Chart of the Day
The EUR/USD filled it’s gap today on the FOMC news that the U.S. Fed Chief Bernanke is planning more stimulus for the U.S. economy. The currency pair then promptly dropped off and formed an Engulfing Reversal pattern for a trade to the short side. There is support directly below, so proceed with caution. Reducing risk on a trade off the close of the daily candle would not be unwise.

Equity & other Markets
Stocks in the U.S. fell today after U.S. Fed Chief Bernanke announced further stimulus was in store for the U.S. economy. The Fed will be shifting holdings of shorter term securities to longer term securities thus reducing borrowing costs and offset risks of a recession.
