Talking Points:

  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 104446 (channel top)
  • Resistance: 10474-95, 10589-619

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index appears to have set a major double bottom at 10375, the October 2013 bottom. An upward trend change is being hinted by a break above resistance at the top of a falling channel that had guided the downward trajectory since the beginning of the year. Resistance is in the 10474-95 area, with a break above that clearing the way for a move to challenge the 10589-619 region. The channel top, now at 10446, has been recast as near-term support.

We remain broadly bullish on the US Dollar against its leading counterparts in line with our long-term fundamental outlook. As such, we remain long via theMirror Trader US Dollar currency basket.
