Daily News: lots of moves
- The USD has been trying to recover. Yesterday the doji star pattern was formed. It always signals the indecision of the market and the possibility of a reversal. Yesterday the index rebounded from the support at 94.50. Up to now, it has been trying to move to 95. The USD needs really strong support to break above 95 (50-day MA lies there). Prelim GDP data will be out today at 15:30 MT time. If the actual data is greater than the forecast, the index will be able to hit above 95. Otherwise, there is a possibility of the fall.
