    What is this? Can you explain it a little. Is it one of those square of nine things?

    [18:49 GMT August 24] USD/CAD opened in NY at 1.1093/96 after trading a range of
    1.1076-1.1133. The USD/CAD found an early bid, bolstered by the technical view
    from some analysts that the low of 1.1050 traded yesterday was now a base for
    USD/CAD. USD/CAD edged higher, bolstered to highs of 1.1120/25 after the USD
    rebounded sharply despite the decline in durable goods and new home sales.
    However, as with other dollar bloc currencies, cross sales tempered CAD weakness
    with CAD/JPY finding bids on dips to 104.50 and EUR/CAD fell from 1.4250 to
    1.4170. This helped CAD rebound with USD/CAD dropping back to 1.1100 into the NY
    Good offers remain at 1.1130/35, a break of which targets gains to 1.1170/75
    with buyers on dips to 1.1170/75 and 1.1050. Gold and base metals prices were
    lower but this was offset by more M&A with Rite Aid paying US$3.4 bln for the US
    stores of Quebec"s Jean Coutu group. Further support for CAD came from the
    performance of the Amex oil index which, after a volatile session, ended firmer
    on the day. No Canadian data for Friday with the focus on Fed"s Bernanke.

    [18:21 GMT August 24] The AUD/USD opened in NY at 0.7641/43 with price action
    caught in a very tight range of 0.7620-45. US data was worse than expected for
    both durable goods and new home sales which fell 2.4% and 4.3% respectively.
    But, EUR/USD was unable to rise above 1.2850, triggering a wave of USD buying
    into the London close. AUD/USD, which also met with consistent selling around
    0.7645 despite the weak US numbers, pulled back to 0.7620 but held up in the
    face of the EUR/USD losses with EUR/AUD buying, a bounce in AUD/NZD off 1.1950
    and AUD/JPY buying underpinning the AUD. AUD ends near 0.7623/25.
    Some negatives emerged for the AUD including a firm tone in the USD index which
    appears poised to break higher. Gold was easier on the day as was the LMEX
    index, while the Baltic Dry Index has been trending lower after reaching record
    highs this month. Of note has been the sharp drop in copper which bodes poorly
    for AUD with the decline in house building needs for copper wiring and plumbing
    seen weighing on the commodity and likely to pressure the AUD. AUD support is at
    0.7600 and lower at 0.7550/60 with large stops tipped under this level.

    AUD Wedgie Update - I was just checking and I entered this trade on July 31.

    Short at .7666. 50 points or so in 4 weeks. Now that's progress.

    Here's the scrunched up view so you can see where the studies originate. My first target is down around 6200. Depends on how long the commodities decline. Year or two maybe.

    Might start buying copper at $2.00 or so. Whenever it gets to the green line.

    Not sure what this chart is saying?? Must be saying we are going to find a substitute to compete with copper. Verizon running lots of fiber to homes. Oh yeah, not to any new homes with electrical wire since housing bubble has bursted. What will it be? Probably a fortune in the answer.
