The US dollar index is expected to bounce at least towards the 38% Fibonacci retracement near the Ichimoku cloud at 92.60 over the coming days. The double bottom formation, as long as it is not broken downwards, should give the dollar a push higher.

On a weekly basis, the trend remains bearish as long as the price is below 93.75. Today's weekly close will be important and will give us a clue for what to expect next week. There are many chances of a full-scale upward reversal and move towards 97, but we need to see some reversal signs starting today.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
