The black line – resistance

The blue line – support

The Dollar index is making higher highs and higher lows above the 4 hour Ichimoku cloud. Oscillators are diverging, and the time for a pullback is getting closer. The pullback target is the Ichimoku cloud. Short-term support lies at 95.80 and the next level is at 95.

The weekly candle has broken above the tenkan-sen indicator (the red line) and is heading towards the weekly cloud at 95.55. A rejection at that level will push the index back towards the green trend line support near 95. This is not the time to be buying but to protect longs. A breakout above the weekly cloud will be an important long-term bullish signal.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company – www.instaforex.com
