The US Dollar Trade Weighted Index chart has a 'Peak' Key Day Reversal feature drawn on it. Although small in size, the bearish key is plotted at 98.151; near 11 April resistance at 98.455. What is more, it has taken valuations back beneath the May high at 97.775, generating 'bull trap' fears for a further pullback over the short term, possibly towards initial support at 95.454; near the 50-day Moving Average.
At the time of writing, the US Dollar is down against five of the members, only up versus the Canadian Dollar (see Daily Analysis section for the chart).
Following on from the Chart of the Day section, the US Dollar is currently trading in positive ground against the Canadian Dollar. Priced at C$1.2974 a short time ago, the US unit is probing the 2008/2009 ceiling at C$1.3065. Against the background of an overbought RSI indicator, that barrier may yet hold up the US$'s advance. However, in the event of a breakout, next important chart support is around the C$1.4000 region.
The US currency has plotted a bearish key reversal against the Japanese Yen. The (small) feature, drawn at Y124.48, has probably capped the rally from the prior trading band/base (partially shown) for the near term. That rally had been heading back towards the June high at Y125.86. Still, a fall beneath earlier July support at Y120.41 would be required to reaffirm that barrier.
The 'Peak' Key Day Reversal plotted by the US$ versus Norway's Krone is worth a mention, as it demonstrates continuing resistance beneath the March ceiling around NK8.40. A drop under initial support near NK8.00 would provide further proof of the strength of that barrier.
The Euro tried to fight back on Tuesday. Against the British Pound, a 1.1% gain was recorded, as the single European currency paused its long-term downtrend. On a shorter-term basis, the Euro could launch a 'bear trap' recovery, possibly towards the 50-day MA, following the failed break under the June low at �0.6989. Having pointed out that technical potential, however, one notes a general bullish interest in the UK currency this morning, with this rate trading at �0.7005 at present.
