  • DXY extends the weekly retracement below 105.00.
  • Further south comes the weekly low near 104.40.

DXY has been shedding ground for the last three sessions and has opened the door to extra losses in the near term.

In case the corrective decline picks up further pace, the index could extend the drop to, initially, the weekly low of 104.42 (September 11). A sustained pullback below the latter could prompt the index to embark on a potential test of the critical 200-day SMA, today at 103.03.

While above the key 200-day SMA, the outlook for the index is expected to remain constructive.
