  • The US Dollar Index (DXY) bull trend is morphing into a neutral to bearish one as the market broke below the 100-day simple moving average (DMA).  
  • The market is consolidating the recent bear leg for the third day in a row above 93.71 (July 9 swing low) as bulls are attempting to slow down the bearish slide. However, the RSI, MACD and Stochastics indicators are in bearish territories suggesting continued weakness.
  • Bulls failure to recapture 94.43 (August 28 swing low) and 94.60 (100 DMA) would lead to more DXY weakness with 93.71 (July 9 swing low) and 93.17 (June 14 swing low) as main targets.  
  • The FOMC on Wednesday will likely lead to much volatility on the US Dollar.
