Valeria Bednarik, FXstreet.com Collaborator, says that profit taking could support the USD increases: In a very fast movement, majors are falling more than 100 pips against dollar. Probably some profit taking and the due corrections trend needs to continue. Watch the 1.3500 level for Euro, the 95.50 zone for Japanese yen, and the 1.4330/50 zone for GBP.
