Daily chart for DXY
Volatility

Wednesday's trading range was $0.715 (0.76%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $0.630. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Support/Resistance

After trading as low as 93.820 during the day, Dollar Index bounced off the key support level at 93.830. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 94.640. After having been unable to move lower than 93.750 in the prior session, the contract found buyers again around the same price level today at 93.820.

Trend

Though DXY is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive. The market managed to break above the 20-day moving average at 94.393 today for the first time since June 14th.

Order Flow

With prices trading close to this year's high at 95.255, upside momentum might accelerate should Dollar Index be able to break out to new highs for the year.

Conclusion

While classical technical analysis indicates a bullish sentiment for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics show a different picture being bearish.
