US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: OUTLOOK NEUTRAL TO BULLISH

Last week the US Dollar Index (DXY) declined into a an area of old resistance that was viewed as becoming a potential source of support. To recap from last week’s USD piece, the area around 97.80 made up a pair of minor horizontal lines from 2020 and more importantly a top-side slope created over the last couple of months.

Seeing a breakout and then emphatic test and pass of old resistance as support creates a strong floor for DXY. The broader tone and trend are higher for the dollar, but in the near-term we may see some sideways price action.

As long as the above mentioned support holds on a daily closing basis, then the trading bias is bullish, neutral at worst. It will require a strong drop through that support level to flip the script towards a bearish bias.

Looking higher, the 2001-present trend-line remains the big focal point. The connecting point for this line is the early pandemic days in 2020, so it has an important inflection point which adds to the weight of the trend-line.

It currently sits over 100 near 101, but is a moving target. There is a minor swing high from those early pandemic days that is in confluence with the trend-line.

Tactically speaking, if long from lower levels (i.e. support test), then it may be a good idea to sit tight with a move below 97.71 acting as a stopping point. For those looking to enter, a dip back towards support or a couple of few days of base-building may offer up a good risk/reward entry. Shorts at this time hold no appeal given trend and support in play.

    • Hey all, as some of you know, I've been reviewing quite a few new crypto projects lately and breaking down what they're about and the problems they aim to solve. Today, I'll be doing the same for a platform called HiveSwap. HiveSwap is a decentralized exchange operating specifically within the Bitcoin ecosystem. It utilizes the MAP Protocol to enable interoperability and facilitate seamless token swaps across Bitcoin's various layers - the base layer, layer 2 networks, and the MAP interoperability layer itself. A major selling point is HiveSwap's ability to bridge the gap and allow swaps between Bitcoin ecosystem assets and those from major EVM chains like Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, and more. This cross-chain functionality is huge. The platform is also tackling liquidity issues for emerging asset classes like inscriptions and BTC-related tokens. HiveSwap provides a decentralized avenue for swapping these types of assets and creating liquidity pools, rather than being confined to centralized venues. With its robust underlying swap technology framework, HiveSwap ensures reliability and security for users contributing liquidity. It also incentivizes liquidity provision through liquidity mining rewards paid out in tokens. Overall, HiveSwap is positioning itself as the leading decentralized exchange within the Bitcoin realm. It's solving key interoperability challenges, bringing much-needed liquidity to newer assets, and leveraging proven tech for secure, trustless cross-chain/cross-layer swaps. HiveSwap is bridging multiple gaps in Bitcoin DeFi.
    • For those who love memecoins, there's an exciting new project called RUNES•X•BITCOIN that's worth checking out.    It's a meme coin developed using the Runes protocol on Bitcoin's blockchain. The "X" theme is a clever reference to Elon Musk and the idea of limitless possibilities.   But what makes it truly unique is that it's 100% decentralized and community-driven. The entire token supply was airdropped for free to anyone holding assets with the letter "X" in the name or ticker.   So if you had X domains, X NFTs, or BRC20 tokens containing X, you automatically received free RUNES•X•BITCOIN tokens. How's that for decentralized distribution?   The project has already exploded in popularity. Over 100,000 addresses now hold this Rune, making it the biggest one by that metric. And get this – the market cap skyrocketed from $2.1 million at launch to over $13 million! Insane growth. If you're looking to get involved, I heard Bitget has a series of events planned for this project, so you might want to check those out.   Some other key highlights: - The Rune code 110# seems to have a hidden meaning  - It utilizes cutting-edge Runes tech built on Bitcoin's UTXO model for fungible tokens - Fully decentralized, with no central control   RUNES•X•BITCOIN is bringing meme culture and community experience to Bitcoin in an innovative, decentralized way. While it might be considered a legitimateshitcoin, the concept and crazy early traction are certainly wild! It's definitely a project worth keeping tabs on in the BTC space.
    • I guess alot of people will be smiling rn having recieved their airdrop allocation some couple of hours ago. ANd with the pretrading price at $2, a lot of those farmers are anticipating huge cash out but let's see what the listing brings!
