The Dollar index marginally broke below the bullish short-term channel yesterday but sharply came back inside. The announcement of Non-Farm Payrolls today could give a boost for the Dollar for the final new high. Or is this what everyone expects and the market will not deliver?
Blue lines — bullish channel
The Dollar index remains in a bullish trend. Price is breaking above both the tenkan- and kijun-sen indicators prior to the announcement of the NFP later today. Technically as long as we are above yesterday lows we should be heading towards 95-95.50.
The price on the weekly chart has nothing new to show us. We remain close to the 38% Fibonacci retracement and the weekly kijun-sen. The longer-term trend remains bearish. We could see one final spike higher towards 95.50 but I believe that over the coming weeks the downtrend will resume.
