US$ and Oil down.

The US$ is lower which has helped to support Gold and some FX pairs. There are mixed messages though with stocks looking forward, in a 'better days to come' kind of mode, and trading higher BUT Oil is trading lower on demand worry. The daily chart of the currency strength indicator is worth consideration as there seems to be a shift in progress.
