    You can only take what the market will give you. Was waiting to go long but needed something to happen for me first and price popped before. Oh well. Still watching. Screenshot_2016-04-13-07-14-11.png

    USD hit resistance @ $95 area....now in consolidation...
    if US markets continue up, then USD might finally start falling back to $91 / $89 support

    USD still in a range, but now appears they may break it out to the upside due to Powell's comments yesterday.

    Currency futures are a future contract where the underlying asset is a currency exchange rate, such as the Euro to US Dollar exchange rate, or the British Pound to US Dollar exchange rate.

    Currency futures move in increments called ticks, and each tick of movement has a value.
