The Dollar Index traded sideways for most of the day; the US Dollar closed marginally strong against the Euro whereas closed flat against other majors. The medium trend is bullish till 80.00 ranges are holding on weekly closing basis, though 83.30 ranges would act as formidable resistance. Historic congestion is seen in the ranges of 81.40-83.50.
The benchmark equity index of the Dow Jones has managed to close above 12380 ranges making 12300 as the short-term support. Historic correlation between DX Vs DJIA is signifying USD bearishness in long-term, but if 83.50 is given away on monthly closing basis; long-term bottom would be posted in the USD.
NYMEX Feb Crude has succumbed to profit taking after making a high of 103.90 ranges during last week and is currently trading at 101.60 though the short-term trend is intact till it is trading above 99.00 ranges; it seems the bullish momentum is loosing at current ranges.
