US Dollar Index Technical Analysis: DXY supported at 94.43 swing low and 100-day simple moving average


  • The US Dollar Index (DXY) is trading in a bull trend but made little progress since late May.
  • DXY traded below 94.43-45 (August 28 swing low, 100-day SMA) where bulls showed up and supported the market. Bulls objective is to break above 95.65 (July 19 high) in order to start making higher highs. 
  • However, a bear breakout below 94.43-45 (August 28 swing low, 100-day SMA) would likely see an acceleration down towards 93.71 (July 9 swing low) and 93.17 (June 14 swing low).
