Despite hitting a 3-1/2 year bottom of 101.19 in Mar due to risk-off trades on COVID-19 pandemic, dlr's brief but strg rise to 111.71 signals temp. low is in place. Having said that, although the pair ratcheted lower to 102.60 at the start of Jan 2021, subsequent bounce to a 16-week peak at 105.76 in early Feb, then 106.22 Wed suggests gain twd 107.16 (50% r of 111.71-102.60) may be seen, 'bearish divergences' on daily indicators would cap price below 109.84. Only below 104.39/42 signals top is made, risks 103.33.

Today, dlr's decline fm last Wed's 5-month high at 106.22 to 105.25, then Mon's break there to 104.99 suggests recent upmove fm Jan's 102.60 bottom has made a top n as long as 105.62 holds, stronger retrace. twd 104.42 is envisaged but 103.98 should hold.
