The US Dollar Index had a very strong session on Tuesday as the "risk off" trade came back into play. The 80 level continues to be the focus of attention, and if we can get above this on a daily close, we would be very interested in going long of this market. We think that once the 80.25 level is broken above, that the 81 handle will be the next stop. Above 82, and we could see a serious rally in the US dollar.
As for selling, we would have to break the bottom of the supportive hammer that was printed on Monday, which we have sensibly called the 79 handle. We don't see the sell side at the moment, but the overall trend certainly would favor this move if it comes.
