  • DXY buyers cheer upside break of six-week-old falling trend line, bullish MACD.
  • 21-day SMA, a two-week-old rising trend line add to the downside filters.
  • December 07 top, early-November lows can lure bulls beyond 50-day SMA.

US dollar index (DXY) stays positive around 90.81 during Monday’s Asian session. In doing so, the greenback gauge extends the upside break of a descending trend line from December 07 towards a fresh high since December 21.

Not only the successful break of previously key resistance line but bullish MACD and sustained bounce off 21-day SMA also favor DXY bulls.

As a result, the quote is up for challenging a 50-day SMA level of 90.96 ahead of teasing the 91.00 round-figure and December 07 top surrounding 91.25.

It should, however, be noted that the US dollar index upside past-91.25 will propel it towards early November lows near 92.15.

On the contrary, a downside break below the previous resistance line, now support, near 90.57, will have to drop beneath an immediate rising support line, at 90.33, as well as a 21-day SMA level of 90.13 before revisiting the 90.00 psychological magnet.

In a case where the greenback sellers dominate below 90.00, the multi-month-low marked during the month around 89.20 should return to the charts.
