  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10405, 10389, 10354
  • Resistance:10431, 10452, 10473

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index began a swift recovery as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern at double bottom support set from October 2013. Buyers are testing resistance at 10431, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 10452. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 10405 opens the door for a test of the 14.6% retracement at 10389.

Our long-term US Dollar outlook calls for a broadly stronger US Dollar against its major currency counterparts. With that in mind, we are holding long via theMirror Trader US Dollar currency basket.
