USD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: DXY OUTLOOK IN THE DAYS AHEAD

The US Dollar Index (DXY) is continuing its recent run of weakness as it pulls back sharply from recent highs. The extremes in bullish sentiment suggested the dollar needed to cool off, and so the recent slide isn’t surprising.

The question is, is whether the USD can reassert its bullish ways quickly, or if it will need some time to digest the run before continuing higher. It’s also possible we are seeing a larger reversal, but at this time that appears to have a lower probability than an eventual trend continuation.

In any event, the DXY is trading around its first level of support via a swing low created on May 5 at 102.35. This is below the trend-line extending higher from the late March low, but even though the trend-line has been broken it doesn’t mean we will necessarily see further weakness.

However, if we see the DXY closes on a daily basis below price support then look for weakness to continue with the 102.35 level turning into a potential source of resistance. The next level up could be the backside test of a 20-year trend-line down near 101, but conviction is lacking in that acting as support until we see the DXY trade around it and show bullish price action.

If support at hand can hold and the DXY pushes higher here, then we may be in for a rangebound period of trading that would do the USD some good in terms of building a base for another run higher. Given the big move and extreme bullishness recently surrounding the dollar a little time would do it some good.

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
