US Dollar Technical Analysis: Down Trend Boundary Tested

US Dollar Technical Analysis: Down Trend Boundary Tested

Talking Points:

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index launched a corrective recovery having found support at the lowest level in four months. Near-term resistance is at 11759, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 11836. Alternatively, a turn below the 61.8% Fib expansion at 11638 clears the way for a test of the 76.4% threshold at 11576.

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.
