USDOLLAR (Ticker: USDollar):

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index at risk for larger correction as price & RSI fail to maintain bearish trend.
  • With the broader downward trending channel still in play, downside targets remain favorable, while former support around 10,440 (78.6% retracement) may offer near-term resistance.
  • The Humphrey-Hawkins Testimony with Fed Chair Janet Yellen presents the largest event risk for the USDOLLAR; will we get more of the same?


  • Will continue to look for closing prices above the 1.7100 handle as 1.7060-70 (23.6% retracement) offers intraday support.
  • U.K. Consumer Price Index (CPI) may limit the correction as headline reading for inflation is expected to increase an annualized 1.6% in June.
  • Topside targets remain favorable as price & RSI preserve bullish formations from earlier this year.


  • May fail to preserve ascending channel formation should the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Minutes highlight recent comments from Governor Glenn Stevens.
  • Near-term support still stands at 0.9330-40; need break and close below to see a move back towards the 0.9200 handle.
  • China 2Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP) will also be a key event risk to watch as the growth rate is expected to expand 1.8% versus 1.4% during the first three-months of 2014.
