USD could be coiling for another large rally

After beginning a nice rally, and subsequently correcting that initial move, the USD has put in a higher low and appears ready to break out to new trend highs, hopefully confirming an uptrend. I think the odds that this move will be sustained are higher than even.

The reason I am still bullish is that the USD has held up very nicely and has formed a cup-and-handle pattern (see above USD/CHF chart). If price breaks above the top of the handle, it should sustain a nice continued rally, as opposed to reversing and continuing the long-term downtrend.
