Higher closes for the Canadian Dollar, British Pound and dollar index while lower for the Euro Fx, Swiss Franc, Japanese Yen and Aussie Dollar.  Nothing different came out of the FOMC meeting so I would expect the dollar to continue higher and most of the currencies lower since they've been trending in those directions. Therefore, the dollar made a new CONTRACT HIGH AND CLOSE while the yen made a new CONTRACT LOW AND CLOSE along with a new CONTRACT LOW for the euro.  Also, the franc made its worst low and close since September 2013 and the Aussie dollar March 2013. On the other side of the coin we saw the Canadian Dollar make its best high in 1 1 1/2 weeks and the British Pound its highest high and close during the same period of time. BUY SIGNAL FOR THE DOLLAR INDEX. SELL SIGNALS FOR THE EURO FX, SWISS FRANC, BRITISH POUND AND JAPANESE YEN

Higher closes for the Euro Fx, Swiss Franc, British Pound,  Japanese Yen, Aussie and Canadian Dollar.  Continued talk of higher rates continue to fuel the dollar overall as another FOMC meeting begins on Tuesday with the results on Wednesday. Although all of the currencies were higher and the dollar lower nothing has remotely changed technically. The dollar had its lowest low and close in over a week with little support down to around 8175 but still looks very strong for a variety of reasons, the least not being the strong possibility of a raise in rates somewhere in the near future. So far the fed, which it like to do, has been just threatening to do so  The euro and franc continue to look at weak even after making their best highs (former) and close (latter) since Sept. 4th and 5th respectively. The yen settled three ticks higher ending its losing streak at five but nowhere near any decent resistance off of a daily chart. The Canadian Dollar did have a strong close but is now in a strong looking resistance area that tops out around the 9200 level. Meanwhile, the pound made its best high and close in 1 1/2 weeks but continues to look very bearish overall with its closest resistance above 16500. The Aussie Dollar also settled higher but, like the rest of the currencies, looks very bearish while its nearest resistance remains at the 9200 area on up. BUY SIGNAL FOR THE DOLLAR INDEX. SELL SIGNALS FOR THE EURO FX, SWISS FRANC, BRITISH POUND AND JAPANESE YEN

Higher closes for the Euro Fx, Swiss Franc and British Pound while lower for the Aussie and Canadian Dollar along with the Japanese Yen.  Continued talk of higher rates continue to fuel the dollar overall as another FOMC meeting begins on Tuesday. Little support until the 8250 area remains. The euro and franc continue to look at weak as the dollar looks strong while the yen settled down for its fifth session in a row making another new CONTRACT LOW AND CLOSE nowhere near any decent resistance off of a daily chart. The Canadian Dollar had its worst low and close in since April still is in a support area (bottoms out around 8900) but not looking so good at this time with good resistance just overhead. Meanwhile, the pound made closed higher making its best high and low close in a week.  The Aussie Dollar also fell for its fifth session in a row making its lowest low and close since last March. Not much support below either! BUY SIGNAL FOR THE DOLLAR INDEX. SELL SIGNALS FOR THE EURO FX, SWISS FRANC, BRITISH POUND AND JAPANESE YEN
