Greenback – The Round Mound of Rebound

Not to date myself but for all those Charles Barkley fans out recognize that “Sir Charles” was a formidable force and the shortest player at 6’6 to lead the league in rebounds. Serving as inspiration I expect the US dollar to stage a rebound from current trade. The same support levels that held in mid-June I expect to hold around 80.70 in September futures. The first confirmation that an interim bottom has been established in the Greenback would be a settlement above the 20 day MA (light blue line). This would likely be followed shortly thereafter by a trade back to the 38.2% Fib level and 50 day MA that both come in just above 82.25. While I am not calling for a bull market I do see a 2-3% appreciation in the coming weeks.

Though I will not take a long trade with clients in the dollar I will use this analyses aiding with entries and exits in other commodities that appear to be influenced by the dollar movement.

US Dollar Index Futures chart for August 22, 2013

Markets that I feel could be influenced by a 2-3% appreciation in the Dollar:

  • Gold, silver and energies move lower.
  • Cocoa moves lower.
  • Currencies move lower. I like bearish trade in the Pound, Euro and Swissie.
  • We get a bounce in the Treasury complex.
