Talking Points:


  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10492-502 (Mar 7 low, 38.2% Fib exp.), 10462 (50% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 10529 (23.6% Fib exp.), 10572 (trend line)


The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index is stalling near 10502,the March 7 low, after edging below the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 10529. Support is reinforced by the 38.2% Fib at 10492. A push beneath the latter level targets the 50% expansion at 10462. Alternatively, a reversal above 10529 opens the door for a test of falling trend line resistance at 10572.


We continue to see the long-term US Dollar trend as favoring the upside in the months ahead. As such, we remain long via the Mirror Trader US Dollar currency basket. **
