- US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
- Support: 11736, 11688, 11638
- Resistance:11839, 11901. 11951
The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index paused to digest losses after a shallow rebound faltered and took prices back toward April’s bottom. Near-term support is in the 11736-7 area (February 6 low, 38.2% Fibonacci expansion), with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 11688. Alternatively, a move above the 23.6% Fib retracement at 11839 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 11901.
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 the Mirror Trader US Dollar currency basket.
