- Support: 12107,11965, 11854
- Resistance:12221, 12335, 12477
The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index may be losing steam after hitting a new 11-year high as signs of negative RSI divergence begin to emerge. A daily close back below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 12407 exposes the 23.6% level at 11965. Alternatively, a push above the 50% Fib at 12221 opens the door for a challenge of the 61.8% expansion at 12335.
We remain broadly bullish on the US dollar against its leading counterparts in line with our long-term fundamental outlook. As such, we remain long via the Mirror Trader US Dollar currency basket.
*The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index and the Mirror Trader USD basket are not the same product.
