USD Technical Analysis: DXY, EUR/USD Reversing After Sentiment Extremes

The US Dollar Index (DXY) is having a tough go at it today with the EUR/USD rallying sharply. To end last week the Euro came within a handful of pips from the 2017 low at 10341 before reversing course. The bounce has the first level of resistance in focus.

The 2020 low at 10636 was breached a few weeks back, recently tested as resistance on a small bounce. It will be the first level to watch for signs of a weakness to occur should price have enough momentum to get to that point. There is also a trend-line that will likely be in confluence as well, it runs down from the late March peak.

Given the extremes we saw in sentiment on the dollar move, a retracement of such a small amount, relative to the larger move, should be doable.

This will likely have the DXY trading down near 10235, the monthly low. That would be an interesting spot to see how the market responds. Given how extreme the trend became, even if it we are to see it reassert itself relatively soon, a bounce off support and range appears to be a likely scenario.

For the DXY all of this is occurring around the 2017 high, and while we have seen the level matter in recent trade, a range around the level could form and it could end up losing its relevance.

For now, the outlook in the near-term trading bias is up for the EUR/USD and down for the DXY, but that could quickly change as levels come into play and a sideways chop could develop.

    • DogeDay always brings back memories of 2019 when my friends were diving into Dogecoin and joining farming activities. That's why I'm excited to explore the Bitget DogeDay giveaway event. Plus, with tomorrow's BTC halving, the excitement is doubled!
    • As a meme fan, I have been waiting patiently for the Bull trend that happened to BTC recently to get to all the alts and so we can have what we had back then in 2021 to happen again, but time the strength of the uptrend has not been able to match up with what I am expecting and I do hope that the halving will help, but looking at the hype that is usually expected from the meme community. I don't think I'll be able to wait for the trend to resume and so I am taking more steps ahead of the game, taking up all the opportunities I believe would help the price-trend of my holdings, especially for the DOGE memes and I have found this DOGEDAY event ongoing and it really made a lot of sense to me, because if we look at how the DOGE coins have performed in the past. I believe if we can have a Bitcoin day to celebrate the first cryptocurrency, then we should be able to have a DOGEDAY too looking at the success rate of the meme and the support from the community. For me, this is something special that is worth the energy, vibes and hype and worth participating it. There are different sections to the event, which include the Twitter part, where Bitget is sharing $3,00 to those participating( https://twitter.com/bitgetglobal/status/1780495739984150962Twitter Post ) and the telegram event, and I believe this will favour those that love to bet on the price of coins. They are sharing 100BGB tokens for this and the Discord event has a 90BGB token to be shared.  If we can have Bitcoin's day, then this DOGEDAY should be observed in all the DOGE communities and I will admonish meme lovers to observe events like this because it reflects the nature of memecoin and the hype around it.
