USD Index Recovers With Caution!

As long as 89.00 support holds on a weekly closing basis, the USD Index remains in a recovery mode and further upside could be seen to the 90.30/90.95 levels, a halt is likely and it may turn lower from here, but a break will extend recovery to the 92.38/93.17 levels, further upside, resistance comes at the 95.00 levels.

Due to a lack of important news and a good Friday holiday, the U.S dollar may correct higher.

On the downside, support comes at the 89.00 levels, a cut through this level will restore the downside momentum and open the 87.78 levels, further down, support comes at the 86.82 levels ahead of the 85.00 levels.

 

Conclusion: The USD Index sees recovery threats above the 89.00 levels with caution.

In the week ahead, the global financial markets will focus on the final reading of fourth-quarter U.S. growth.
