The Dollar index trapped inside Fibonacci price range.

The Dollar index had a strong week as price bounced off key Fibonacci support at 98.20 all the way to 100.85 where the rise stopped at another important Fibonacci resistance area. Longer-term trend remains bullish and as long as price is above 94.60 bulls remain in control.Orange rectangle – supportRed rectangle – resistanceThe Dollar index has stopped its rise just above the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the recent decline from 103 to 98.29. Breaking above the red rectangle resistance would be an important bullish sign that will increase the chances of seeing a move above 103. Despite the bearish divergence in the RSI in the Daily chart, as long as price is above 98.20 the chances of making a higher high above 103 remain high. If price breaks below the orange rectangle the chances of approaching the 95-94 level will increase dramatically. If at the start of next week we see a rejection of price around the red rectangle then we should expect a pull back towards the orange support area.

Sweden Services Sector Activity Weakest Since 2012

Sweden’s services sector contracted at the fastest rate in 15 years to hit its lowest level since 2012, survey data from Swedbank and the logistics association SILF showed on Wednesday. The Purchasing Managers’ Index for the services sector decreased to 46.9 in March from 56.4 in February.Any reading below 50 suggests contraction in the sector. The latest monthly decline was the largest in the survey’s fifteen-year history and the reading was the lowest since 2012. The order index and production sub-indices recorded the biggest declines in March followed by employment. The sub-index for the suppliers’ delivery times increased for the second straight month, reaching a record high. “Normally, rising delivery times mean increased demand pressure, but this time it is rather a lack of supply that contributes to longer delivery times partly because of the corona virus and closed borders,” Swedbank analyst Jorgen Kennemar said. Service sector companies plans contracted in March, which indicates a darker economic outlook in the future. The Composite PMI, which combines manufacturing and services, fell to 45.9 in March from 55.4 in the previous month. The material has been provided by InstaForex Company – www.instaforex.com…
