Dollar Index - "The forecast for the U.S. Dollar will remain
as neutral for the week ahead. While near-term price action is bearish,
the longer-term up-trend and justification for such continues to exist
as the U.S. is still one of the few developed global economies even
debating the prospect of higher rates at the moment."

Dollar Index - "The US unit may build on Friday’s gains if
the Fed ends up dominating the spotlight, stoking March rate hike
possibilities. Dangling the prospect of a two-pronged tightening effort –
raising front-end borrowing costs and reducing the weight of the
balance sheet on the long end of the yield curve – may go a long way
indeed. Unsettling news-flow from team Trump may shatter this rosy

Dollar Index - ranging inside Ichimoku cloud waiting for the direction (based on the article)
Daily price is located inside Ichimoku cloud for the ranging market condition: price is located within 101.74 resistance level for the bullish trend to be resumed and 100.39 support level for the bearish reversal to be started.
"Recent DXY updates have noted that “if a broader decline is underway, then resistance probably needs to register (again) near the channel line that has been resistance and support since Brexit…the 55 day average is up here too.” Resistance is holding and a possible head and shoulders top is evident and would confirm on a drop under the February low. Even then, trendline support registers below 98.00. Watch for range support near 99.80."

Dollar Index - "The week ahead will keep the same themes firmly in the spotlight. A busy docket of scheduled commentary from Fed policymakers is headlined by remarks from Chair Yellen and Governor Lael Brainard, a vocal dove. If she too is keen to get on with stimulus withdrawal, a hike in March will seem more likely. On the economic data front, a broad offering of activity indicators is expected to show steady progress in line with recent trends. A revised set of fourth-quarter GDP figures is projected to deliver an upgrade, nudging the on-year growth rate to 2.1 percent from the originally reported 1.8 percent. At face value, this seems like a generally supportive environment for the US currency. However, it may all prove for naught if fiscal considerations spoil the mood again. Whether or not that happens will depend on President Trump, who is due to address a joint session of Congress on Wednesday."
