  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10513-27, 10481, 10456
  • Resistance:10560, 10606, 10663

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index is consolidating gains after turning higher as expected having put in a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern. A daily close above resistance at 10560, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, exposes the 61.8% level at 10606. Alternatively, a turn back below resistance-turned-support in the 10513-27 area marked by the May 28 high and 38.2% Fib clears a path for a challenge of 10481, the intersection of a horizontal pivot in play since April and a rising trend line established from the July 1 low.

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.
