    You are going to see the US starting to talk down the Dollar. The vibe is getting louder here.

    Strong dollar is hurting more than helping and the slash in oil has put a big dent in the economy. Gas prices are starting back up now. Back up to $2.39 a Gallon here in Ohio. Much higher in other states.

    Don't rule out a rate cut from the Fed either BTFW.

    Traders who took this trade should move stops to break-even and consider reducing their position size as we head into tomorrow’s European Central Bank monetary policy statement.

    Euro - almost bottom of the pile now.
    The Euro has had a torrid start to the year. It turned bearish on my trend-based ranking in the 2nd week of January and has remained there since.
    Looking at the Euro against each of the other 9 major Currencies in my ranking system, there appears to be no immediate end in sight to it's broad period of under performance. In almost all cases, the Euro continues to look like a "sell into strength". Potentially it could be in the early stages of base building against the Norwegian Kronor, but the same could have been said of EUR/SEK up until very recently and as previously mentioned, that has now taken a distinct turn for the worse.
    The bearish trend is starting to become quite mature for EUR/USD & EUR/GBP, but in the case of EUR/CAD & EUR/NZD (see chart) downwards momentum is only just starting to gather pace. In all cases, the Euro is beginning to get stretched over the short-term, hence my earlier mention of looking like a "sell into strength"
