The US dollar index is grinding higher and higher but the momentum is declining. The US dollar index should make a downward corrective move soon before the next FOMC meeting. This is not the time to be long on the dollar. First we need to see a pullback.
Red lines - bearish divergence
The US dollar index remains in a bullish trend as the price is still above the Ichimoku cloud and inside the bullish channel. Support is found at 99.60-99.40. Red lines show how the stochastic is not following the index to new highs. This is a bearish divergence sign.
In the daily chart, we observe a bearish wedge formation as the daily stochastic is still at overbought levels. This is not the time to be bullish the US dollar index. This is the time to take profits and raise protective stops for long positions.
