Insight - Making Sense of the Narrative


One of the more interesting things to have occurred during the “hidden holiday season” has been the behaviour of the trade weighted US$, which has just completed a 23.6% fibonacci retracement of its rally from the February 2018 lows and, more importantly, has broken the long term support levels that have been in place for 18 months.
