The US Dollar has been in a choppy rising trend higher since bottoming in 2007/2008.

You can see that rising channel in today’s long-term chart.

But king dollar has been under pressure in recent months. So if the U.S. dollar wants to keep climbing into year-end, it will likely need a jump-start soon. If not, it may continue to weaken and provide a tailwind to precious metals like gold and silver.

As you can see, the U.S. Dollar Index has been rejected by its overhead rising trend line a few times. The latest rejection has sent the dollar back to an important 61.8% Fibonacci level at (1). This level acted as resistance twice but is now acting as support.

This is a huge spot for king dollar. A bounce higher would keep the currency in the upper half of the rising channel, while a break lower would open the door for further downside while providing a tailwind for gold, silver, and the miners. Stay tuned.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.
