- US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
- Support: 11836, 11759, 11711
- Resistance: 11898, 11960, 12037
The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index accelerated upward, advancing to the highest level in three weeks. Near-term resistance is at 11898, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 11960. Alternatively, a turn back below the 38.2% Fib at 11836 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% retracement at 11759.
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.
