U.S Dollar Index: Bearish, Eyes 94.30 Levels!

As long as 95.10 resistance holds on a daily closing basis, the U.S dollar index remains on the downside to 94.30 levels, a halt is likely, it may turn higher from here if seen it will aim the 94.65 level, above that level will test 95.10 level (main) where rejection is expected. However; below 94.30 – not easy – will look for 93.78 levels, further down, support comes at 93.35 levels.

On the upside, resistance comes at 95.10 level, a daily closing back above 95.10 level will challenge 95.82 levels, above that level will extend the bullish move to 96.48 levels, further upside will aim 97.12 levels.

The U.S.D may dip to 94.30 before a strong reverse to the upside. A daily closing above 95.10 will bring a strong bullish move to the upside…
