The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index is struggling to breach December’s high, with negative RSI divergence warning a double top may be forming. A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci retracementat 11489 exposes the 23.6% level at 11379. Alternatively, a reversal above the December 8 high at 11522opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% Fib expansion at 11577.
Our long-term fundamental 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.
