US Dollar Highlights:

  • USD Index (DXY) trying for a replay of the summer
  • EUR/USD the main driver behind the DXY
  • GBP/USD still holding up, but may succumb to selling
  • USD/CAD trying to recapture trend-line break

USD Index (DXY) trying for a replay of the summer

The US Dollar Index (DXY) didn’t quite make it down to the trend-line from September of last year, but it did hold the 200-day, relatively speaking, with only a couple of minor recent breaches. The surge thus far this week has a similar look to it.

The push higher has momentum matching rallies that happened from previous multi-week lows, such as in June/July and September of last year. Those lows led to price swings to new cycle highs. That would mean the 100-line could come into play before year-end. A break below 97.11 and the trend-line will dent a bullish outlook, potentially putting significant pressure on the Dollar.

EUR/USD the main driver behind the DXY

The Euro broke the channel off the October low, and with a little more weakness it will have no real support to keep it from running lower to the lows beneath 10900. As ~57% of the DXY index, the Euro will be the main driver of its next move. A bump higher from here will have the recent highs, the September trend-line, and 200-day in play as resistance around 11175/90.

GBP/USD still holding up, but may succumb to selling

Cable has held up relatively well given the monster move last month. The digestion phase could take on the shape of a wedge with a little more time, but it will need to hold here around the top slope of the channel off the September low. A breakdown below the slope and 12788 could bring some pressure on GBP/USD and a more pronounced pullback.

USD/CAD trying to recapture trend-line break

USD/CAD bounce has the 2012 trend-line back in play, so far it is not fully above but trying to recapture the threshold. A move above 13208 should do the trick and have more upside in play towards the 200-day at 13274 and the May trend-line just above that level. A breakdown through 13115 could indicate recent strength to only be a bounce and have the important 13000-level under attack.
