The Dollar Index is extending its advancing streak today into its eighth consecutive session. It is at its best level since just before Trump’s inauguration.  It has retraced 38.2% of its decline from the January 3 high of 103.82.  That retracement was found a little below 101.

The 50% retracement objective is a hair above 101.50, while the 61.8% objective is found near 102.07.  The five-day average crossed above the 20-day moving average before the weekend for the first time in over a month.  Technical indicators such as the RSI, MACDs and Slow Stochastics confirm a constructive technical backdrop.

Gold and the Dollar Index tend to move in opposite directions.  In fact, over the past 100 sessions, the two have an inverse correlation of -0.93.   Although the correlation has softened a little, over the past 60 days, the correlation is about -0.81.
