The US Dollar Index pulled back yesterday to test the breakout area after it had broken out above the medium-term resistance. This pullback was considered a buying opportunity as the trend remains bullish in the short term and bulls are in control of this trend.
Blue lines – important support trend lines
The US Dollar Index broke above the downward sloping trendline and back tested it and bounced. The price also holds above the Ichimoku cloud and above the upward sloping blue trendline. The Index is headins towards higher highs and higher lows. A trend is bullish. Support is seen at 95.85. In case it gets broken, we should expect a push towards 95-94.50.
Blue line – medium-term trend line resistance
The US Dollar Index weekly chart is trading above the medium-term trend-line resistance. The price is also above the kijun- and tenkan-sen indicators. The medium-term trend is unclear yet. Short- and long-term trends remain bullish. Important weekly resistance is seen at 97.80. A weekly break above this resistance level will increase chances for a new upward move towards new highs.
