  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10375, 10354, 10306
  • Resistance:10431, 10452, 10473

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index rebounded as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern at support set from October 2013. A shallow pullback looks corrective in the context of the upside breakout that cleared resistance at the top of a falling channel set from early June. A daily close above resistance at 10431, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, targets the 50% level at 10452. Alternatively, a turn below triple bottom support in the 10354-75 area targets a multi-year horizontal pivot in play since August 2010 at 10306.

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.
