Dollar Index Update

$USDX Daily Chart - The dollar index gained last week as expected, reaching the first check point at 1.382 of BC (previous post). The Euro and Pound weakened about 130 pips and 180 pips respectively against the dollar while Yen, Swiss Franc and Canadian Dollar weakened 131, 130 and 160 pips respectively.

$USDX 4 hour Chart - I remain bullish on the US against the Yen and Canadian Dollar, but I think it might find resistance against the Euro, Pound and CHF. Next check point for USDX is at 84.82. Economic Data Calendar
