Dollar Finally Ready to Bounce?

By -

Every since 2017 began,the US dollar has had the stuffing knocked out of it. I wanted to point out that the dollar, as viewed through symbol UUP, is getting very close to the lowest levels of the past two and a half years. If this double bottom holds, we could get a nice bounce (which would drive down the price of gold in a big hurry). I’m playing this by way of an FXE short (that is, the Euro), which I entered about an hour ago.

It has been a contrarian trade that has not yet worked out; by that I mean my short position on the Euro and preparation for a firming US dollar. Yesterday the market cheered the supposedly dovish Fed, and USD got smeared again as the world’s counter party paper boosted assets far and wide… on nothing but perceptions and a hell of a lot of momentum and gaming on FOMC day.

USD opened weak again today but so far at least, is sporting a Hammer which, if it stays in play, would be a bullish reversal candle.
