| 1 maj, 2013 | 0 kommentarer

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar continues to grind through technical support levels. The SP 500 pushed higher but failed to overcome the psychologically significant 1600 figure.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices broke support at a rising trend line set from late February to challenge the 10424-28 area marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement and the March 22 close. A break beneath that aims for the 38.2% level at 10330. Trend line support-turned-resistance is now at 10461.
