US Dollar Index (DX) Futures Technical Analysis – October 13, 2014 Forecast
December U.S. Dollar Index futures followed through to the upside on Friday, following the previous day’s closing price reversal bottom.
The short-term range is 86.87 to 85.015. The retracement zone of this range, which was the upside target, was reached on Friday. This zone is important because the market will either blow through it on the way to a new top, or fail inside it, setting up a potentially bearish secondary lower top chart pattern.
