The US Dollar aiming for a short term recovery

The US Dollar aiming for a short term recovery

Fundamentally speaking we are very bearish on the USD and have been since March-April 2020 when the Coronavirus pandemic pushed global Central Banks to increase their asset purchasing program and their balance sheet to new all time highs. This massive round of Quantitative Easing has weighted heavy on the US Dollar which has devaluated by around 10% since its peak in March.

Having said that we are looking at a possibility of a short term rally in the US Dollar. Technically speaking the DXY (US Dollar Index) is bottoming around the 92.00 mark and has been trading in a range since late August. US Unemployment Claims and Philly Fed Manufacturing Index are key today.

Unemployment Claims have stabilized at around 700k per week after the big spike on the pandemic lockdown (6M+) so our eyes are on the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index which is a gauge to how well the economic activity is doing.

Last month the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index surprised the market beating expectations by double  (32.3) and today it also beat expectations (26.3 vs 22.0) but came lower than last month’s number. The overall reaction seems to be neutral but we have to wait until the New York open to see the US volume in.



If we look at the DXY chart we can clearly see a higher probability of a short term rally in the US Dollar from the bottom of the range. Our validation level is the 92.70 mark at which point the reversal pattern would be broken with and a possible short term rally triggered.

Heads up to this week’s highs around the 93.20 level for some possible resistance. One of the best scenarios to play this USD strength would be short the NZDUSD.
