Red lines -bullish channel (broken)

The Dollar index is heading towards the Kumo (cloud) resistance in the 4-hour chart at 93.60. If price breaks this resistance we should expect the lower channel boundary at 93.70-93.80 to be tested. At these resistance levels, short-term traders could try to open short positions as risk reward favors the bearish side.

Red lines - trading range

On a daily basis we see the kijun-sen (yellow line indicator) cross below the tenkan-sen (red line indicator). Although this would normally be a bullish sign, this is the result of the sideways movement of prices. Moreover, a cross below the cloud diminishes the strength of a bullish signal. I continue to expect that prices will break down towards 91.50. For this scenario to be confirmed we need to see new weekly lows.
