position evening is the catalyst behind the slight rise the last two days.
Technically, holding above 115â€™08 is friendly and could trigger a
short-covering retracement to 117â€™01 over the short-run.Longer-term, the threat of rising interest
rates, oversupply of debt and a strong stock market should help to maintain
