US Dollar Technical Analysis: New Cycle Highs Around the Bend

US Dollar Technical Analysis: New Cycle Highs Around the Bend

 

The US Dollar Index (DXY) has been treading water the past few days following the CPI print last Tuesday that sent markets into scramble mode. This week we have FOMC as the big headline event, with BoJ and BoE following within the same 24-hour period.

 

From a technical standpoint, the trend is up and the Dollar index appears poised to break above the recent high at 110.78. Whether that happens pre or post Fed is of course to be seen. In any event it is going to take a lot of turn the trend around, but we could see the DXY weaken near-term before higher.

 

If this is the case in the very near-term keep the bottom of the recent rage at 109.27 in focus as the first line of support. The index is digesting nicely around the July high at 109.29. A small breakdown could put in an order for a potential validation of the budding trend-line off the August low.

 

If a real bout of selling comes in then look to the low prior to CPI at 107.68. It appears unlikely we see that level anytime soon, but it can’t be ruled out given the explosive moves we have seen around the Fed.

 

Seasonality for stocks, which is applicable to the dollar given the inverse relationship, is at the weakest point right now, so this would suggest a dollar tailwind. The thinking is that we will see a new cycle low in stocks next month and perhaps a tradable low.

 

With the above in mind, this would mean the dollar is likely to stay bid for a bit longer before any kind of meaningful correction can develop.

    • @KoketsoIGFollowing up endlessly. Any updates yet?
    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
