Related to currency basket of the US dollar index

(57.6% in euro’s, 13.6% in Japanese yen, 11.9%

in British pounds, 9.1% in Canadian dollars, 4.2%

in Swedish crones and 3.6% in Swiss francs).

Since the index went up in 1995 from a long term

resistance level of 80 to a high of 120 in 2001, at

the time the euro was introduced, it dropped to a

low of 72 in March 2008, but has been followed by

a strong upward correction to $ 87 well above the

historic resistance level, before showing a new

correction to a current level of 77.
