US Dollar Index (DXY) Trading Signals

MacroVar estimates the following signals: US Dollar Index (DXY) momentum, US Dollar Index (DXY) trend, US Dollar Index (DXY) oscillator, US Dollar Index (DXY) RSI and US Dollar Index (DXY) returns.

US Dollar Index (DXY) Momentum

Momentum trading is used to capture moves in shorter timeframes than trends. Momentum is the relative change occurring in markets. Relative change is different to a trend. A long-term trend can be up but the short-term momentum of a specific market can be 0. If a market moves down and then moves up and then moves back down the net relative change in price is 0. That means momentum is 0. A short-term positive momentum, with a long-term downtrend results in markets with no momentum.

MacroVarUS Dollar Index (DXY) momentum signal ranges from -100 to +100. The US Dollar Index (DXY) momentum signal is derived as the mean value from 4 calculations for the US Dollar Index (DXY). The timeframes monitored are the following: 1 Day (1 trading day), 1 Week (5 trading days), 1 Month (20 trading days), 3 Months (60 trading days)
For each timeframe, the following calculations are performed: 1. US Dollar Index (DXY) return is calculated for the specific timeframe and 2. if the return calculated is higher than 0, signal value output is 1 else signal value is -1. US Dollar Index DXY momentum signal is the aggregate of the the 4 values. A technical momentum rollover is identified when US Dollar Index (DXY) momentum signal moves from positive to negative value or vice-versa.

US Dollar Index (DXY) trend

US Dollar Index (DXY) trend signal ranges from -100 to +100. US Dollar Index (DXY) trend indicator is the mean value of the 8 calculations described below. The timeframes monitored are the following: 1-month (20 trading days), 3-months (60 trading days), 6-months (125 trading days), 1-year (250 trading days)
For each timeframe, the following calculations are performed: 1. US Dollar Index (DXY) Closing price vs US Dollar Index (DXY) moving average (MA) calculation: If US Dollar Index (DXY) is greater than US Dollar Index (DXY) MA value is +1, else -1, 2. US Dollar Index (DXY) Moving average slope calculation: if current US Dollar Index (DXY) moving average is higher than the previous MA, US Dollar Index (DXY) upward slope +1, else -1
US Dollar Index (DXY) trend model can be used as a trend strength indicator. US Dollar Index (DXY) trend strength values ranging between +75 and +100 or -75 and -100 show strong trend strength.
A technical trend rollover is identified when US Dollar Index (DXY) trend strength indicator moves from positive to negative value or vice-versa.

The most important trend indicator
The US Dollar Index (DXY) 52-week simple moving average and its slope are the most important indicators defining a market’s trend. US Dollar Index (DXY) is in an uptrend when US Dollar Index (DXY) price is higher than the 52-week moving average and the US Dollar Index (DXY) 52-week moving average has an upward slope. If fundamentals of the market have not changed and the moving average slope is still in uptrend, a price drop signifies a market correction and not a change of trend. Traders should watch oscillators like the US Dollar Index (DXY) oscillator and US Dollar Index (DXY) RSI to buy the dip and still follow the trend. The moving average slope turn signifies a change of trend.

US Dollar Index (DXY) oscillator

The US Dollar Index (DXY) oscillator estimated by MacroVar is the z-score of the current US Dollar Index (DXY) price versus US Dollar Index (DXY) 1-year simple moving average price. The formula for the US Dollar Index (DXY) oscillator is:
US Dollar Index (DXY) oscillator = (Current Price – 250 trading days US Dollar Index (DXY) simple moving average price) / (250 days US Dollar Index (DXY) price standard deviation)

US Dollar Index (DXY) oversold conditions
US Dollar Index (DXY) is oversold when it is subject to a persistent downward pressure due to extreme fund outflows. When the US Dollar Index (DXY) is oversold it is often due for a rebound. Values of the US Dollar Index (DXY) oscillator lower than -2.5 signify oversold conditions. It must be noted that the US Dollar Index (DXY) oscillator must be analyzed ibn conjunction with the rest of US Dollar Index (DXY) quantitative factors. Traders should pay less attention to overbought or oversold conditions during strong trends. They should pay close attention during counter trends and all combined with the US Dollar Index (DXY) RSI.
US Dollar Index (DXY) overbought conditions
US Dollar Index (DXY) is overbought when it is subject to a persistent upward pressure due to extreme fund inflows. When the US Dollar Index (DXY) is overbought it is often due for a correction. Values of the US Dollar Index (DXY) oscillator higher than +2.5 signify overbought conditions. It must be noted that the MacroVar oscillator must be compared to the rest of the US Dollar Index (DXY) quantitative factors. Traders should pay less attention to overbought or oversold conditions during strong trends. They should pay close attention during counter trends and all combined with the RSI.

US Dollar Index (DXY) RSI indicator

The RSI indicator measures the speed and change of price movements. The RSI indicator oscillates between 0 and 100. RSI is a useful indicator during normal trending market conditions when an asset price oscillates around its trend value. During big moves and strong trends however, like short squeezes or price spikes RSI and other oscillators don’t work.
During normal trend market conditions and when US Dollar Index (DXY) is in a downtrend RSI values between 50-60 signify overbought conditions before the downtrend is ready to resume. During US Dollar Index (DXY) uptrend, RSI values of 40 to 50 signify oversold conditions before the uptrend is ready to resume. It is strongly not recommended to enter a position when the RSI is “overbought” and falling or vice versa.

US Dollar Index (DXY) returns

MacroVar calculates US Dollar Index (DXY) returns for the following timeframes: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly. The formula for calculating returns is:

US Dollar Index (DXY) returns = (US Dollar Index (DXY) Closing Price – US Dollar Index (DXY) Previous Price)/(US Dollar Index (DXY) Previous Price)
