USDX technical analysis for July 31, 2015

The US dollar index has bounced from the lower channel boundary after the FOMC meeting and has managed to break above the 4-hour Ichimoku cloud giving a bullish signal. Now it has reached important resistance area, and if we see a rejection at the current levels, we should expect a pullback towards channel support again.

Black lines – bullish channel

Red line – horizontal resistance

The US dollar index is now trading above the Ichimoku cloud but below the short-term resistance at 97.80. A daily close above this resistance will open the way for a weekly breakout above the weekly resistance at 98-98.20.

Red line – horizontal resistance

With the weekly candle turned blue again and above the kijun-sen indicator, all signs are bullish for the US dollar index. Support at 96.25 is very important for the medium-term trend of the index. A break below 96.25 will be a very bearish signal with a possible longer-term pullback towards 90. For now, bulls have the upper hand.
