The US Dollar Bull Market

Currencies / US Dollar Aug 17, 2008 - 10:05 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Currencies Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Dollar ended the week with a sharp rally that confirmed the recent breakout and the base building that began following the March 2008 low of 70.70, analysis at the time suggested that the Dollar was heavily oversold and projected a target towards $78, which is now in reach following the USD Index close of 77.15 on Friday.


Last weeks continuing rally is taking the US Dollar into a short-term overbought state, especially as it nears resistance at 78, on break of which the US Dollar will target a move towards significant resistance at 80, following which the Dollar is expected to consolide with the previous resistance levels turning into support levels i.e. Major support at 74.30 and 78, before the next leg up through resistance above 80 takes place towards a longer-term target for the dollar of 90.

Whether or not the Dollar has seen its final low that brings to an end the 7 year long bear market, what the recent price action does signal is that the US Dollar is now in a bull market that looks set to run for at least a year, by which time the longer term trend will become more apparent, in that respect the bullish dollar trend is expected to continue into at least early 2009, which confirms analysis as early as of March 2008 that concluded that the commodities markets would enter into a bear market during the summer of 2008 that would last for at least 1 year and possibly as long as 2 years.

My recent articles have specifically warned Gold investors not to get caught up with gold bug fever by ensuring exposure to the precious metals is limited. If nothing else last weeks dollar action should send a clear warning to investors in precious metals sector and commodities in general to revisit their portfolio allocations as much of the demand for commodities such as gold has been built on the once unshakable investor premise that the Dollar is destined to continue drifting lower, which is clearly no longer valid.

Whilst the US Dollar immediately targets resistance at 80 on the USD Index, this translates into targets for the British Pound of 1.80, and against the Euro of 1.40.
