Dollar Index Technical Analysis: DXY's struggle for direction continues

  • The dollar index (DXY), which tracks the value of the greenback against majors, hit a high of 97.69 on Nov. 12 and has struggled for direction ever since.
  • As of writing, it is seen at 97.06 and is trapped in a narrowing price range or a symmetrical triangle pattern.
  • A break below 93.64 would imply range breakdown and validate the bearish divergence of the 14-day RSI (confirmed on Nov. 12) and hence could yield a drop to support at 95.00.
  • A daily close above 97.53 would confirm a symmetrical triangle breakout and open the doors to 98.50 (May 8, 2017 low).
  • A symmetrical triangle looks more likely, courtesy of dovish Fed expectations and falling haven demand amid the rising odds of US-China trade deal.
