US Dollar Index Price Chart – DXY Weekly

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

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

Notes: In last month’s US Dollar Weekly Price Outlook noted that a rebound off confluence support had fueled a near-term recovery in the index with, “97.83 & 98.50- both regions of interest for possible topside exhaustion IF reached.” Price registered a high at 97.80 in the following days before resuming lower with the decline now attempting to mark its sixth consecutive week. The sell-off has broken below the objective yearly opening-range lows with the index now approaching the next support level around 93.23- a pivot zone defined by the May 2015 close lows and converges on the lower parallel of a broader descendingpitchfork formation extending off the yearly high.

A break / close below this threshold is needed to keep the short-bias viable with such a scenario exposing subsequent support objectives at 92.28 and the 2017 low-week close / 78.6% Fibonacci retracement at 91.33/40– both key levels in price. Initial resistance now back at the 2016 low-week close / 61.8% retracement at 93.88/92 with bearish invalidation now lowered to the 25% parallel / 2019 low at 95.03.

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 sell-off is poised to complete a sixth weekly decline to fresh yearly lows into confluence support – look for a reaction down here with the shorts vulnerable near-term. From a trading standpoint a good zone to reduce short-exposure / lower protective stop – keep an eye out for topside exhaustion ahead of the 95-handle IF the index is indeed heading lower with a close sub-93.23 needed to keep the focus on longer-term uptrend support near 92.20s. I’ll publish and updated US Dollar Price Outlook one we get further clarity on the near-term DXY technical trade levels.
