I read this morning that the volatility in the Dow over the past 40 sessions (high to low range of 2.27%) is the lowest since at least 1915, possibly ever.  While it fits nicely with our analog, and is therefore somewhat heartening, it also suggests a great deal of volatility lies ahead.

Consider the US dollar’s continuing climb in the same channel for over four months.  If the FOMC really isn’t going to raise rates in a few weeks, is there any reason for DX not to have sold off by now?2016-09-07 DX daily 0600
