The dollar is rallying in the markets after the U.S. economy released its data showing that durable goods orders fell worse than expectations and this causes pessimism in markets which caused investors to avoid higher yielding currencies in markets especially as Greece asked for help from EU-IMF. The Dollar Index, which measures strength of the dollar versus six major currencies, is currently inclining, trading at 81.85 while recording a high of 82.08 and a low of 81.43.
The euro dollar rebounded from a one-year low after Greece asked to activate the EU-IMF aid worth 45 billion euros, yet after the markets took its effect, we see it settled versus the dollar and might start declining, as Greece called for help meaning that they still are struggling to tame the deficit. The EUR/USD pair is currently traded at 1.3269 between the support of 1.3265 and the resistance of 1.3320 while recording a high of 1.3345 and a low of 1.3201. The momentum indicators on the one-hour charts are providing us with a downside trend.
The pound is seen declining especially after the UK released its first quarter GDP showing that the nation expanded by 0.2% after it was growing by 0.4% in the fourth quarter of 2009 while it was expected to keep that growing rate. The GBP/USD is currently trading at 1.5304 between the support of 1.5280 and the resistance of 1.5380 while recording a high of 1.5397 and a low of 1.5294, the momentum indictors on the one-hour charts are showing us that the pair is being traded in an oversold area.
Turning to the dollar yen pair, we see that they are trading in an oversold area while currently trading at 94.14 above the support of 93.40 and below the resistance of 94.70 while recording a high of 94.22 and a low of 93.30.
