  • The long-term MA crossovers are widely considered as lagging indicators and tend to work as contrary indicators in the short-term.
  • Meanwhile, on the hourly chart, the DXY has built a base around 95.00 for a convincing move toward the immediate resistance of 95.74 (September high). The hourly RSI is also aligned in a more bull friendly manner.
