The DXY index bounces off its SMA-50 moving average

The US Dollar Index (DXY) is consolidating recent losses around 95.52, down 0.08% intraday early Thursday morning in Europe.

  • The DXY index is recovering from the intraday low during the two-day downtrend.
  • A sharp downside break of the short-term support line, pullback on the RSI keeps sellers hopeful.
  • The SMA-100 moving average, a five-week resistance line, adds to the bullish filters.

In doing so, the DXY Dollar Index bounces off the SMA-50 moving average but maintains the previous day’s downside break of a one-week support line, holding a resistance line around 95.66.

Given the negative sloping RSI line, theDXY index should remain weak even if it manages to clear the immediate trend line hurdle at 95.66.

That said, the SMA-100 moving average and a descending resistance line from December 15, around 95.75 and 96.10 respectively, become the main challenges for the US dollar index.

Alternatively, a sharp break down from the 95.40 SMA-50 moving average level will not hesitate to challenge the 94.62 monthly low.

Note that the 95.00 threshold will provide an intermediate stop during the drop between 95.40 and 94.62, while the October high of 94.56 acts as an additional filter to the south.

In short, the US Dollar Index (DXY) remains bearish despite the recent corrective pullback from the intraday low.
