- US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
- Support: 11740, 11653, 11513
- Resistance:11829, 11876, 11963
The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index looks to have reversed downward as expected after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci retracementat 11740 exposes the 23.6% level at 11653. Alternatively, a turn above trend line support-turned-resistance at 11829 clears the way for a test of the 11854-76 zone (14.6% Fib expansion, March 2009 high).
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.
