  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10618, 10591, 10548
  • Resistance:10657, 10683, 10725

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Indexmay be setting up for a correction downward after prices put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 10618, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 10591. Alternatively, a turn above the 14.6% Fib expansion at 10657 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 10683.

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.
