Both near-break scenarios for both equities and the US Dollar have handily reversed from their high profile technical boundaries to start this week. From the 'risk' sensitive shares market, the Dow Jones Industrial Average's effort to break a high profile 'neckline' on a head-and-shoulders pattern this past Friday was instantly rendered inert Monday with the biggest daily rally in two months.
