The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index broke higher out of a Triangle chart pattern as expected, hinting at continued gains ahead. Near-term resistance is in the 12149-77 area (March 13 high, 23.6% Fibonacci expansion), with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 12356. Alternatively, a reversal below 12066 (14.6% expansion, Triangle top) clears the way for a test of the Triangle floor at 11974.
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.
