Capitalize on Shifts in Market Mood with the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are pulling back from falling trend line resistance set from the July 8 high (now at 10844) to test support in the 10790-803 area, marked by the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and the June 24 high. A break downward initially eyes the 50% Fib at 10739. Alternatively, a reversal above the trend line sees the next level of resistance at 10882, the 23.6% level.
