US Dollar Index Chart Analysis with Fundamentals
According to the DXY market chart, the uptrend continues, as it has since 1981. The September 2022 ATH is the same as the August 1981 Hight, so the 1981 chart fell until the end of the year, then the following year DXY bounced from the $103 level and continued the uptrend chart, so the February 1985 chart set a new all-time high.
The continuous three-month falling chart of the dollar index made exact support from December 1981, and the resistance level is also the same, as shown in the blue line above, which correlates the previous cycle to today’s cycle.
According to the GDP growth data from 1980 to 1982. GDP was negative for six of the 12 quarters. The worst was Q2 1980 at -8.0%.24 Unemployment rose to 10.8% in November and December 1982. It was above 10% for 10 months.
From 2020 to 2022, the GDP was negative for four of the eleven quarters. Q4 of 2022 is pending, but the overall GDP situation is the same; the rate hikes are higher to combat. In 2020, unemployment during the COVID period was 14%, but overall after COVID, it was around 3.7%.
US Dollar Index Chart Analysis with Inflation Rate
When compared to 1980, inflation is very high, more than 14% and the Fed declares a recession this year, but after the peak, inflation falls quickly, and in 1982 inflation is around 6.8% and the next year inflation is almost under control, at 2.4%.
This year, 2022, had the highest inflation rate, at around 9.1 percent, but inflation is now declining; perhaps by the end of 2023, the FED will have control of inflation.
Since 1980, inflation has been falling, and the DXY chart has been disrupted; perhaps the falling inflation rate will catch up with the DXY index.
