Talking Points:

  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10431 (trend line), 10375 (double bottom)
  • Resistance:10474-95, 10531 (May 28 high)

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index corrected cautiously higher ahead of the upcoming FOMC monetary policy announcement. Resistance lines up in the 10474-95 area, with a break above that on a daily closing basis opening the door for another test of the May 28 high at 10531. Support comes in at a pivotal rising trend line set from July 2011, now at 10431. A breach of this barrier would suggest a major reversal is in play and initially clear the way for a challenge of double bottom support at 10375.

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