Talking Points:

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index continues to push higher as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern at support set from October 2013. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 10456 has exposed a horizontal pivot at 10481. Pushing further beyond that targets the 38.2% level at 10513. Alternatively, reversal back below 10456 opens the door for a challenge of a rising trend line set from the July 1 low at 10439.

Our long-term US Dollar outlook calls for a broadly stronger US Dollar against its major currency counterparts. With that in mind, we are holding long via theMirror Trader US Dollar currency basket.
