U.S. Dollar Index Elliott Wave Analysis Update

Currencies / US Dollar Oct 27, 2009 - 05:18 AM GMT

By: Alistair_Gilbert

Currencies

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the wonderful things about watching and trading currencies is the frequency with which they comply to Fibonacci retracements. Part of the reason is that the foreign exchange market is the most liquid and the most widely traded on a global basis, so Elliott Wave analysis, which is based on mass crowd psychology, works best.


Yesterday the US Dollar Index complied perfectly with another Fibonacci retracement level in this extended wave c of (B) when it stopped exactly at the 78.6% retracement of Wave (A) up.

In addition it stopped at the level where Wave 5 is equal to Wave 1 in PRICE.

If the dollar has bottomed, as I believe, then this will be a major turning point for most markets, as if the dollar rises from here, commodities will fall.

If we look at the Weekly DELTA chart, we can see that LTDs 6,7,8,9, & 10 all arrived on TIME. However, when there is a big move due, the LTD at the beginning arrives early and the LTD and the end arrives late. Thus LTD 11 arrived slightly early with M2 and LTD 12 low has arrived slightly late with M5 low.

Note also how there has been positive divergence on the MACD Histogram in the last couple of months as PRICE has been falling. We should now move up to LTD 13 high due mid January 2010.

If we move to the Daily DELTA chart, we can see that the US Dollar put in its low on the last day within the second standard deviation of LTD 12 low. Yesterday we had a hammer candlestick, which is often a signal for a change of direction.

Looking at the MACD Histogram, we have had positive divergence for the last week. The 8 period Stochastic has not given a buy signal yet but a move up through 25 would confirm a new trend.

In Elliott Wave terms, if Wave 3 is the extended wave, we expect wave 5 to equal wave 1 in PRICE. On this DT chart you can see that it has complied perfectly.

From this chart you can also see that Wave 2 was a perfect 61.8% retracement of Wave 1 and Wave 4 was a perfect 38.2% retracement of Wave 3.

Further confirmation that this is the end of the dollar’s fall is that the low on Wednesday at 75.085 was also within 2 one thousandths of the Fibonacci 78.5% retracement of Wave (A). Furthermore, Wave (B) has lasted a Fibonacci 1.618 in TIME of Wave (A).
