The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index paused to consolidate losses after dropping to the weakest level in four months. Near-term support is at 11638, the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 76.4% level at 11576. Alternatively, a turn above the 50% Fib at 11688 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 11737.
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.
