Greenback fulfilling its promise (so far)

The teeter totter continues this week with the US Index breaking decisively through key resistance north of 81, currently trading around 82.40.  As shown below in my partner Cory’s work, $88 remains our potential upside target.  The wild card is whether further monetary intervention will disrupt the flow in the interim.

On the other side of this trade, copper has fulfilled its downside promise, having given back gains made in QE2, Twist and Europe’s LTRO liquidity pumps. Here was Cory’s chart on Global Copper at the start of last month (April 9) and below it appears updated today with price having fallen to near-term support. Weak global demand as the recession spreads, suggests copper has further downside.  The next near-term test in this chart is 22, marked with a circle below.

    I guess even BMO is hurting in Hinsdale. It was quite warm in the Harris Bank today, and when I inquired amongst the tellers, it was not well air-conditioned lately to ‘save money’. HAAHHAHAHAHAHA!

    They pay us Nothing for our money and now they won’t even aircondition properly to save even more money? Just look at the Canadian banks today:

    BMO, CM, BNS, RY. All decisively slicing their 200 DMA’s on heavy volume.
