US Dollar Bulls Stirring, But Not Yet Wide Awake

17 December 2009

The FX Trader's view -


MONTHLY CHART: The main sign in 2008 that long term bears were losing momentum was the breach of the bear channel top projection.

Subsequent resistance was found from the 38.2% recovery level.

The 76.4% pullback level is so far having a supportive influence (note this has worked well in EUR/USD too - see last week').




In the FX Specialist Guide we have repeatedly stated that it is possible we have been seeing a third/final downleg (from 81.466 08-Jun high) in the move that commenced from the 89.624 Mar high.

The recent violation of the bear channel top is encouraging for early bulls, while a close above the 76.817 03-Nov high now provides an initial bull signal.

Recovery through prior 77.428/77.688 lows (with current 23.6% level just above) would provide next confirmation of a temporary Dollar recovery underway, and we could next target the 80.000 38.2% recovery area.

S/term dips would be viewed as temporary.
