Ichimoku cloud indicator analysis of USDX for February 9, 2018

The Dollar index has stopped its ascension at the kijun-sen resistance. Bulls need to be very cautious because this is also the 38% Fibonacci retracement of the decline from 94.25. We might see one more new lower low towards 87 in the Dollar index before a bigger bounce. This scenario will be confirmed on a break below 89.60.

The Dollar index has broken out of the Ichimoku cloud and is trading above it. This is good news for bulls. We could see a pull back to back test the broken cloud. This back test could pull back price towards 89.60-89.30 which is now support. Bulls must defend this level if prices turn lower.
