  • US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
  • Support: 10627, 10595, 10576
  • Resistance:10652, 10677, 10709

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index is correcting lower after hitting a six-month high having rallied as expected following the appearance of a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 10627 exposes the 23.6% level at 10595. Alternatively, a move above the 50% Fib at 10652 opens the door for a challenge of the 61.8% expansion at 10677.

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.
