Talking Points:

  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10474-95, 10395 (channel top)
  • Resistance:10531 (May 28 high), 10589-619

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index remains in consolidation mode having secured a key upside breakout three weeks ago. The first key layer of resistance remains at 10531, the May 28 high. A break above that on a daily closing basis targets the 10589-619 region. Alternatively, a turn below support in the 10474-95 area clears the way for a test of a recently broken falling channel top, now at 10395.

Our long-term fundamental outlook continues to favor a broadly stronger US Dollar against the benchmark unit’s major counterparts. As such, we remain long via theMirror Trader US Dollar currency basket.
