Ichimoku cloud indicator analysis of USDX for February 22, 2018

The Dollar index has reversed its short-term trend to bullish. The price is breaking above important resistance levels for the short-term and is challenging medium-term trend change levels. There is many chances the Dollar index decline from 103.60 is over.


Red line - long-term resistance

The Dollar index has broken above the Ichimoku cloud in the 4-hour chart and above the long-term trend line resistance. The trend is bullish as the price is making higher highs and higher lows. Support is at 89.60 once again. Resistance is at 90.55.


Black line -long-term support

The Dollar index bounced off the long-term 50% Fibonacci retracement of the rise from 72.75 to 103.60. The price is still inside the monthly Kumo (cloud). I expect a strong bounce towards the upper cloud boundary over the next few weeks. I would not chase short positions in the Dollar index at current levels.
