US Dollar Technical Analysis: Triangle Setup Favors Upside

US Dollar Technical Analysis: Triangle Setup Favors Upside

Talking Points:

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index may be carving out a symmetrical Triangle, a chart pattern hinting at on-coming uptrend continuation. A daily close above 12066 (14.6% Fibonacci expansion, Triangle top) exposes the 12149-77 area (March 13 high, 23.6% level). Alternatively, a move below Triangle floor support at 11970 opens the door for a challenge of the 11858-86 zone (March 18 low, 23.6% Fibonacci retracement).

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