Dollar index (USDX) holds technical breakout gains into the weekly close and beyond

As covered here at the time, the surge in US non-farm payrolls on Friday helped the Dollar index (USDX) launch a dynamic move above its 200 day moving average (then at 104.44). The gains for the index later extended to a high at 104.94. The index held most of that gain into the US weekly close, when it ended the session at 104.88. Overnight the index has extended its gains to above 105 as the EUR/USD falls to fresh interim lows underneath 1.0750. The high seen a little earlier was set at 105.30. The next technical level is the high from May 14, at 105.45. The index has not traded to below 105 so far today (105.03 the earlier low). The dollar index is currently sat right on its session highs as this update is concluded
