- Support: 10431, 10406, 10375
- Resistance:10452, 10473, 10499
The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index continues to push higher having reversed upward as expected after producing a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern. Sellers now aim to challenge the 50% Fibonacci retracement at 10452, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 10743. Alternatively, a move back below the 38.2% Fib at 10431 targets trend line support at 10406, followed by a long-standing triple bottom in the 10354-75 area.
