Forex: Dollar Traders Monitor The Greed-Fear Equilibrium and QE3 Speculation

Forex: Dollar Traders Monitor The Greed-Fear Equilibrium and QE3 Speculation

While the S&P 500 is hitting record highs and the yen crosses have rallied over 20 percent since the beginning of the year, the most remarkable performance as of late has come from the US dollar. The greenback has broken to near three-year highs and done so on the heaviest momentum in 18 months. What makes this currency particularly interesting is that the fundamental risk of souring sentiment that would drive the overbought equities and yen crosses to reversal would actually redouble the dollar's strength. We update the watch on risk trends and QE3 speculation along with their trade opportunities in this weekend video.

Use the consecutive bar indicator to measure the historical significance and over-extended level of the markets.
