Here is the battered US Dollar Index. This is a market that I have been wrong about. I have mentioned the long term bullish cycle that kicked in last year and seemed to support price right on almost the exact day it should have to be valid. After that prices did rise nicely for quite awhile. However, we have gotten into quite a steep downtrend here. The commercials have been buying, but not an a super aggressive rate, and not enough to support the price yet.
We are now in a zone where if the long term up cycle is going to be valid, the price needs to be supported somewhere in the area of where we are right now. Since alot of the dollar strength has come from stock market weakness and a flight to quality situation, it is doubtful that this market will find support unless we have a stock market decline.
I have stated in here that we are due for a stock decline, and I still feel that way, however, there are no immediate sell signals apparent. So, until that changes, I do not expect much to change here. There are alot of people who focus on economics who say this move is caused by all of the deficit spending, the fallacy with that is that none of it has been done yet, it has just been approved. Be that as it may, you cannot trade based on large macro-economic views due to how inefficiently those views translate into daily market bias. Even when you are right, timing a view of the next several years into daily activity is impossible.
