Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

FOREXAnalysis: The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index (Ticker: USDOLLAR) low is on the first day of the month thus a more bullish outcome should be respected as long as price is above that level (9901). I wrote last week that “the reaction at the channel does suggest that this level will not be broken easily. Expect some corrective activity into 10000/20.” The USDOLLAR reached 10001 today. An intraday plot reveals the corrective nature of the decline.

FOREX Trading Strategy: Start looking higher again against 9960.

LEVELS: 9935 9961 9991 10044 10071 10100
