US Dollar Index price analysis: DXY challenging 200 DMA, remains highly vulnerable to the downside

  • DXY is under heavy pressure below the 97.70 level and the 200 DMA. 
  • The 97.20 support level is on the bears’ radar in the medium term.

DXY daily chart

DXY (US Dollar Index) is trading in a bull trend as it is challenging the 200-day simple moving average (DMA). However, DXY is becoming increasingly weak and at risk of a selloff.

DXY broke below a critical support at the 97.70 level while trading below the main SMAs. At this stage, it seems that it is too late for bulls to intervene as a decline towards the 97.20 support level seems virtually inevitable.
