US Dollar Index Trend Points Higher (Webinar Recording)

US Dollar Index Trend Points Higher (Webinar Recording)

Jeremy Wagner, CEWA-M, Head of Education


This is a recording of a webinar from February 20, 2017. To attend a live US Opening Bell webinar with Jeremy obtain your free registration here.

In today’s US Opening Bell webinar, we used technical analysis and namely, Elliott Wave Theory to identify trends for DJIA, EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, GBP/JPY, AUD/USD, and Gold.

We started with DJIA (6 minute to 10 minute mark in the video) and how there are several wave relationships showing up near 20,600. We anticipate price to be sluggish and may dip to 20,400. However, we are anticipating the dip to be temporary and that it may lead to an eventual poke above 20,600. Below 20,100 will cause us to reconsider the wave count.

DXY is a market we are watching closely. (10-17 minute mark in video)

DXY appears to be sporting a bullish pattern, which suggests EUR/USD may sell off and USD/JPY may strengthen.

We spent a great deal of time on EUR/USD (17-31 minute mark). The waves suggest further downside. We will use strength to position towards eventual weakness. The key level to watch on EUR/USD bearish bias is 1.0830.

We discussed USD/JPY (38-44 minute mark) and its medium term bullish pattern using Elliott Wave and Ichimoku. 112.30 is a key level to maintain the bullish bias.

Lastly, Gold is in interesting market in that wave relationships are lining up near $1280 as a potential reaction point (59-64 minute mark). Here is the link that was discussed in the webinar on how the Gold pattern was bullish towards $1280.
