DXY technical analysis

The DXY index plunged and now is traded outside of the rising wedge pattern. It’s pressing the weekly S1 (92.54) and the 78.6% retracement level. Also, the price is located below the down trendline signaling strong selling pressure.

Stabilizing under these support levels could confirm and could activate the reversal pattern. The further drop should force the USD to depreciate versus all its rivals.

The USD/CHF price goes down within a downtrend channel. It stands at 0.9146 below the weekly S1 (0.9149) level. The 38.2% (0.9136) retracement level is seen as the next downside target. Thus, the major downside target stands at the channel’s downside line.

The pair could resume its decline within the channel’s body as long as the DXY drops further in the short term. However, only an upside breakout above the downtrend line, down channel’s resistance, could signal that the corrective phase is over.
