US Dollar Technical Outlook: DXY Chart Getting Sloppy into Holidays

Recommended Posts


  • DXY wedge breakout getting messy
  • The trend is up until it isn’t, general trading bias higher


The US Dollar Index (DXY) had a nicely forming wedge heading into last week’s slew of central bank activity, and it looked as though there was going to be a clean trigger and directional move prior to holiday trading setting in.

But this is no longer appearing to be the case, as the chart gets sloppy. It is common for triangles to fake-break before reversing in the sustainable direction, but now with the timing of holidays it is becoming a bit of a toss-up as to how to play things here.

The break higher and reversal (triangle fake-out breakout) on the FOMC appeared to set things up for a move lower, while the breakdown out of the triangle and decline below the slope from June appeared ready to confirm the move. However, the inability to decline below 95.85 prevented downside confirmation.

In fact, not only did the DXY fail to decline below 95.85, it is used that level as the exact low on Thursday. All-in-all, support kept the upside intact. The trend remains pointed higher for the DXY, and as such it appear prudent to continue giving the trend the benefit of the doubt.

Trade might be choppy here on through the end of the year with liquidity getting drained through reduced participation. The general trading bias is really to do nothing at this time.

    • As sustainability continues to shape investment strategies, two standout ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) stocks to consider in 2024 are Tesla and NextEra Energy. Tesla (TSLA) remains a leader in the electric vehicle market, driving the transition to sustainable energy with its innovative technologies and strong commitment to reducing carbon emissions. NextEra Energy (NEE), one of the largest producers of wind and solar energy, exemplifies strong environmental practices and governance, making it a top choice for ESG-focused investors.
