The US Dollar Index broke above the bullish flag pattern and above the short-term resistance of 96.20. The trend is bullish but there are some signs of weakness. With NFP numbers announced today, traders should be very cautious as volatility is expected to rise sharply today.
Green line – support
The index is in a bullish short-term trend moving towards higher highs and higher lows. Support is seen at 96.10 and 95.80. A breakout below these levels will probably push the index even lower towards the cloud support at 95. In case of a breakout below the cloud support, we will find the next support at 94.
This week’s candle is still below the kijun-sen (yellow line indicator). This is not a good sign. A rejection at these levels will be a bearish signal. Bulls need to be very cautious as my forecast of the second pullback towards 92 is still in play.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company – www.instaforex.com
