Big-picture wedge continues to develop

The US Dollar continues to be a difficult market for traders as low volatility puts a strangle-hold on the trading environment. Looking at the big-picture ascending wedge developing it is well within reason to expect more of the same for a little while longer as the pattern continues to fill out towards its apex.
This doesn’t mean there won’t be room for opportunities or for a surprise move as low-vol is indicative of complacency among market participants. With that said, though, patience and trade selectively will be the key until a more fertile trading environment develops.

The two primary points of interest are the top-side horizontal line crossing over peaks since November and the underside trend-line of wedge, which also happens to be in confluence with the rising 200-day MA. There is another trend-line running up from early 2018, but of lesser importance than the one just beneath it.

For now, the thinking is to look for fade-trades off one of the aforementioned levels once momentum turns in the other direction. Should one side break (top-side looking most likely) then the game-plan will pivot towards running with the breakout as volatility may finally see a pop.
What may push the DXY into resistance early this coming week, is a falling wedge on the 4-hr time-frame. It may not trigger its top-side trend-line so waiting for an actual breakout is crucial. Given its close proximity to the 97.60s this is likely to only hold a small amount of potential before price could reverse off big resistance.
