Talking Points:

  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10495-500 (Mar 19 low, 38.2% Fib exp.), 10470 (50% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 10595 (38.2% Fib ret.), 10626 (50% Fib ret.)

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index is still trading sideways in a choppy range below resistance at 10595, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. A push through initial support in the 10495-500 area, marked by the 38.2% Fib expansion and the March 19 low, targets the 50% level at 10470. Alternatively, a turn back above resistance exposes the 50% Fib retracement at 10626.

Our long-term fundamental outlook continues to favor a stronger US Dollar against its major currency counterparts in the months ahead. As such, we continue to hold a long position via theMirror Trader US Dollar currency basket. **
