USD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: DXY OUTLOOK IN THE DAYS AHEAD

The US Dollar Index (DXY) is continuing its recent run of weakness as it pulls back sharply from recent highs. The extremes in bullish sentiment suggested the dollar needed to cool off, and so the recent slide isn’t surprising.

The question is, is whether the USD can reassert its bullish ways quickly, or if it will need some time to digest the run before continuing higher. It’s also possible we are seeing a larger reversal, but at this time that appears to have a lower probability than an eventual trend continuation.

In any event, the DXY is trading around its first level of support via a swing low created on May 5 at 102.35. This is below the trend-line extending higher from the late March low, but even though the trend-line has been broken it doesn’t mean we will necessarily see further weakness.

However, if we see the DXY closes on a daily basis below price support then look for weakness to continue with the 102.35 level turning into a potential source of resistance. The next level up could be the backside test of a 20-year trend-line down near 101, but conviction is lacking in that acting as support until we see the DXY trade around it and show bullish price action.

If support at hand can hold and the DXY pushes higher here, then we may be in for a rangebound period of trading that would do the USD some good in terms of building a base for another run higher. Given the big move and extreme bullishness recently surrounding the dollar a little time would do it some good.

    • While the Fed minutes last night stressed that more rate hikes would be needed, signs of weakness in commodity prices have given markets hope that perhaps the worst of the inflation surge is now behind us. Markets can, perhaps, cope with rate rises as long as the outlook further down the road is looking brighter. Asian indices made headway, taking their cue from the recovery in the US yesterday after a shaky couple of days. In the UK the political drama drags on, with no sign that the Prime Minister intends to resign yet even as resignations continue to flow from his cabinet and the wider government payroll. Investors now begin to turn their attention towards Friday's payroll figures, the main event of the week.
