The oversold dollar recovered on Monday versus the European currencies and consolidated against the yen The US currency should march higher against the pound, euro and the franc, as it looks increasingly bullish here, particularly since the pound has no business making a living above $2. Today, keep an eye on the Conference Board Consumer Confidence and the Existing Home sales reports â€“ they may be market movers.
Euro/dollar headed lower on Monday, but reduced its losses by the close. It remains overbought but it should only attempt to fall further today.

Oscillators are mixed.
Dollar/yen made the expected recovery only a temporary basis, but didnâ€™t hold on to losses either. Expect more consolidation today.
