USD Technical Analysis: Euro Parity Bounce Leading to Important First Test


The DXY index is coming off with good momentum from its recent peak on the back of a rally from just under parity in the Euro. Given that EUR accounts for about 57% of the DXY’s weighting the index will react in near inverse fashion.

The correction in the trend may be short-lived, but we may very well see a period of horizontal price action develop before the broader trends try to reassert themselves. What this move doesn’t look like at this time is a big-picture reversal. That would take a good bit more of time to get a handle on if it is.

The first levels to watch in the DXY and EUR/USD are 10581 and the 10340s, respectively. The DXY support level is a solid one with both the June high and a trend-line from May coming into confluence around the same price point.

The EUR/USD has the 2017 low at 10340, which is just a fraction lower than a pair of lows that developed in May and June. A short ways higher above those lows is a channel line dating to February. It’s a strong channel given its duration and connecting points, including the recent one just under parity.

The thinking is that we will see a bit more of the recent trends unfold, but soon support/resistance DXY/Euro will offer up some type of reaction points. How impactful those levels are will help determine whether a larger move can unfold or if the corrective move is over.

    • It is a best practice to buy dip and sell high but this strategy mostly doesn’t go as planned because you can’t predict the final bottom. Some traders BTD anticipating a potential pullback which mostly doesn’t happen and this force some into panic selling. DYOR is mostly advisable but some people fail to know which analysis they should focus more on. When deciding to hold a token for a long-term FA is very important and its cardinal point should be thoroughly scrutinized before making such a decision. These points include; Whitepaper, Road map, and Usecase. These points have a huge impact on deciding how long to hold a project and also booast your confidence in the project's bullish potential.  The first principle in this industry is “invest what you can afford to lose" though many neglect this principle as such when a project is going through a price correction they panic sell and sell at a huge lost. Most normal regret their decision later when they see the project back on track. Once you adhere to the first principle you hardly fall victim to panic sales. Note that it is mostly not advisable to hold meme tokens una less you are convinced because meme goes with the hype and finds it hard to retest its ATH once the hype is over.  Anyway what are your trading strategy and principles you adhere to most?
