What’s up, fellas.

The dollar index traded nicely in line with our forecast Shooting Star in the Dollar Index – Good Time to Catch Retracement. The idea was to stay bearish below  $96.75 as the dollar index was expected to take a bearish turn to complete retracement at $96.25 (23.6%) and $95.85 (38.2%).
