DXY (US Dollar Index) is trading in a bull trend above its main daily simple moving averages (DSMAs).  Earlier on Tuesday, the US Core Consumer Price Index (YoY) came in better-than-expected at 2.2% vs. 2.1% forecast by analysts, but the market had only a limited reaction to the data. However, DXY rose sharply after the US announced it would delay some of the planned tariffs to December 15.
