Daily analysis of USDX for August 15, 2017

The index had limited price action during Monday's session, as thin liquidity dominated the markets, despite some sharp movements early in the American session. The greenback is now being capped by the dynamic resistance offered by the 200 SMA at H1 chart and one could expect further pullbacks. However, if it manages to consolidate above that moving average, the next target should be the 93.75 level.
