Talking Points:

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index declined as expected after putting in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern, issuing the largest daily drop in a year. Near-term support is at 10845, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposingthe 10753-56 area marked by the January 2014 and the 50% level. Alternatively, a reversal above support-turned-resistance at 10984 opens the door for a challenge of October 15 high at 11076.

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.
