (support-turned-resistance)

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index looks to be attempting to set a double bottom at 10375, the October 22 close. Confirmation of the upward reversal pattern requires a breach of resistance is at 10455, marked by the top of a falling channel that has guided the benchmark currency downward since the beginning of the year. A daily close above this barrier initially targets horizontal support-turned-resistance at 10495.

Our long-term fundamental outlook continues to call for a stronger US Dollar against its key counterparts. As such, we remain long the greenback via theMirror Trader US Dollar currency basket.
