As illustrated, the price reached the target, but is now trapped between hourly support and resistance as follows:

The price is trading below the 21-hour SMA which has a confluence with prior lows that are now acting as resistance.

There are prospects of a downside continuation on a break below 1.2040.

Meanwhile, the DXY is a mixed technical picture from a daily perspective:

There has been a huge rejection which has left a bearish wick while, at the same time, the price has corrected to a 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level in a discount for the bulls.  

From a weekly perspective, the euro is in a corrective phase, so an upside correction is very possible.

 Therefore, the current support in the DXY is fragile.
