Looking at the monthly chart to take a long term view we can see a possible development of a new movement, that it starts with the formation of a . Which has as confirmation zone the level of 61.8% of of the last wave (101.80 - 103.82), and as a Target an old top from the Dot-com bubble that formed a (119.22 - 121.02). The (89.62 -88.25) below the price could be set as a stop-loss area since it would cancel the play, and would pressure a breakout of the 200, and a new impulse.
However, the current U.S economy landscape helps us to believe that the most likely movement for the DXY now is a one, because even with the monstrous number of 38.6 million Americans out of the job the stock market and the dollar itself didn't show proportional weakness. The strength behind this scenario lies in the and U.S Treasury intervention, flooding the market with free cash, opening swap lines and issuing debt at a fast pace to avoid a stumble of the markets, and providing liquidity for the rising demand for U.S Dollars.
The DXY has as propelling, the issuing of new bonds by the U.S Treasury, the auction of the 20-year Treasury had a massive demand and the Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has already expressed the will of issuing more of the 10-year Treasury; 20-year Treasury; 30-year Treasury, and even ultra-long term ones like 50-year Treasury 100-year Treasury, a movement that aims to match the trillions of dollars in debt that the government is issuing to fight the crisis.
Also, the U.S exports seem set to have a boost from the Trade deal with China, that already agreed to elevate the purchase of U.S goods for at least $200 billion, an inflow that could warm up the U.S market and propel new deals that might increase the U.S exports even further. A context that might open the gates for a huge flow of demand for U.S Dollars, and push the DXY for even higher levels, like the chart has giving signals of it.
