The completion of the H&S top formation in the Dollar Index noted last week (see arrow) led to a sharp plunge in the dollar and a rally in the euro. The dollar index lost almost 7% in just five days before closing higher Thursday. It is up in early Friday trading, but there are no strong signs that the decline is over.
