Short term conditions will remain volatile in the near term as financial houses come to terms with the notion that additional interest rate hikes are likely from the U.S, and the USD/SEK will remain under the shadow of a strong USD longer than many anticipated. Resistance levels seemed to become weaker yesterday after the 10.88000 level was penetrated higher and sustained.

The USD/SEK has certainly displayed the ability to trade lower and on the 13th of September a value of 10.41650 was seen.  However, the trend remains steady and a look at long term charts shows the USD/SEK continuing to incrementally climb.
