DXY daily chart

 
Although DXY had an upbeat start to the week the greenback is still trading between its main SMAs on the four-hour chart and below the 99.60 resistance. If sellers come back they will likely be looking for a break below the 99.30 support level en route towards the 98.90 and 98.20 price levels. Alternatively, a daily close above the 99.60 can attract further buying interest for a retest of the 100.00 figure in the medium-term.
