The US Dollar Index remains in a short-term bearish trend but also holds above the critical support at 94.50 and 93.10. With the FOMC meeting taking place tonight, the US dollar is expected to see some price volatility and traders should be patient until Yellen's speech.
Red line – trend line resistance
The US Dollar Index is trading below the trend-line resistance and below the Ichimoku cloud in the 4-hour chart. The short-term trend is bearish. Resistance is seen at 95.04 by the trendline and the next resistance is expected by the cloud at 95.25. Support is found at 94.50 and then at 93.10.
The weekly chart remains weak as there are increased chances of a push lower towards 90 if support at 93.10 gets broken. However, bulls have one last chance to reverse the current bearish trend. A breakout above 96.65 is likely to increase chances for resumption of the uptrend to new highs.
