USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index advances to a fresh monthly high despite the unexpected downtick in the core rate of inflation.
  • Looks as though Fed will retain a dovish tone for monetary policy as the stickiness in the headline reading for inflation was largely driven by higher energy costs.
  • Nevertheless, close above 10,440 (78.6% Fibonacci retracement) should bring up 10,470 next.
  • Interim Resistance: 10,508 (61.8% retracement) to 10,524 (38.2% retracement)
  • Interim Support: 10,354 (Oct. low) to 10,375 (50.0& retracement)
