USD Technical Analysis: DXY Outlook in the Days Ahead


Recommended Posts

USD TECHNICAL OUTLOOK

  • US Dollar Index (DXY) bouncing but may have some more downside before finding support
  • Overall the broader trend is higher, so that could make any more weakness short-lived
 

USD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: DXY OUTLOOK IN THE DAYS AHEAD

The US Dollar Index (DXY) has been weak the past few weeks since hitting a feverish pitch in sentiment. The selling has been steady, but not extremely intense. Given the broader trend higher we could see strength soon, but not before another small leg lower perhaps.

The minor swing-low formed on May 5 at 10235 was broken just recently, and while not viewed as significant, it could nevertheless act as resistance on this bounce. A turn down from that point or sooner would likely bring into play the 101 area.

Whether we have seen the worst of the decline or have a little more room to go, looking for the USD to at the very least make a strong attempt to reassert itself at some time in the not-too-distant future. This makes shorting at these levels potentially tricky without seeing some type of clear signaling on a failed attempt to rally.

Looking at the longer-term picture, some time spent oscillating sideways could do the DXY some good for building a base from which is can continue to power higher. If this is the case it could take a good several weeks before real buying comes in.

For now, in wait-and-see mode until a clearer picture presents itself. A strong reaction of the 101 area may set up would-be longs for an entry. Fresh shorts have lost their appeal on this end, while existing shorts may want to implement some type of trailing stop strategy.

    • 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.
