The US Dollar index is pulling back in a corrective pattern as we expected two days ago. Despite yesterday’s bounce towards 97,80, we saw a rejection at the 61.8% retracement of the latest decline. Now, we see new lows below 97.10 towards cloud support.
Black lines – bullish channel
The US Dollar Index remains inside the medium-term bullish channel and is now testing Ichimoku cloud support as shown in my 4-hour chart. Support is found at 96.80 while resistance is at 97.60 by the kijun-sen (yellow indicator) and at 97.80 the recent high.
In overall, the US Dollar Index is back testing the kijun-sen (yellow indicator) in the weekly chart. If the bullish scenario comes true, we should see a strong bounce from this support area. If the weekly chart closes below 95.80, the bullish scenario will be in danger. The rise so far from 93.10 is in 3 waves and this implies a correction. Therefore we will need some upside resumption in order to enable bulls to remain in control. Otherwise, the bearish scenario of a deeper correction towards 90 restarts will take place.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company – www.instaforex.com
