US Dollar Index Technical Analysis: Further upside awaits on a break above 96.20/30

  • The better tone around the greenback has so far allowed DXY to advance beyond 96.00 the figure, although extra gains should come once the key 96.20/30 resistance band is cleared on a sustainable fashion.
  • The 100-day SMA just above the 96.00 mark remains a key threshold, while a break below this level could pave the way for a test of the 10-day SMA at 95.78 (lower bound of the previous multi-month sideline theme).
  • A deeper pullback is expected to face initial contention at 95.30, where sits a Fibo retracement of the September-December up move ahead of YTD lows in the 95.00 neighbourhood.
