The US dollar index held support yesterday and started a strong upward move favoring our bullish scenario as the price held important support levels and the bullish channel. The trend is bullish and as long as the price is above 96.20, I will favor bullish positions targeting new highs.
Black lines – bullish channel
The US dollar index held above the lower channel boundary and reversed higher from the 38% retracement. This bounce is an important bullish signal. The index has broken above the Kijun-sen (yellow indicator) and is trying to break above the Ichimoku cloud. Breaking above the cloud will confirm bullish trend.
Blue line – trendline resistance
The weekly chart remains bullish as the weekly candle has moved back above the Kijun-sen indicator. Important support is at this week's lows and resistance is at 97.80. As long as the price is above 96.20, I favor the bullish scenario. Breaking above resistance will confirm this scenario and is a sign to add to longs.
