Talking Points:

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index turned lower from a five-year high as expected after completing a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 11379, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 11291. Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% Fib at 11434 clears the way for a test December 8 high at 11522.

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.
