The dollar held on to its overnight losses on Wednesday in the wake of Bear Stearnsâ€™ reports of large hedge fund losses. Lehman nixed rumors of the same fate, but the US equity markets didnâ€™t fare well. The mixed US data and Bernankeâ€™s statement didnâ€™t do much for the dollar. The US currency should remain under pressure and keep an eye on the Philly Fed report â€“ the market has a negative bias for the dollar.
The euro/dollar held on to its early gains in Asia, when it nailed to a new lifetime high. Hold long positions with profit taking only a stop.Immediate resistance is still seen at 1.3887.

Below the strong support at 1.3665, there is a distant level at 1.3570.
