US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: DXY TRYING TO CROSS 21-YR TREND-LINE

The US Dollar Index (DXY) is trying to cross a trend-line dating to 2001, a line that also connects the very important Covid 2020 high. The DXY is currently above the trend-line on a daily basis, but given its duration you need to get out a crayon to draw it and look at it on a weekly or even monthly basis.

Nevertheless, momentum has been strong and we could see the important March 2020 high at 10299 tested here shortly. Given the extend nature of the market it seems likely that on a first test of that high we may see at least a set-back induced, but we will need to wait and see how momentum is shaping up at that juncture.

For now, the outlook remains bullish until we see a sharp reversal lower. In the near-term we may see some support come in at a small peak created last week at 10103. This is also right around the long-term trend-line. Would-be longs looking to play the trend may look there for support or the trend-line off the end of March low.

A decline through that support won’t turn the outlook bearish, necessarily. The trend is strong and until we see a hard break and failure to rally it must be respected. A breakdown below last week’s low at 99.82 could start to set into motion a larger decline.

On the flip-side, shorts don’t hold any appeal given the lack of clear resistance. With that in mind, a spike to the March 2020 high could change that view if we see price action get volatile around that 10299 level.

    • With BTC making its exponential highs, a couple new projects are springing up incredibly fast. The narratives popping up right now are gaming and AI projects. Through my research, I found a new gaming project with some good gaming use cases and tokenomics. The project is, flappyMoonbird. It is a web3 game metaverse with a Player vs Player based on a bird themed scope. At this moment, the project’s team has announced 3 games; Racing bird, AI birdnopoly and FlappymoonBird inclusive, these have gameplay and demo released. The game has also incorporated Play2Earn to its framework, while playing users are given latitude to play games casually to earn mystery boxes, and its native $FMB tokens and other prizes. After reading exhaustively about this project, I was on the lookout for where to buy it from. Reliable platforms like bitget have expressed intent to list it through its deposit to list activity. Consequently, by depositing some amount of it ($FMB) on the CEX, the platform will list the token and this will undoubtedly provide the project with further exposure just the same way it has done for some of its popular projects. From my personal experience, projects that are often incubated by the CEX in this manner turnout to perform exceedingly well. Taking a cue from projects like $CSIX and $GRIMACE that went through same procedure, after they got listed, the projects performed quite well and are still performing with very good price action thus far.  On a safer note, if the project doesn’t scale through the listing procedure, all funds can be withdrawn seamlessly. The project looks quite promising and I think with the platforms concerted efforts, it will get listed along with good price action.
