U.S. Dollar Index (DX) Futures Technical Analysis – Bullish Over 93.805, Bearish Under 93.275
The U.S. Dollar is trading higher against a basket of major currencies early Wednesday as investors await the results of Tuesday’s U.S. elections.
Generally speaking, a victory by U.S. Democratic candidate Joe Biden would be bearish for the U.S. Dollar because he is expected to spend big on stimulus and take a freer approach to trade, boosting other major currencies at the greenback’s expense.
Investors remained cautious, however, due to heightened uncertainty about the election outcome. A Trump win or contested results would be supportive for the U.S. Dollar.
At 02:03 GMT, December U.S. Dollar Index futures are trading 93.625, up 0.065 or +0.07%.
