Investors began to take money out of higher risk assets when
the largest corporate entity in Dubai
asked creditors for a six-month break on debt repayments of almost $60

After reaching a high of 1.5144 earlier this week, the EUR
USD is now in a position to turn the main trend down on the daily chart on a
move through 1.4801.Technically, the
main range is 1.4625 to 1.5144.This makes

is helping to drive the Japanese Yen higher.This is beginning to raise concerns among Japanese officials that the
rise in the Yen will hurt Japanese export sales.There may be intervention if the rise in the
Yen begins to get volatile.
The USD CHF is not only mounting strong gains because of
flight to safety reasons, but because the Swiss National Bank sold Swiss Francs
in an effort to knock down its value after the recent rapid rise.
The AUD USD and NZD USD are down sharply.These two countries do substantial business
with emerging market countries and have also benefitted from the excessive
liquidity which has been pumped into the global economy. The main trend turned
down in the Aussie Dollar on the overnight break through .9060.A new secondary lower top has also been
formed at .9322.If the downside move
continues, then look for a test of .8905.
