Ichimoku cloud indicator analysis of USDX for February 2, 2018

The Dollar index continues to trade in a bearish trend. Price got rejected at the short-term resistance yesterday and is making new lows. I expect the January 25th low to be broken soon. Maybe today, maybe next week after a bounce, but overall the chances favor the index to go towards 87.

Black line - long-term support

The monthly chart of the Dollar index shows it inside the monthly Kumo (cloud) challenging the long-term black trend line support. This support trend line is at the same level with the lower cloud boundary at 86.80. Price is also at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the rise from 2013. This is long-term support area. Short-term traders should remain bearish as long as price is below 89.60, while longer-term traders should be patient for a bounce soon.
