Dollar calm while prospect of rate rise fades

The Dollar Index penetrated its descending trendline, indicating the recent correction is over, but the latest red candle warns of uncertainty.

10-Year Treasury yields retreated below support at 2.25% as turmoil in Europe (Greece) and China reduce the prospect of rate rises. Expect support at 2.10% and the rising trendline. Breach of support is unlikely, but a Fed retreat on rate hikes would warn of serious upheaval in financial markets.
