US Dollar Index And Select USD Pairs Trade Setups

The week is starting off with some modest US Dollar Index (DXC) weakness, but nothing that was unexpected. However, I have adjusted the wave count to account for this.

I am comfortable remaining long in USD/SGD as it is performing better while the US Dollar Index has been selling off. The same goes for USD/JPY and USD/CHF – pairs we will need to keep an eye on for possible longs when DXC completes the correction.

As the FX Strength Meter below shows, DXC is off .21% from the recent high while USD/SGD, USD/CHF and USD/JPY are off less.  It is reasonable then to assume that when DXC resumes the uptrend that these pairs should pop nicely higher.

Using this simple compative measure allows traders to position themseleves in the pairs that are most likely to respond when trends resume. Stay patient and remain focused.
