Elliott Wave Analysis: USD Index Wants A Piece Of A Bullish Run

USD index was in big sideways pattern unfolding since start of 2015; slow and overlapping price action with a personality of a contra-trend movement that looks completed. We see it partly as a flat correction in black wave IV; a three wave structure where final wave C should be made by five waves. Well, we have seen a nice decline from November of 2015 counted in five legs, but as an ending diagonal as shown on a daily chart. That's a reversal pattern that already caused a strong bounce in May, so ideally recent turn down was just a temporary pullback within a new ongoing uptrend labeled as blue wave 2-circled.

That said we are now looking at a bullish scenario, with more upside to follow into blue wave 3 to around the 138.2 or 161.8 Fibonacci projected zone. If for any reason price will break beneath the 95 area, then the correction in blue wave 2-circled will be back in play.
