- Support: 10404-19 , 10375, 10323
- Resistance:10474-95, 10531, 10589
The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index is attempting to launch a recovery after testing multi-year rising trend support set from July 2011. This barrier (now at 10419) is reinforced by a falling channel bottom at 10404. Resistance continues to stand in the 10474-95 area, with a break above that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a challenge of the May 28 high at 10531. Alternatively, a turn below support would hint a major reversal is in progress and initially expose double bottom support at 10375, followed by the June 2012 high at 10323.
