Los Angeles: how to spend over $2000 in the world's worst traffic

SDRs (Special Drawing Rights) and the US Dollar (by W. Snyder)

The next meeting of the IMF (International Monetary Fund) will be on 21st to 23rd April 2017 in Washington, D.C. The US dollar is overvalued in relation to other currencies, and therefore it could be a good idea to sell US dollars just as this Newsletter has recommended selling US equities now since the prices are very high and a correction to the bull market is overdue. It is unlikely that this cycle will last to the end of 2017. One could then reenter the market after the correction.

Technical analysis : GBP/USD remains on the back foot

The GBP/USD pair erased most of Friday's losses yesterday, successfully climbing over the 1.2450 level, thus, breaching the immediate resistance area. Now the British currency is being supported by a strong demand area around the 1.24 major level, with the weekly PP just being a minor nuisance located at 1.2449. Technically, the Cable should remain above the 1.24 mark today and pave its way towards retaking the 1.25 handle. However, technical indicators are still unable to confirm the possibility of the positive outcome, leaving the door open for another leg down.
