The U.S. Dollar Is Close To A Trading Low

';



Written by Jim Welsh

Hardly anyone is positive about the dollar after its recent decline and the dovish bias of the Fed. This is in sharp contrast to the overwhelming bullishness about the dollar in March 2015, after it had soared from 79.00 in May 2014 to 100.39 in March 2015. The marked shift in sentiment toward the dollar is one of the reasons why I think the dollar may finish the correction that began in March 2015 in the next 2 weeks, making a trading low between 92.00 and 93.00.
