US Dollar Index Technical Analysis: The 55-day SMA holds the downside for now

  • The weekly correction lower in the greenback appears to have found decent contention just ahead of the 55-day SMA near 96.30.
  • A breakdown of this area is expected to test the 95.80 region. Late-February lows and the critical 200-day SMA reinforce this area.
  • In this regard, the positive outlook on the index is expected to persist as long as the 200-day SMA underpins.
