The US Dollar Index has been forming higher highs and lows since the printing of the trough to the 91.00 levels of return in September 2017. In addition, its upward channel support trend line remains intact without breaking below all hollow. Looking at the last wave pattern, the US Dollar Index could be the production of a potential ending diagonal and may be in its last stage of rally, which might push through 94.50 levels. If this wave count holds to be true, the index to stay above 93.25 levels to push through its resistance line of the channel, which is seen through 94.40/50 levels for now.
