The US Dollar is at critical support, and forex sentiment suggests it might break considerably lower. But what might lead us to buy the Dollar at these levels?

Retail forex crowds have bought aggressively into Greenback weakness versus the Euro, British Pound, and Australian Dollar. We most often use this as a contrarian indicator to price action; if everyone’s buying, we prefer to sell.

But there comes a point where our proprietary data shows crowds are TOO short. Is this it?
