1-Hour Chart

The DXY hourly chart looks to have hit a ceiling at the 98.45 area.  

It seems now that that the dollar may be looking to take a breather after a couple of days of strength.

The chart below is showing on the intraday timeframes the dollar is in an uptrend making higher highs and higher lows.  

On the downside, if the consolidation low of 98.27 breaks we could head to support levels lower down.

The next support is at 98.10 but watch out for 98.27 first.
