USD-index reversed nicely higher last week from the 81.32 level, which appears to be a first impulsive structure that is part of a larger and new bullish cycle for the USD.

As such, we expect much higher levels on USD-index in days and weeks ahead especially if we consider that decline from 83.50 was made a nice clear three waves which is a corrective price action, called a zig-zag. Ideally, market is now in a wave 2) pull-back that will look for a support around 81.20.

Critical/invalidation level is at 81.32 as wave 2) must never retrace more than 100% of wave 1). So as long that level holds we are looking higher.

 Bias Stay Aside
