- US Dollar Technical Strategy: Holding Long via Mirror Trader Basket **
- Support: 10388, 10375, 10354
- Resistance:10431, 10452, 10473
The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index rebounded as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern at support set from October 2013. A shallow pullback looks corrective in the context of the upside breakout that cleared resistance at the top of a falling channel set from early June. A daily close above resistance at 10431, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, targets the 50% level at 10452. Alternatively, a turn back below channel top resistance-turned-support at 10388 exposes a triple bottom in the 10354-75 area.
