US Dollar Technical Analysis: Retesting Former Resistance

US Dollar Technical Analysis: Retesting Former Resistance

Talking Points:

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Indexcorrected lower after last week’s breakout seemingly marking the resumption of the longer-term uptrend. Near-term resistance is in the 11102-43 area marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion and the October 3 high, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 11216. Alternatively, a reversal back below channel top channel top resistance-turned-support at 10996 opens the door for a challenge of the 10918-59 area (23.6% Fib retracement, October 15 low).

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.
