US Dollar Index Price Chart – DXY Daily

US Dollar Index Price Chart - DXY Daily - USD Trade Outlook - Technical Forecast

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; US Dollar Index on Tradingview

Technical Outlook: In my last US Dollar Weekly Price Outlook we noted that the, “The Dollar Index has broken below a multi-week consolidation / the May opening-range lows and keeps the focus lower heading into June.” The greenback is down more than 1.3% this week as the decline took another leg lower with DXY testing confluence support into the close on Friday.

The zone in focus is 96.44/50- a region defined by the objective yearly open & the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of the March advance and converges on basic parallel support. The 100% extension of the broader decline rests just lower at 96.21 and a break / close below this threshold is needed to keep the immediate short-bias viable towards the 2019 low-day close at 95.55.

Notes: A closer look at Dollar price action shows DXY trading within the confines of a descending pitchfork formation extending off the May highs with the lower parallel further highlighting the 96.44/50 support zone. Initial resistance now at the median-line / November lows at 97.11 with near-term bearish invalidation now lowered to the 2018 high / 61.8% retracement at 97.71/87- a breach / close above this threshold would be needed to shift the focus back to the long-side in the Dollar.

For a complete breakdown of Michael’s trading strategy, review his Foundations of Technical Analysis series on Building a Trading Strategy

Bottom line: The US Dollar breakdown has taken the index into confluence support at the objective yearly open. From at trading standpoint, a good spot to reduce short-exposure / lower protective stops. Be on the lookout for topside exhaustion ahead of 97.87 IF price is indeed heading lower with a close below 96.21 needed to mark resumption. Keep in mind we have the FOMC interest rate decision on tap next week – stay nimble.
