The price of the US dollar has been tumbling since Mays initial drop and there has been no let-up in the supply on a weekly basis since the end of June.

This leaves the market heavily short of the greenback and vulnerable to correcting that position.

However, from a short term outlook, the price is retracing 61.8% of the recent bearish impulse on the 1-hour time-frame and is meeting a counter trendline resistance on the 4HR chart.

There is scope to a run back to the recent lows which open prospects of a 61.8% retracement of the late July bullish impulse.

105.00/30 falls in as a realistic downside target should the dollar continue to bleed out and bulls guard the said trendline resistance.
