US Dollar Technical Analysis: Near-Term Pullback Ahead?

US Dollar Technical Analysis: Near-Term Pullback Ahead?

Talking Points:

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Indexappears to be on track to resume its longer-term rising trend after completing a Flag continuation pattern last week. A daily close above the 11102-43 area marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion and the October 3 high exposes the 38.2% level at 11216. The appearance of a Shooting Star candle warns a near-term pullback may be in the cards however. A turn below the 10959-78 zone (rising trend line, 23.6% Fib retracement) clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 10845.

We remain broadly bullish on the US Dollar against its leading counterparts in line with ourlong-term fundamental outlook. As such, we remain long via theMirror Trader US Dollar currency basket.
