Elliott Wave Webinar: US Dollar Index Prepares For Counter Trend Rally

Elliott Wave Webinar: US Dollar Index Prepares For Counter Trend Rally

Jeremy Wagner, CEWA-M, Head of Education

US Dollar Index is nearing the end of an Elliott Wave impulse pattern. Dollar is approaching a support zone that may cause it to strengthen back towards 95 DXY and EUR/USD may drop towards 1.12.

The video above is a recording of a US Opening Bell webinar from January 22, 2018.

In today’s US Opening Bell webinar, we discussed key markets using Elliott Wave Theory such as (and not in this order) DXY, EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, USD/CAD, Oil, and Gold.

The Elliott Wave chart for US Dollar Index (DXY) illustrates an important high occurred near 104 in December 2016. Since then, US Dollar has sold off hard and has nearly completed an Elliott Wave impulse pattern to the downside. This suggests the Dollar Index may find its footing soon and stage its largest rally in over a year back towards 95-98. According to the four-hour price chart below, wave (iv) and (v) are needed to finalize the near term down trend.

EUR/USD Elliott Wave Analysis

If Dollar Index may pivot towards strength soon, then that suggests EUR/USD may top and pivot lower in the coming days. The Elliott Wave analysis for EUR/USD shows that it is also looking for a wave (iv) and wave (v) to finish its up trend. Once final waves of (v) are in place, then we can count the whole pattern since March 2015 as an expanded flat Elliott Wave pattern. The next move is likely to be several hundred pips lower towards 1.10-1.12.

EURUSD Sentiment Analysis

Sentiment is also indicating some subtle shifts. The number of traders net short on EUR/USD has shifted lower despite the market driving higher by 200 pips. This indicates to me that short traders are giving up and beginning to shift towards long positions. Sentiment is a contrarian tool so that subtle shift can be a bearish signal if that trend continues.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which markets can Elliott Wave Theory be applied to when analyzing trade set-ups?

Elliott Wave Theory is a study of wave patterns and therefore needs to be applied to markets large enough that experience mass behavior. My favorite markets to apply the Elliott Wave principle to are the main forex markets as well as Gold, Oil, and Dow Jones Industrial Average. To get started read our beginners and advanced Elliott Wave guides that will cover some of the basic patterns and how to trade with Elliott Wave Theory.

I have traded shares before, but not forex…how do I get started?

You are in good company as I have followed that same path as you starting with shares and eventually trading in FX. I also know many other people who have followed a similar path. A good way to get started is to read our New to Forex guide. Then, as a follow up, it is important to understand the habits that make traders successful.
