How Dollar Index Can Keep Your Trades Success

How Dollar Index Can Keep Your Trades Success 

Dollar Index 
The US Dollar Index (DXY) was under pressure after Wednesday’s FOMC statement, while poor US GDP figures provided follow through to the downside on Friday. The sharp selloff erased the prior four weeks of gains in DXY but we have a lot of activity this week, and the trend could change easily
After The dollar index go above 97 last month for the first time since February 2016, he made rebound and fell almost 2 % since then, dollar index price now 95.53 dollar index which measures the dollar against a basket of currencies ended down 1.3 percent, EUR rose 0.85 percent to $1.1172, JPY rose 2.78 percent to 102.3
Fed policy makers will gather again in Washington on June 14-15, and Chair Janet Yellen will discuss the decision in a press conference, so I do not expect to see some big changes before that, also as I mention my last post on the dollar index we need to wait and see what will happen at 95-96 area, Futures markets see the probability of an interest rate rise in December at 35.7 percent, according to CME Fed Watch

From the Technical side
on dollar index price:  look on the charts we can see support at 95+_ the level served as resistance throughout April and provided support in May, dollar index rate should keep above those level to confirm more upside, fall through could take it to the next support level of 92-93 ,dollar index rate also is expected to find its first resistance at 95.30-60, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 96.20, For my opinion we probably see the dollar index rate at least  to 95.60-96 area for a test, if not low level such as 94.30 taken into consider
COT data indicates a build of $3.55bn in net longs to $14.88bn held in the US dollar among non-commercials. The figure reflects a 31% increase in net longs on a week over week basis, and follows a 27% bump in the prior week. The US Dollar was the largest net long position held among currencies by a significant margin at the start of the prior week, but we can see something below the surfaces -Dealer COT in the 30yr notes: decrease in short position while growing on the net position- this could tell us that bottom is near!

Stronger US data in the new week can easily see probabilities moving back to the high 30’s, while it is unlikely that the DXY will regain the 97.00 handle, even if inflation and labor data strengthen this week. The data points to a squeeze in Dollar in the prior week, the momentum in the decline will likely subside this week.
Final words:

we can see there is more room for going up follows strong moves by the expectation,
don’t surprise if we will see dollar index price going lower over the last lows 92 area, still to come test 95-96 area -break up again those levels, and holding above should give the dollar index prices  to see higher level and even new records- it’s all open
