U.S. Dollar Index (USDX)

U.S.-China Conflict Triggers Safe-Havens Trading. U.S. Dollar Index chart traded about 0.3% lower by the Asian afternoon to 106.120.

The dollar stuck in choppy trade on Wednesday, after its biggest surge for weeks as Fed officials talked up the potential for further aggressive interest rate hikes. On Tuesday, Fed officials Mary Daly and Charles Evans signaled that they and their colleagues remain resolute and “completely united” over getting rates up to a level that will more significantly curb economic activity.

The U.S. dollar index traded about 0.3% lower by the Asian afternoon to 106.120, amid a hint of relief that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan brought few surprises.

Technically:

The U.S. dollar index continues the secondary downtrend after breaking below the upward channel at 106.20 on the daily chart. The hourly chart’s index remains negative despite the support at 105.40 and 104.60. Meanwhile, the daily chart shows a high possibility of continuation towards the strong support at 103.55, which will raise two scenarios.

In the first scenario, if the index bounced from 103.55 it will most likely continue the main trend upwards. In the other scenario, if the index broke below the previous bottom at 103.55 it will be confirming the change of direction.

Technical indicators show mixed signals as RSI shows fluctuations between 104.60 and 105.40 while MACD shows a continuation to the downside.

U.S.-China Conflict Triggers Safe-Havens Trading. USD/JPY chart showing that the Japanese Yen hit the strongest level since mid-June against the greenback on Monday.

The Japanese Yen hit the strongest level since mid-June against the greenback on Monday as investors weighed the probability that the Federal Reserve will not raise interest rates as aggressively than expected. Also last week, the dollar crumbled against the yen, and two-year yields in the U.S. Treasury market also fell, after data showed the U.S. economy shrank for a second straight quarter.

Additionally, Fibonacci retracement signals support above 130 Yen per dollar. Meanwhile, the daily chart confirms the sharp continuation and signals a target at the previous support 126.of 60. Technical indicators confirm the hypothesis of continuation, and the moving averages remain diverging.
