USDOLLAR – The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index (Ticker: USDOLLAR) is once again threatening the resistance line that extends off of the October and December highs. A break above would signal completion of the consolidation since August (nearly 8 months) and a significant breakout.

AUDUSD – Has broken to monthly lows and focus is on channel support near 10325 today (at about 10305 tomorrow). 10203, the 100% extension of the 10856-10422 decline, is a more aggressive target. Resistance today is 10385-10415.

USDJPY –The drop below 8300 suggests that a 5 wave decline is complete from 8001 (2/28 low). Expect a corrective decline to unfold over the next few weeks towards 8160-8200 (50%-61.8% retracement).
