Meanwhile, the Bollinger band and the weekly S2 are the nearest support cluster around the 1.29 major level, a breach of which is to cause the Greenback fall down towards the 2015 Q4 low. Technical indicators are unable to confirm either scenario, as they retain their mixed signals.
Today 58% of all open positions are long, compared to 56% on Wednesday. The number of buy orders declined from 72 to 58%.
