US Dollar Technical Analysis: DXY Nearing Significant Point in Price, Time

Aug 22, 2022 | DailyFX

  • US Dollar Index (DXY) is nearing the important July high
  • Time is also a factor here as we head towards the fall

The US Dollar Index (DXY) is nearing the July high at 10929, an important high as the bull cycle looks set to continue. We may not see the dollar break out and run without a set-back, but as we head towards the fall the anticipation is we will see much higher levels.

The timing of this recent round of strength comes as we head towards a weak time of the year for stocks, and with the S&P 500 looking to have already concluded or very near completing a counter-trend summer rally, we could see the resurgence of dollar-on, risk-off in a big way.

The big driver of the DXY is the EUR/USD, accounting for ~57% of the index, and with its initial bounce of parity failing we are seeing parity back in play again. A bounce, likely a smaller iteration this time, could develop in the very near-term, but is seen a likely to fail and lead to levels much lower than parity.

How much lower? The 2000 low at 8231 appears at real risk of being seen in the relatively near future. This would mean a much, much higher DXY of course.

Taking it one step at a time, first thing is first for the DXY – the 10929 high. We may see a failure from there initially, but looking for the pullback to be more of a buying opportunity than a reversal signal.

    • Hi, is anyone else missing Monday's gold data? 27.03.2023.   I messaged IG and the "help"desk guy said 'try reinstalling the app. I did. That did not work.  I have no gold data for Monday 27.03.2023. Not on my phone app, not on my MacBook IG webpage and not on pro realtime. Prorealtime is not even loading up for me on the MacBook Pro.

    • In general, I will start with the fact that I was looking for a cube would be possible to invest money to multiply Some bets, stock exchanges didn't really work for me. I decided to look for something really worthwhile. In general I got to cryptocurrency, studied it for a while and tried to get into it. Then I got interested in all sorts of nft, metaverse, and so on And then I found a quite interesting and fresh project It's called Sabai Ecoverse. There, and you can earn from zero, and multiply the capital. In general, I just started to get into it. Can you also look at and say your opinion, please
