    Summary
    The Greenback got hammered today as panic hit the equities markets; Crude Oil passes the $140.00/BBL mark and makes a record close. In my view, this is exactly what the USD needs to reach back into new 2008 lows. If you notice, the USD has been over 5% weaker earlier in the year against Yen and CHF while it is stronger against EURO and GBP; I think it is time to remember that panic doesn’t pay. Look for the USD to drop significantly during the early part of the next quarter but let’s not lose focus; the USD will bottom and recover at some point and with equities this cheap you can bet SWF money will be all over the bid on choice stocks soon. That repatriation will make a firm bottom in the USD this year late in my view. On the day, Cable found a top at the 1.9890 area; high print at 1.9897 tracking EURO higher all day. EURO found stops above the 1.5700 area as expected but also found more above the 1.5750 area stalling at a high print of 1.5766 and remaining firm all day. Both EURO and GBP had willing bids all day and saw lots of dip buying; despite good selling by Asian sovereigns overnight. USD/JPY finally broke under the 107.00 handle finding stops in good size at the 106.90 area; low prints 106.60 making a new two-week low.
    Forex traders note that volumes were good and trade was orderly suggesting that there were quality bids on the break as well as quality offers. Traders expect further losses near-term to close out the quarter. USD/CHF is under the 1.0230 area for a low print at 1.0219 making a mess of the bull’s balance sheets; expect further losses to end the week. In my view, the USD has broken into expected lows and the big question is if the USD can continue to fall; I think that is a slam-dunk given the high price of Oil. Look for the USD to fall overnight on follow-on selling. No US data tomorrow of note so expect continued pressure during the day and for the USD to finish the week somewhat lower.

    Comments
    Rate powers higher on Oil, stops and general USD weakness. Stops above the 1.5700 handle; more stops over the 1.5750 and 1.5780 area but offers will likely cap any further strength near-term. Asian sovereign selling seen overnight. US news today likely to create volatility so be ready for whipsaw or a reversal. Should cable break—EURO could go with it. Watch for model accounts on the bid today or Friday. The 50 bar MA likely to offer support should the rate fall back; close over the 50 bar likely to draw more buying to end the week. Bids will likely be in the 1.5580 area or so on any meaningful correction. Expect higher action this week as late shorts get squeezed.

    Comments
    Rate finally breaks as expected, OK to add on the close for additional weakness. Exporters noted on the offer the past 24 hours and the rate breaks below 107.00 with authority. Failure to close above the 108.00 handle Monday a good sign rate is ready to break back to the lows looking for stops under the 107.10/107.00 area. Exponential reversal signal still valid, rate is two-way but weaker each day. If short—let it work. If today’s US data is weak, expect a pullback again to test support. Look to add if rate can hit the stops in the 107.00 area near-term. Some topping seen; expect volatility. USD likely not this strong but more benefiting from Yen weakness. Stops likely rolled up under the 107.00 area for today so if a break happens—look for a drop to the 106.00 handle fairly quickly.
