US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: DXY TRYING TO CROSS 21-YR TREND-LINE

The US Dollar Index (DXY) is trying to cross a trend-line dating to 2001, a line that also connects the very important Covid 2020 high. The DXY is currently above the trend-line on a daily basis, but given its duration you need to get out a crayon to draw it and look at it on a weekly or even monthly basis.

Nevertheless, momentum has been strong and we could see the important March 2020 high at 10299 tested here shortly. Given the extend nature of the market it seems likely that on a first test of that high we may see at least a set-back induced, but we will need to wait and see how momentum is shaping up at that juncture.

For now, the outlook remains bullish until we see a sharp reversal lower. In the near-term we may see some support come in at a small peak created last week at 10103. This is also right around the long-term trend-line. Would-be longs looking to play the trend may look there for support or the trend-line off the end of March low.

A decline through that support won’t turn the outlook bearish, necessarily. The trend is strong and until we see a hard break and failure to rally it must be respected. A breakdown below last week’s low at 99.82 could start to set into motion a larger decline.

On the flip-side, shorts don’t hold any appeal given the lack of clear resistance. With that in mind, a spike to the March 2020 high could change that view if we see price action get volatile around that 10299 level.

    • Look Ahead to 07/02/23: RBA; GB Retail Sales; BP, BNPP earnings Australia’s central bank is likely to deliver a fourth consecutive quarter-point interest rate hike, after further tightening by the Fed, the ECB and the BoE. Brace for UK retail, earnings from BP (BP) and BNP Paribas (BNPP). Also, look out for US trade balance figures and Halifax house price data ahead of key UK growth data out later in the week.    Angeline Ong | Presenter, Analyst and Content Editor, London | Publication date: Monday 06 February 2023        
    • Hi, I am practicing certain strategies in demo account. I have created few screeners but when i tried to buy or short sell different stocks shortlisted based on screener conditions, i am getting different kinds of errors. Some stocks you can buy but can't short-sell and so on. I searched in the forums and i understand different restrictions such as market cap should be so and so. Are these rules defined somewhere?  for e.g. one forum reply says market cap should be above 10 billion otherwise you will get second message in below list. However even i try to short sell a stock that has £30 billion market cap, i get the same error.  1. IG is not accepting opening trades on this market, you may only place an order to close. 2. Market you have requested is not longer available online Any suggestions on the above will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
