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 yesterday that “Price is now nearing a high risk area for bulls defined by the 100% extension of the rally from the September low, 50% retracement of the decline from the June high, channel resistance, and June low. Expect a reaction.” The reaction at the channel does suggest that this level will not be broken easily. Expect some corrective activity into 10000/20.

FOREX Trading Strategy: I favor buying dips into 10000.

LEVELS: 9961 9991 10020 10060 10100 10173
