Dollar Index - weekly ranging near bullish reversal; 95.14 is the key (based on the article)

Dollar Index by Metatrader 5

  • "Last Week's FOMC policy meeting saw interest rate expectations shift as markets priced in a fourth rate hike this year- near-term bullish for the USD. The Dollar Index posted an outside weekly reversal through confluence resistance with the rally stretching into the 200-week moving average, now at ~95. A newly identified ascending pitchfork formation extending off the 2017 and 2018 lows also has price testing the upper 50-line into the start of the week."
  • "The Dollar is testing near-term resistance here and while we could see some pullback in price, the broader focus is on a hold above the 93.89-94.20 pivot zone. A breach higher from here targets 96.04/35 backed by the median-line confluence just above the 97-handle. A break below last week’s low targets the median-line of the newly added formation around ~92.90s with critical support / bullish invalidation steady at the yearly open / 52-week moving average at 92.28/45. From a trading standpoint, I’ll favor fading weakness while above 93.90."

Dollar Index Intra-Day Fundamentals: FOMC Member Bostic Speech and range price movement 

2018-06-26 18:00 GMT | [USD - FOMC Member Bostic Speaks]

[USD - FOMC Member Bostic Speaks] = Speech at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, in Alabama.

==========

From forexlive article :

  • disruptions from trade war is going to be painful
  • Fed's job is a lot harder amid trade uncertainty 

Meanwhile, while on the topic of auto tariffs, the major automotive trade group says that: 

  • Buyers of imported vehicles would face an average price increase of $5800 from a 25% import tariff based on Commerce Department data 
  • will tell trauma administration at 25% tariff on imported vehicles would cost US consumers 45 billion in higher vehicle costs 
The higher tariffs can also lead to US auto producers boosting the price of their domestically produced cars. If a tariff is 25% and the US car company can compete with a 10% increase, they might be inclined to raise their prices 15% all things being equal. Who wins? Not the consumer.

Dollar Index - daily bullish breakout; weekly bullish reversa; 95.25 is the key (based on the article) 

Dollar Index (DXY) by Metatrader 5

  • "As the US Dollar basket yet again approaches the 95.00 handle, eyes are back on the familiar resistance, which has previously capped its rise. This is situated at 95.20, which had curbed further gains for the DXY on June 21st and 28th. The question is, will it hold again?"
  • "Trend signals suggest that there is scope for additional gains in the USD. RSI indicators on a daily timeframe is just shy of moving into the overbought area, subsequently, signalling that a continued USD rise will likely be limited. Alongside this, momentum indicators have moved into positive territory, showing slightly positive signs, however, progress is needed."
  • "Short term resistance at the 94.76 level, which marks the 76.4% Fibonacci Retracement level of the 94.20-93.33 fall is holding up for now. However, a break above this could set the DXY on course for a retest of the June double top."

Dollar Index - daily correction to the bearish reversal; 94.59/94.36 are the keys (based on the article)

Dollar Index (DXY) by Metatrader 5

  • "The ONE Thing: Despite a supportive message at Jackson Hole, the US Dollar sold off. There are a few things that one could point to (I for one, choose China,) but regardless, the hot-handed US Economy may have outrun the pack with little gas left in the tank as speculators are holding their longest positions in a year and recent performance over the last few months has been waning. If the US Economy can not continue to outperform at this out-of-character pace, we could see a softer US Dollar ahead."
  • "As China has strengthened the Renminbi, the EUR is also staging a comeback of sorts after a modest move above the 55-DMA could trigger a move to the head-and-shoulder neckline of 1.1785 with building bullish momentum. Monday’s drop in the US Dollar showed that even constructive rhetoric from Fed governors was/ has not been enough to lift the greenback that has struggled since Trump complained about Powell not being an ‘easy money’ Fed Chairman."
  • "The US Dollar is seeing its sharpest pullback after touching technical resistance mid-month at 97. The Dollar Index has pulled back by 2.4% despite hawkish talk from Fed members. The key question on the charts will be as to whether the next move higher in US Dollar will result in a lower-high that is followed by the next big breakdown."

It seems that USD is not going to fall!

Touraj Amrabadi, 2018.09.04 16:30

Against long odds US dollar reacted to its strong support and it has the potential to go even further. I think that the US dollar index can touch at least the 96.845 high.

Any comment is appreciated.

Dollar Unchanged Ahead of Fed Meeting, New Zealand Dollar Jumps

777tradesresearch, 2018.09.26 06:37

The U.S. Dollar was unchanged on Wednesday as markets awaited the conclusion of the Federal Reserve’s latest meeting, while the New Zealand Dollar jumped against the dollar on a better-than-expected business confidence report.
The Fed is widely expected to hike interest rates later in the day. Markets also anticipate another rate hike before the year end, although the outlook for 2019 is less clear, according to analysts.
As well as an interest rate decision, the Federal Reserve will also serve up its summary of economic projections, outlining policymakers' expectations on economic growth, inflation and unemployment.
The U.S. dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of other currencies, was unchanged at 93.73 by 11:01PM ET (03:01 GMT). The index has slipped around 3% since August.
Global trade tension remained in focus as China’s Vice Commerce Minister Wang Shouwen said Beijing would resume trade talks only if the U.S. show sincerity and not put a knife at China’s throat.
