    Today’s sample of Forex Analysis from ForexHound.com

    The U.S. Dollar managed to close higher today despite late session attempts in New York to erase earlier gains. This is strong evidence that most of today’s rally was due to short-covering rather than fresh buying. Comments from ECB President Trichet were supposed to show support for Bernanke’s comments from yesterday, but actually helped ignite the rally in the Dollar. Technically, the Dollar is oversold on the daily chart. This is another reason for today’s up move.

    The EUR USD closed lower after European Central Bank President Trichet talked up the Dollar during the overnight session. Once again it looks like the Euro having trouble with the $1.5000 area. The high for the year at 1.5063 in October has stopped all recent attempts to break this level. Traders seem fearful that the ECB may take stronger action other than verbal intervention to force the Euro lower.

    The GBP USD closed lower after making a valid attempt to turn higher for the day. The uptrend has been strong in this currency lately as the bulls seem to have control over the market despite attempts by Bank of England Governor King recently to talk this currency lower. It looks as if traders are beginning to believe that the economy has bottomed and that the BoE is getting ready to reduce quantitative easing.
